No. 16: Calgary Flames

Last Week: 28th

Record: 14-13-2 (30 points)

Johnny Gaudreau returned to action three weeks earlier than expected and had a two-point night in his first game back. The Flames are one point ahead of Anaheim for a guaranteed Stanley Cup Playoff spot, and the addition of Gaudreau come push them ahead.
