Calgary Flames Plagued By Injuries During Playoffs

Usually the cry of “yeah, it’s the playoffs....everyone is injured” is a real gripe as the grind of the regular seasons blends into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Everyone is banged up and bruised, but it’s playoff time and everyone sucks it up. The NHL shutdown allowed all players (that could) the chance to heal up and be ready for the start of the post season. The Flames were no exception, as they healed those who could, but as the games progressed, Calgary had some players suffer some injuries that affected their play.

Today we found out that Matthew Tkachuk, Rasmus Andersson and Sam Bennett all lost playoff time to injury or played through things that could have hampered their play.
