The view from Calgary - LA Kings Insider

Calgary Sun

Calgary Flames get past L.A. Kings 2-1 in overtime

“They vowed they’d return home after a five-game road trip and play a road-style game. They promised it would be a post-season performance. The Flames talked about the proverbial four-points up for grabs. This one lived up to the billing.”

Flames physicality a force on display Tuesday

“After a lackluster opening period in which the Kings scored a controversial goal that earned two reviews from the league after a goalmouth scramble saw the puck trickle across the line, the Flames rebounded with the intensity their task required. And Elliott rebounded, as he has so often of late, with a perfect slate from there, stopping 28 shots.”

Calgary Herald

Flames block out trade deadline noise

“Given where they are in the standings – prior to Tuesday’s clash against the Los Angeles Kings, their 33-26-4 record had them situated in the first wild-card position – and the way they’ve been playing, it appears there are no glaring needs for this club.”

Brodie scores in overtime as Flames spoil Bishop’s Kings debut

“The other goal for Calgary (34-26-4) came from red-hot Micheal Ferland. The Flames climb within two points of the Anaheim Ducks for third place in the Pacific Division. They currently hold the first wild card spot in the Western Conference.”

Flames 2, Kings 1 (OT) Post-game Embers: Just as Everyone Predicted

“[Elliott] put up a .966 save percentage on the night, following up the .971 he posted against the Hurricanes. He now has a .901 save percentage this season. It’s not the numbers we were looking forward to to start the year – but lately, Elliott’s been putting them up.”

Flames Win Thriller 2-1 in OT over Kings

“The Kings would then again pepper the Flames over the final half of the period but some excellent goaltending from Elliott kept the game tied, save for a terrifying moment with seconds left where a shot got through him and then hit the back of the shaft of his stick as it was going in and landed just behind him.”
