CALGARY, AB -- The Adirondack Flames set out on a five-game road trip on Nov. 7, searching for their first road win of the 2014-15 season.
They returned to Glens Falls on Saturday night with a five-game winning streak in hand and sitting in second in the AHL's North Division.
One of reasons that Adirondack has been able to surge up the standings this month is having a multitude of players contribute offensively. With several forwards up in Calgary, the team is scoring by committee -- much like its parent club -- and it has paid dividends.
Bill Arnold is one of the skaters who have stepped up to the plate. The centreman has found his groove, helping generate offence while providing a steady presence in the defensive zone.
Arnold, who has strung together a four-game point streak, scored four goals in Adirondack's three outings last week and now sits second in scoring amongst all current Flames' skaters.
Last Monday, the Boston, MA product netted two goals, including the game-winner, in a 4-3 win over the Rochester Americans and was named the first star.
On Friday, Arnold was able to even things up against the Lake Erie Monsters in the second period and the Flames went on to pick up a 4-2 win.
He finished off the week by sending the Flames to extra time on Saturday with a third period marker against the Monsters. Adirondack went on to win the game in the shootout.
The Flames drafted Arnold in the fourth round (108th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft. He spent four years at Boston College before signing with Calgary on Apr. 11. He made his NHL debut with fellow Boston College alumnus Johnny Gaudreau on Apr. 13 in Vancouver.
