SCOTIABANK FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT
Tonight is the Flames' annual Fan Appreciation Night, presented by Scotiabank. As a part of tonight's festivities, Harvey and members of our promotional team will be throwing out LED light balls ahead of puck drop, which will have their own unique number inside. That number corresponds with a prize, which can be picked up at Scotiabank's table near section 227 on the concourse. Make sure you're in your seat pre-game for a chance to get one of the LED prize balls.
Flames alumni Curtis Glencross and Rhett Warrener will be signing autographs from 6:15 - 7:15 p.m. on the concourse, with their table also located near section 227 on the concourse.
The Flames went 10-4-0 last month and were led offensively by Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau. Monahan posted seven goals and 18 points in March while Gaudreau registered five goals and 17 points last month.
Gaudreau enters the month on a seven-game point streak thanks to his goal in the Flames' 5-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday. He now has 60 points on the year and is just the fourth player in franchise history to have at least 60 points in each of their first three NHL seasons. Only Tom Lysiak, Joe Nieuwendyk and Sergei Makarov did so before Gaudreau.
ELLIOTT'S MILESTONE MONTH
Brian Elliott was named the first star in Friday's win after posting 36 saves in the 5-2 victory. That win was his 10th in March, tying him with Mike Vernon for the franchise record for wins in a calendar month. Elliott went 10-2-0 with a 1.97 GAA and a .936 save percentage last month.
