“We want eight”
Darryl Sutter wisely decided to rest Markstrom after the game was blown open by power play goals. The Flames seemed to have a little jump to start the period, crashing Demko’s crease for a disallowed goal. I suppose the saying goes, if you can’t beat them, you jump on them?
Demko continued to look sharp, even sharing a few smiles and laughs with teammates.
Conor Garland scored the sixth Canucks goal after Tanner Pearson’s pass perfectly landed on the tape of his stick. It looked like Vladar made the save but he didn’t get enough.
Things finally looked to slow down after the Flames were awarded their first power play of the game, just for Pettersson to score Vancouver’s third short-handed goal of the year. Why not for extra measure?
By the fifth and sixth power play, Boudreau was throwing out his fourth line. Even the celebrities, Michael Buble and Chase Claypool got right at home with it, although Claypool may have gotten a little too close.
In the final three minutes of the game, Andrew Mangiapane would sneak one of Calgary’s 30 past the sliding glove of Demko to prevent a shutout. But, it didn’t stop him from getting the WWE Championship belt, so all’s well that ends well.
