Flames Post-Game: Flames skewer Sabres

The Calgary Flames came into Buffalo hoping to find consistency, puck possession, and a win. They found all three of those things in a very one-sided 5-0 victory over the Sabres on Thursday night.

The win gives the Flames a 2-1-2 record through the first five games of their seven game road trip.

The rundown

The Flames got oodles of good scoring chances in the opening period, but they opened the scoring off a gorgeous pass by Matthew Tkachuk to spring Johnny Gaudreau on an almost-breakaway. Gaudreau received the pass and held off the defender long enough to beat Dustin Tokarski with a quick shot to give the Flames a 1-0 lead.
