STREAK SNAPPED

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

EDMONTON - The effort was there, but the execution was just a bit off.

And that, by the slimmest of margins, proved to be enough.

Connor McDavid scored the game's only goal, while goaltender Mikko Koskinen made 24 saves as the Oilers bit back and leveled the Battle of Alberta season series at one game apiece.

FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME

Kylington scores the first of his career, Quine his first as a Flame as Calgary knocks off Nashville

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

You could feel very impact of the fist pump from 80 feet above.

The roar he bellowed before anyone else, on the ice or in the swells of the C of Red, shocked us all to the core.

An emotional moment like that - 21 years in the making - more than earned a moment of ecstasy.

Oliver Kylington is now a member of the NHL goal-scoring fraternity. And on a night when the Flames were missing their No. 1 D man and the Pied Piper of the franchise, the offence from the backend couldn't have come at a better time.

In career game No. 7 for the young rearguard, Kylington scored first NHL goal, and added his first NHL assist on the game-winner midway through the third period, to power the Flames to a 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
