Secondary scoring needed on the power play

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames
CALGARY, AB -- While the Calgary Flames power play continues to make strides, their second unit will need to ramp up its production due to the absence of winger Curtis Glencross.

Glencross currently leads the Flames in power play goals with six but he is currently sidelined with a lower body injury he sustained on Jan. 17 in a game against the San Jose Sharks.

Trailing the winger is Olli Jokinen and Jarome Iginla, who have five and four power play markers respectively. After that, it drops to Mark Giordano and Mikael Backlund on the scoring list. They each have two goals during the man advantage.

The Flames currently sit 18th overall in the League when it comes to the power play but have an incredibly strong road record. In 28 games away from the Scotiabank Saddledome, they have drawn 80 penalties and have connected 18 times while on the power play. That equates to a 22.5 percent success rate - bested only by Chicago, Boston, the New York Islanders, Vancouver, and Colorado.

Calgary has had trouble at home but there have been signs of improvement during the month of January. They've scored power play goals in three of five games at the Saddledome.
