Flames beat up on the Sharks yet again

4 Comments

For the second time in less than a full week, the Calgary Flames have defeated the San Jose Sharks, a fellow Pacific Division opponent.

On Monday, the Flames, with their dads in the stands watching, jumped out to a first-period lead on a goal from Mason Raymond, his ninth of the season, as he calmly skated into the middle of the ice and snapped a shot that beat Antti Niemi. Calgary went on to defeat the Sharks by a final score of 4-1.

Calgary now jumps back into second in the Pacific, still tied in points with the Sharks. The Canucks lost in Minnesota earlier in the evening and stay at 61 points, which knocks them down to the final Wild Card spot in the conference.

The Flames have dominated the Sharks in San Jose this season.
