Game Report: Flames vs Canes (Jan 14)

The CNNC sports correspondent reports on Sunday’s game, where the Flames were on a roll!

The Flames beat the Hurricanes 4-1. Right now the Flames are going so well, they are rolling to easy victories even without their top scorer Sean Monahan, who was out with the flu. Dougie Hamilton scored twice and Mike Smith made 38 saves extending the Flames winning streak to seven straight games. Matt Stajan and Matthew Tkachuk had a goal each and Johnny Gaudreau had two assists. Calgary controlled the entire game. Scott Darling made 26 saves for Carolina, which has lost four of five. Lee Stempniak scored with 4:31 remaining to avoid a shutout.

”We’re feeling good right now, obviously,” Hamilton said. ”We’re doing the little things consistent and we haven’t really had a terrible stretch of hockey yet.”

”I didn’t think we were engaged in the game, period,” Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. ”I didn’t think we skated, I didn’t think we had much emotional engagement to the game. I thought we looked lethargic. We were slow.”

Flames captain Mark Giordano received a match penalty early in the third period for an illegal check to the face of Sebastian Aho and was ejected. Peters said he didn’t have an update on Aho’s status after the game.
