November, to put it mildly, was a challenge for the Calgary Flames. On-ice struggles and off-ice scandals plagued the team, overshadowing what could easily have been the defining moment of the Flames’ season. On Halloween night, Matthew Tkachuk cemented an epic comeback against the Nashville Predators with a between-the-legs, from-one-knee, buzzer-beating showstopper.
The Calgary Flames have added to their coaching staff. The club announced they have named Ray Edwards, formerly their director of player development, as their newest assistant coach.
The Calgary Hitmen played three games in three days over the past week. They captured three of a possible six points and stayed firmly in the thick of the Western Hockey League playoff race. Oh, and over 25,000 teddy bears were hurled towards the ice on Sunday.
The Calgary Flames played arguably their best game of the season on Thursday against the Buffalo Sabres. Part of the credit has to go to interim coach Geoff Ward, who shuffled lines heading into the game and then shuffled again mid-game.
