In a compacted schedule with 30, soon to be 31 teams, a lot goes on in the National Hockey League with very few eyes to actually take in what every team is doing.
Teams get hot, teams sputter but to most hockey fans the streaks are just blurbs and box scores as few people take in every move of every team. So with the Flames on a five game win streak and suddenly one of the hottest teams in the National Hockey League, a Hockey Night in Canada matchup against another Canadian club was an excellent chance for the team to put on a show in front of a larger audience than usually takes in a Calgary Flames game.
The team didn’t waste the opportunity piling up four second period goals to forge in front 4-0 and eventually beat the Winnipeg Jets by a score of 6-2 on Saturday Night.
With six wins in a row the team is now in first place in the Pacific Division if you ignore games in hand, a remarkable turnaround for a team written off by Remembrance Day.
