Season Record:  16-13-2

Don’t look now, but Calgary has won six games in a row.  They’re on a roll, and now sit in third place in the Pacific Division.  They’re led by Johnny Gaudreau, better known as Johnny Hockey.  Even after missing 10 games with a fractured finger, he still leads the team with 19 points.  The Flames next take on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
