Five thoughts: Late comeback in Nashville could bode well for Flames

  Five thoughts: Late comeback in Nashville could bode well for Flames The Flames played their best game of 2017-18 on Tuesday night, overcoming a 2-0 deficit to defeat the defending Western Conference-champion Nashville Predators 3-2 in a shootout at Bridgestone Arena. 1. FLAMES PICK UP PENALTY KILLThe Flames lack of discipline early in the season could have (should have) cost them more than it did, but the team’s penalty kill bailed them out time and time again. As a matter of fact, the Flames were a perfect 19-for-19 on the PK on the road – until Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi scored power-play goals on Tuesday night.

Johnny Gaudreau had two assists to give him 15 on the season, which is tied for second in the league behind Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos (18).

Taylor Hall, Ben Lovejoy, Brian Gibbons and Andy Greene scored for New Jersey (9-3-1), which lost consecutive games for the first time. The Devils went 1-1-1 on their road trip through Western Canada.

Ferland broke a 3-3 tie in the third period when he took a slick little pass from Gaudreau and from 20 feet out before zipping a quick shot past Kinkaid at 6:54.

It was the second time Ferland was in alone on the Devils goaltender. Ferland was stopped as he tried a deke to his forehand on a first period penalty shot after he was tripped on a breakaway by Stefan Noesen.

New Jersey tied it 4-4 at 11:11 when Greene scored his first of the season, beating a partially-screened Smith on a long shot inside the post.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Matthew Tkachuk ’s shootout arsenal has yet to fail him so far this season. Tkachuk scored the shootout winner on Sunday night to lead the Calgary Flames over the New Jersey Devils 5-4.

The Devils then got a penalty shot of their own with 6:06 remaining when Woods was hauled down from behind by Matt Bartkowski. But Wood put a backhander high and wide.

Trailing 2-1, Calgary took its first lead halfway through the second on goals 1:16 apart by Monahan and Stone.

Monahan’s team-leading eighth goal came when he zipped a shot inside the goalpost from 10-feet out on a nice centering pass from Ferland.

However, the lead lasted just 10 seconds. Mike Smith’s attempt to fire a pass around the boards was intercepted by Gibbons, who snapped it past the Flames goalie.

Notes: Gaudreau has assisted on all eight of Monahan’s goals… Calgary called up D Rasmus Andersson from AHL Stockton on Sunday and put Travis Hamonic (lower body) on injured reserve, but Andersson did not dress… Calgary RW Jaromir Jagr (lower body) missed his sixth game. He continues to practice with the team and is considered close to returning.
