BACK TO THE SCENE

Coach Sutter talks about returning to Los Angeles - where he won two cups - and the continuing evolution of this Flames team

by RYAN DITTRICK @typilson / CalgaryFlames.com

LOS ANGELES - So little has changed.

From the arrival at LAX, to the vibe of LA Live - from the freeway to Figueroa St., the blinding lights and all.

Nothing compares to the energy of this place.

Or the memories that were made here.

"I'm pretty much a middle-of-the-road, neutral guy," cautioned Head Coach Darryl Sutter. "I don't get too high or too low.

CAVENDISH FARMS REPORT - 30.11.21

Pelletier adjusting to life as a pro like, well, a pro! Forward off to stellar start, helping power surging Heat

by BRANDON WEISS @WeissBrandon1 / CalgaryFlames.com

It doesn't matter whether you asked for it or want it, like it or tolerate it - all the spotlight does is shine.

And when the lights are the brightest and eyes are on top-tier prospects like Stockton's Jakob Pelletier, the rest is up to them. 

The surface-level stats are gaudy for the Quebec native: a team-best 17 points, fourth place in scoring among all AHL rookies and tops among newcomers in the Western Conference, and a league-leading four game-winning goals.

SAY WHAT: 'THE POWER FIVE'

The buzz around the rink following a shootout victory over the Penguins

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

MIKAEL BACKLUND ON SCORING SHOOTOUT WINNER:

"I just checked a little bit before where (Jarry) had been letting goals. I tried that move in practice and scored on Marky. I figured if I could score on Marky, I can score on this guy, too.

"You're always ready to get the call to go. Not that I'm expecting it with my record - 0-for-7 before today - to get picked. But when I heard my name, I got excited. Tried working on it in practice and tried tod the same thing."

SAY WHAT: 'NEED A WIN TONIGHT'

The buzz around the rink as the Flames get set to host the Pens

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

ASSOCIATE COACH KIRK MULLER ON TONIGHT'S GAME:

"The important thing is playing well at home. We've had a lot of games on the road this year and have been successful for the most part. But that doesn't mean anything if you come home and lose points at home. I think it's important that we get back to playing our game that we got away from last game against Winnipeg. But it's about establishing a good home record here and trying to be consistent on our game and playing the same way we do here as we do on the road."
