Ice Chips: 20.10.14

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

- Head coach Bob Hartley is 13 games away from the 800 mark. TJ Brodie is eight games from the 200 mark.

- Brodie has points in six straight games, a career-high for the defenceman.

- Josh Jooris became the fifth player on the Flames roster to score his first NHL goal in his first NHL game. He scored against Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky on Oct. 17. He joins Johnny Gaudreau, Curtis Glencross, Devin Setoguchi, and Matt Stajan in that club.

- Jiri Hudler needs one point for 300.

- Kris Russell needs four assists for 100.

- Russell is second in the NHL in blocked shots with 24 through seven games.

- Glencross' 21 hits through seven games ranks him ninth in the NHL.

- Calgary’s 2-1 OT win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 15 saw the Flames outshot 50-18. That 32-shot differential is the biggest deficiency in a victory in franchise history.

- Jonas Hiller's performance in Chicago was historic in another aspect as well. 47 of his 49 saves came in regulation, which marks the first time since 1999 that a Flames goalie has made 46 saves in regulation time. Hiller also becomes just the third goaltender in Calgary's history to allow one or fewer goals when faced with 50+ shots.

- The Flames split their two-game season series against the Lightning last night season, falling 2-0 in Calgary on Jan. 3, 2014 and picking up a 4-1 win in Tampa Bay on Apr. 3, 2014. They face off against the Bolts tomorrow night at 7:00 PM MT (Sportsnet Flames, Sportsnet 960 The FAN).

- The Flames all-time record against Tampa Bay is 13-11-1-3. At home, their all-time record is 7-6-0-1.

- Glencross led the Flames in scoring against the Lightning last year, potting two goals in one game.

- Dennis Wideman is the Flames leading scorer against Tampa Bay with two goals and 15 points through 24 career games.

- Matt Stajan leads all Flames skaters in goals scored against the Lightning with seven in 27 outings.

- Karri Ramo got his start in the NHL with the Bolts. He was drafted by Tampa Bay in the sixth round of the 2004 NHL Draft and ended up playing 48 games in Lightning silks before heading to KHL in the 2009-10 season.

- Ramo played in both games against the Bolts in 2013-14, posting a 1.50 GAA and a .951 save percentage. He made 58 saves on 61 shots.
