The Flames had a couple of games this week -- a pair of wins, may we add -- but it wasn't just their on-ice performance that was making waves in Calgary. In the first edition of Social Buzz, we recap a busy week on and off the ice.
Today, the Calgary Stampeders are headed to Edmonton to take on Eskimos in the CFL's Western Final! The Flames are behind the boys 100 percent and sent out a good luck message ... while trying to channel their brothers from McMahon. Next time, we'll leave the kick-off chant to the Stamps!
On Saturday, the Flames held their annual Red Rally event -- a chance for fans to meet their hockey heros, get autographs, listen to panel discussions, play games on the concourse, and more! This year's event was held at the Saddledome and drew in tons of fans, young and old!
The Red Rally also included the chance for fans to listen in on a Flames practice! Bob Hartley was mic'd up during a lengthy skate that featured two shootouts and a 3-on-3 game! Brandon Bollig stole the show in the shootout, showing off his moves to the crowd's delight.
And it wasn't just Bollig turning heads - assistant coach Jacques Cloutier was selected by his group, Team White, to take the deciding shot in one of the shootouts. He closed the deal.
On Friday, the Flames were looking to avenge last Sunday's loss in Chicago and thanks to Johnny Gaudreau's wizardry, they handed the reigning Stanley Cup Champions a 2-1 overtime loss at the 'Dome.
Johnny's magnificent goal was the talk all over social media, for good reason.
Yeah, that's Brent Seabrook that Johnny strips the puck off of. That was just one of many amazing plays the 22-year-old was a part of in a huge victory over the Blackhawks.
