Calgary Flames. 15. team. 112. Last time I did this Power Rankings article a few months ago, the Flames ranked as one of the worst teams in the league. Now they’re in the top 15. Getting healthy had a lot to do with out. Mikael Backlund currently leads the team in scoring but not by much. Johnny Gaudreau trails by one point with 28 and he’s missed ten games from a wrist injury. The top six of Calgary that features Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan has been extremely productive. Throw in ex-Blackhawk Michael Frolik who has 25 points on the year and it looks like you have a team that’s rolling four lines. That’s usually a recipe for playoff success in this league.. .
