Social Buzz: Hockey Day

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames


Saturday was the 16th edition of Hockey Day in Canada, an annual celebration which sees all seven Canadian NHL teams play and the country celebrate our great sport.

The Flames, who were featured in Saturday's finale match-up with the Canucks, now hold a 8-5-1-1-1 record on Hockey Day thanks to their 4-1 victory in Vancouver.

But before the puck dropped on Saturday morning, all of the Canadian teams put their rivalries aside to pay tribute to our country.

In Vancouver, the Flames and Canucks gave fans a thrilling finish to #HockeyDay with a tightly contested match-up at Rogers Arena.

After a scoreless first period, the Flames gained a 1-0 lead when Michael Frolik was able to convert on an incredible pass from TJ Brodie.

It remained a one-goal game thanks to a strong game from Jonas Hiller, denying the Canucks on multiple scoring opportunities. But late in the third period, the flood gates opened. Sean Monahan, Mikael Backlund, and Sam Bennett scored for the Flames while the Canucks' Emerson Etem was able to finally get one past Hiller in the late stages of the game.

What a great #HockeyDay ending for Flames fans.


Last Thursday, we asked fans to share their Flames-related Throwback Thursday moments for a chance to win a signed Mike Vernon jersey and we were flooded with photos!
