A 3-1 scoreline isn’t really worth getting excited about, but the Flames felt like a more complete, more rounded team in their win against the Flyers. Considering how rough the early season has been, we’ll take it.
Feel of the game
Certainly not their most exciting game, and definitely not their cleanest, but the Flames bucked the early trend of this season and actually showed up to play. They seemingly took the lessons of their road trip to heart, finding the scoresheet early and keeping the pressure on, though they weren’t as opportunistic with their chances.
