COLUMBUS - A day after their jaw-dropping comeback overtime win in Nashville, the Flames were back to work on Friday afternoon.
Given their hectic schedule this month and being in the midst of a season-long road swing, practice time has been limited so the coaching staff put the group through a lengthy session at Nationwide Arena.
"We haven't practiced in what seems like a long time so we were able to teach and clarify some things," head coach Bill Peters said. "That was important.
"We've played a lot of games. I don't know where we're at, next to the rest of the league, but I think we've played 15 times and haven't had a lot of practice time. We've been in the air a lot, been in some different situations, so when we get a chance to practice that a) we're executing but b) we're teaching."
Check out Friday's lines and pairings:
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Sam Bennett
Milan Lucic - Mark Jankowski - Alan Quine
Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson
