TREMENDOUS TWO MONTHS
Calgary suffered back-to-back losses in Washington and Nashville so far this road trip, but the club has still won 12 of their past 15 games. The Flames are 17-4-1 since Jan. 26. Johnny Gaudreau has led the club with 25 points and 19 assists in those 23 games.
A big part of the Flames excellent play over the past months has been captain Mark Giordano as he has 12 points (6G, 6A) and an NHL best +19 rating since Jan 26. The 33-year-old defenceman seems eager to make his return to the NHL playoffs (having not skated in a postseason game since 2006-07) as he has scored or assisted on Calgary's game-winning goal 12 times (4G, 8A).
