NHL: Red hot Flames all buying in

Centreman Elias Lindholm says everyone is buying in after his two goals helped the Calgary Flames to a 6-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks and an eighth win in a row.

The Flames, 13/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, have won 10 of their last 11 games outscoring their opponents 37-13 during the streak. 

Winning streak grows

Calgary's winning streak, a current league-best, is their longest since a 10-game run during the 2016/17 season.

27-year-old Lindholm has points in each of his last eight games (seven goals, six assists) taking his season total to 46 points (21 goals, 25 assists). He ranks third on the Flames in all three categories.

With a 28-16-6 record, Calgary lead the Pacific Division sitting three points ahead the Vegas Golden Knights with two games in hand.

New additions in Calgary

The Flames bolstered their line-up earlier this week, trading for forward Tyler Toffoli from the Montreal Canadiens. The 29-year-old scored on his debut in a 6-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

In 39 games this season, Toffoli has 27 points (ten goals, 17 assists).

Against the Ducks, Calgary recorded more than 40 shots for the 15th time this season and enjoyed 26 saves from netminder Jacob Markstrom who recorded a 21st win in 37 starts this season. His .927 save-percentage ranks fourth in the NHL.

Lindholm said to the media: "We just play, follow the system, and everyone's buying in. We just do the same things over and over again and eventually, the teams are wearing out and we take over the games."
