The Calgary Flames headed on the road on Monday night, heading to Chicago to face the Blackhawks in the second-last COVID postponement make-up game on their calendar. The Flames got an early lead and then hung on, beating Chicago by a 5-2 score.
The recap is here, if you missed it. Here are selected highlights and post-game comments from Monday night.
Head coach Darryl Sutter
On the win: “Played good… It’s a hard game to play. Clinched a playoff spot two nights ago, travelled all day yesterday. It’s a hard game to play. It’s a game where the kids on the other sides are going to come out and try to show their worth, and they did.”
On Jacob Markstrom’s performance: “Made more big saves than one bad save, that’s for sure. He made a lot of big saves. 88 and 12 were hopping out there for the other team.”
On the performance of the line of Dillon Dube, Calle Jarnkrok and Blake Coleman: “They give us some energy and they’re persistent players. I think it’s good for Dillon to play with Blake right now. I think he’s got lots of cleaning up to do in his game.”
On how the game unfolded: “I thought we had a good first period, obviously. Quick couple goals there. I think we could’ve had a few more. I think their goalie played pretty well there in the first, helped them stick around a little bit. And then in the second, kind of let our foot off the gas and in the third they kind of pushed us back a little bit. But we stuck with it and got the win.”
