No. 17: Calgary Flames

Previous: No. 18

Record:  25-24-3 (53 points)

Johnny Gaudreau, Johnny Gaudreau.  Do they have much else?  Well, actually they do.  Gaudreau is fourth in points on the team.  Even so, the Flames find themselves pretty much right smack-dab in the middle of the league standings at No.  17.  They’ve won about the same amount of games as they’ve lost, leaving them wallowing in mediocrity.  They are currently the second wild card team in the Western Conference, behind the St. Louis Blues.  Both teams have 53 points, but the Blues have three games in hand.
