Social Buzz: On the road again

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

RALEIGH, NC -- The Calgary Flames are currently in North Carolina, taking on the Hurricanes later today ... a stay that has been impacted greatly by the storm hitting the east coast.

A state of emergency was declared on Friday but the boys remained in good spirits despite most businesses being closed for most of their stay in North Carolina ...

Now, as we wait for the Flames-Hurricanes game to get underway at PNC Arena, let's take a look back on the week from a social media perspective.


First stop: Newark.

The Flames flew into New Jersey on Monday, preparing to take on the Devils on Tuesday.

As per usual, the #CofRed was out at Prudential Center, cheering on the boys!

The Devils opened the scoring but Sean Monahan was able to get one back before the first period came to an end.

The Devils struck twice in the second period before handing the Flames a 5-on-3 power play. Calgary made no mistake on it, with Kris Russell drawing his team within a goal at 15:55 of the middle frame.

Johnny Gaudreau picked up his second assist of the night on Russell's goal with a great backhand pass.

An empty-net goal sunk Calgary's hopes of completing the comeback and the Flames fell 4-2 in Newark.


Looking to get back on track, the Flames flew in Columbus to take on the Blue Jackets on Thursday. Once again, the #CofRed was in the house!

The Flames got things started late in the first when #67 was able to get a shot past Sergei Bobrovsky.

Scott Hartnell tied things up in the second but that didn't last long ...

The Jackets once again tied it late in the second period but the third period? All Flames.


Thursday was also National Hug Day ... an excellent day to rattle off some goals!

Flames fans chipped in with their own contributions as well!

Last Sunday, the Flames had a special guest at practice ...

Haylen donates all the profits from his hot chocolate and ice cream stand to the Ronald McDonald House. Katie and Matt Stajan found out this young philanthropist and wanted to help him raise more money! He sold hot chocolate to every player at practice!
