Flames Light Up the Blues 7-4

Adjust Comment Print

The Flames meanwhile are 4-1 in their last five home games and will be in tough in this one as they welcome the Blues, but if there is any team who is capable of matching up with St Louis it is Calgary as they have some depth up front and their own point producer in Johnny Gaudreau. Steen has posted just two goals and nine points through 13 games, with both goals and four assists coming in two meetings against the Flames. Matthew Tkachuk had two assists.

The St. Louis Blues look to continue their unbelievable start to the season as they head into Calgary to battle with the Flames who have turned up the heat over the last two weeks.

Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester is not yet ready to play, but he's well enough that he traveled with the team Sunday on their flight to Calga...

Flames goaltender Mike Smith, who has started 16 of Calgary's 17 games this season, had to leave after the first period with an undisclosed injury.

Bennett was rewarded for his hard work early in the third period when he battled hard to get to the front of the net to backhand a shot through Allen's legs.

Eddie Lack played the final 40 minutes, stopping 13 of 15 shots for his first win as a Flame.

St. Louis opened the scoring at 3:32 on its first shot. But 12 seconds later, Tarasenko one-timed a Schwartz pass to tie it again. Jankowski then took a slick pass from Jaromir Jagr and scored on deke at 13:45.

Allen, who faced 36 shots, took the loss. Tarasenko moved onto a line with Steen and Paul Stastny. The Blues scratched D Nate Prosser and LW Magnus Paajarvi.
