Calgary's win streak is now six straight, and they remain undefeated under interim coach Geoff Ward.
Perhaps most importantly during the recent run of a half-dozen triumphs is that the Flames keep getting better.
They are rolling four lines, getting offensive contributions across the board, playing with pace and speed, turning in solid play in their zone, and continuing - as has been the case all season - to get great goaltending.
Monday they managed to edge a high-flying, high-octane offensive team in the Avs, going blow-for-blow and coming out on top.
Tuesday they faced a much different style of opponent, the stingiest defensive team in the league this season, coming into the game allowing only 2.28 goals per outing (the Islanders were second at 2.38).
To complicate matters, they were without Matthew Tkachuk, who sat out with an upper-body injury he suffered against Colorado.
So, in went Zac Rinaldo, leading to more line shuffling - but the Flames didn't miss a beat.
Rinaldo tallied once and collected an assist, while Michael Frolik, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Milan Lucic also scored. Cam Talbot got the start, turning aside 46 shots in an impressive outing for him in his just his eighth start of the season.
He has now won two straight.
As is frequently the case, a good chance at one end often leads to a goal at the other.
That was situation early in the first period.
Michael Grabner looked set to capitilize on a broken play, getting the puck all alone in Calgary's zone with no one near him and skating across the crease with patience, waiting out Cam Talbot and firing the puck around him towards the open cage.
Unfortunately for Grabner - and the hometown crowd who had already started rising out of their seats - the puck went off the inside of the far post and out of harm's way.
Moments later as the Coyotes tried to skate it out of their zone, Rinaldo caused a turnover and made a quick pass to Frolik who made no mistake in tight, going forehand-backhand to beat Antti Raanta for his third goal of the season at 2:11.
Gaudreau got close to squeezing a backhand past Raanta a short time later.
No matter, he simply made good on his next chance.
Derek Ryan won a faceoff right into the tape of Gaudreau in the slot, the winger taking the puck and loading and firing it in one motion, the puck going high short-side past a partially screened Raanta.
Mikael Backlund continued his strong play of late and almost made it 3-0. He took a pass while parked in front of Raanta with his back to him, turning and faking wide before trying to snap it five-hole, the Coyotes 'tender snapping his pads together for the stop.
It wasn't just the offence that sparkled in the first, as Talbot also stood tall.
He made 15 stops, one of the best coming when Nick Schmaltz skated behind the net and fired the puck back to a trailing Christian Dvorak, Talbot spinning around and getting his left arm on a great shot.
Rinaldo made it 3-0 in the second period with a goal that earned a perfect 10 for style points. Frolik whipped a pass out from the corner to him and after calling for the puck with his stick in the air, he snapped it home as he slide on one knee for his second of the season at the 5:18 mark.
"I think every shift, we're coming off the ice and we're talking about our shift. Little things that we can do better, little corrections that we can make and also give each other positive feedback. 'Good job' here, 'good job' there. But also correcting each other at the same time. It's not like we're busting each others' balls so someone feels like you're nagging him, but it's that positive reinforcement all the time and I think that has generated onto the ice. The proof is in the pudding. It's working for us right now."
On the team rolling right now:
"You work hard and you eventually get rewarded for working hard. Things open up and things become a little easier. That's what's happening right now. Our whole team has worked so hard to get to this point, and the floodgates are kind of opening for us right now, and that's a really good feeling"
"It's huge, not only for me, but for the team moving forward so they can feel confident in me whenever I'm in there. So, these last two games and last night were big statement games for us coming into Colorado and then tonight. It brought us two points out of first place in our division, so we needed these wins on the road in two tough barns, and against two really good teams. The way we've been playing, I'm a product of what's in front of me."
"We had a good effort there. Rhino brings a lot of energy, obviously. He made a great play on the first goal - a good forecheck, good stick, and he passed it to me and it was a big goal for our club. We were talking about having a good start, and we were up 2-0 early and I think we carried it on the whole game and had the game under control."
"Guys have done a good job - a really good road trip here for us. But I think more importantly, the guys are getting more and more confidence in our process and how we need to play. You can see the buy-in on the bench - they're playing for each other. These were two well-earned wins for us. Our goaltending continues to be good - both guys gave us good games. And the thing I like about it most is that everybody who was in our lineup in these two games made an impact on the hockey games and had a hand in us winning them."
Monahan, worth noting, is tied with Joe Mullen (388) for the 15th most points in Flames franchise history ... Coyotes forward Kesselwas playing in his 803rd straight game. Quite the impressive Ironman streak ... This Flames improved to .500 against Pacific Division opponents (5-5-1) ...
