Blues at Flames Stats
Looking at the Blues stats
The Blues played a solid hockey game last night against a tough Vancouver team. The first period saw the Canucks have three different power-play opportunities but only score a single goal right as time was over. The Blues look to also be getting healthy as they are down to just one player on their injured reserve list.
Jordan Kyrou, leading in total points for the Blues, was able to score another goal last night, making it a point in nine of his last ten games. Vladimir Tarasenko had two assists to go to nine games in a row that he has played in with a point.
Brayden Schenn was able to score a goal last night against the Cancuks, which was the last team Schenn needed a goal against to become the only Blues player to have scored against all the other NHL teams including Seattle.
Looking at the Flames stats
There is no secret it has been a rough go for the Flames. They seem to be close to putting something together, and then they go on a rough streak of games like they are currently on.
Since returning from the COVID break, the Flames are 3-5 and are averaging 3.2 goals per game. The Flames Injury Report also looks a lot more cleaned up as they are down to just one player, non-COVID related.
Leading the offense for the Flames is the veteran Johnny Gaudreau, with 44 points, scoring 15 goals and assisting on 29 others. Gaudreau added an assist Saturday night to make it eight of his last ten games with at least a single point.
Matthew Tkachuk is also playing well for the Flames with points in eight of his last ten as well. If the offense can get things trending in the right direction and stay consistent, the Flames may be able to climb out of this fifth place hole.
