LAST GO WITH THE LIGHTNING
Tonight's game is the final skate in the Flames-Lightning 2016-17 season series. The Bolts picked up a win in Calgary on Dec. 14, topping the Flames 6-3. Troy Brouwer, TJ Brodie and Micheal Ferland found the back of the net in the setback. In their 2015-16 series, the Flames and Lightning picked up 3-1 victories on home ice.
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS VS. TAMPA BAY
As a member of the Washington Capitals, Brouwer netted his first NHL hat trick against the Lightning on Jan. 13, 2012.
Brian Elliott posted his first NHL shutout against Tampa Bay on Mar. 29, 2009, as a member of the Ottawa Senators.
Deryk Engelland, as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, scored his first NHL goal against Tampa Bay on Nov. 12, 2010.
On Tuesday, seven skaters had multi-point outings in the 6-5 overtime win over the Nashville Predators: Mikael Backlund, Micheal Ferland, Johnny Gaudreau, Mark Giordano, Dougie Hamilton, Sean Monahan, and Matthew Tkachuk. Gaudreau set a new career-high with four assists while Monahan equaled a career-high three helpers in the victory.
Giordano has scored in the final minute or in overtime in the last three games. The Flames' captain now has nine goals on the year, one shy of hitting the 10+ mark for the fourth consecutive season of his career.
PRIDE NIGHT IN TAMPA
The Bolts are hosting Pride Night, in support of You Can Play and local LBGTQ charities. The Flames will join the Lightning in using Pride Tape on their sticks during warm-ups, as they did in Pittsburgh earlier this month during the Penguins You Can Play Night.
The Flames' You Can Play Night is on Feb. 28 when the LA Kings make a stop at the 'Dome. Matt Stajan is serving as the team's You Can Play ambassador.
