Numerology: Flames vs. Blues
A statistical look at the Flames 4-3 shootout victory over the Blues
35 Games in which a Flames blueliner has factored into the scoring. There's only been two contests in which a defencman hasn't hit the scoresheet. That is second in the NHL in that category.
18:23 Ice time for Paul Byron. The under-sized forward has impressed, slowly working his way up the ranks and now playing top-6 minutes.
2 Points for Mark Giordano. The captain collected a goal and an assist for his 15th & 16th points in the 18 games he's played this season.
5 Seconds remaining when Mark Giordano tied the game. The Blues were 16-0-2 when leading after two periods prior to the Flames-Blues match.
6 Shots on goal by both Mikael Backlund and Michal Cammalleri. The duo led all skaters in that category.
4 Shootout goals against on Reto Berra this season. The rookie netminder's shootout prowess continues as he has stopped a ridiculous 13 of 17 shooters.
5 Blocked shots for blueliner Chris Butler. The Flames defenceman sits third in the league.
