Backland scored his seventh goal of the season for the Flames, who notched their second power-play tally in 27 chances. Monahan scored his 13th goal midway through the third period to add some insurance.

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
