The Calgary Flames hit the road on Monday, heading on out a three-game road trip that would see them stop in Anaheim, Glendale, and San Jose. CalgaryFlames.com was there to chronicle the journey and bring you updates on social media!
First stop: Anaheim. The Flames jumped out to a lead and received some stellar saves from Karri Ramo but fell 5-3 to the Ducks.
As per usual, there were plenty of Flames fans in the crowd, cheering on their team.
Second stop: Glendale. The Flames had three days in the desert, starting with a day off on Wednesday. On Thursday, they were back to work preparing for Friday night's tilt. However, prior to practice getting underway at Gila River Arena, the Flames made some roster moves. Joni Ortio was assigned to the Stockton Heat and Markus Granlund was summoned from the AHL.
Given it was American Thanksgiving on Thursday, the team enjoyed a turkey dinner together.
On Friday, the Flames played a strong game against the Arizona Coyotes but couldn't get much past Mike Smith. Ultimately, they fell 2-1 in overtime.
After Friday's defeat, it was a quick turnaround. The Flames played on Saturday in San Jose so they hustled out of Arizona and flew to Northern California for their final stop on their road swing.
Jonas Hiller was cleared to play earlier in the week and he got the nod in San Jose.
The game didn't get started the way the Flames wanted it to, falling behind 2-0 after 20:00 and 4-0 after 40:00. They tried to mount a comeback in the final frame, netting two goals off the sticks of Markus Granlund and Micheal Ferland, but it was too late. They closed out the trip with a 5-2 loss.
The Flames get back at it at home this week, hosting the Dallas Stars on Tuesday and the Boston Bruins on Friday.
