As of now, the Calgary Flames are scheduled to play the Seattle Kraken on Thursday night in Seattle, the first time the two franchises have ever played each other.
A few weeks back, our pal Seth Rorabaugh (of Tribune-Review Sports in Pittsburgh) broke down the first goal the Penguins have scored against each and every NHL franchise.
It sounded fun, so we did the same thing! Our rules: it’s the entire Flames franchise’s history, so Atlanta counts, but we broke out teams before and after relocations if they changed their names.
