In case you missed it, Halloween was yesterday (or all weekend, depending on how you typically celebrate).
After exiting Saturday with a sixth consecutive win, many members of the Calgary Flames spent Sunday in a similarly cheery mood — albeit while wearing different costumes than their jerseys.
Many Flames players, often alongside their significant others and children, shared pictures of their Halloween get-ups on social media. Here’s a look at the five best costumes the Flames had to offer this past October 31.
5. Andrew Mangiapane
Honestly, we’re not too sure what’s going on here. Is Mangiapane dressed as an orange? A pumpkin pie? It’s hard to tell from the video, which appears to have been recorded at a Flames team Halloween party. If you know what his costume is supposed to be, please let us know in the comments.
Anyway, get you a friend who dances with you like Mikael Backlund dances with Andrew Mangiapane. Hey, speaking of Backlund…
4. The Backlunds
Angels love their Under Armour. Everybody knows this.
3. The Colemans
@Blake Coleman might beat Sidney Crosby and Martin St. Louis in a “best hockey thighs” contest. Also, he needs to start wearing that hat to the rink on game days.
(“Coleman” is the name of a brand of outdoor recreation products, by the way.)
2. The Välimäkis
Just call him “Gruuso.”
1. The Vladars
Has an NHL goalie ever worn a Darth Vader-inspired mask during a game? If not, Dan Vladar should absolutely be the one to start the trend.
Extra points for the Yodog.
The Flames will return to action — hopefully without being weighed down by too much Halloween candy — on Nov. 2, when they welcome the Nashville Predators to the Scotiabank Saddledome.
