The Calgary Flames beat the Carolina Hurricanes by a 4-3 score on Sunday afternoon. Here are selected reactions from players and coaches following the game.
A big game for Derek Ryan
The Flames managed to overcome the Hurricanes for the second time in a two week span, winning a tight-checking game. In a game that saw zero even strength goals from the Flames’ vaunted top six, fourth line center Derek Ryan – a former Hurricane – was the improbable hero.
Flames head coach Bill Peters had praise for his long-time player.
“He’s had a lot of good games in this building and today was another one of them,” said Peters.
