The Calgary Flames sure looked like the often-magical 2014-15 version on Friday.
It looked like the Detroit Red Wings might get be able to adhere to a 2-1 lead stemming from the first period, yet the Flames kept hammering away until the point of no return.
Yep, that sure looks like the Flames from last season: Plenty of points for Giordano, Gaudreau, Monahan and Jiri Hudler … and they needed every bit of it.
Granted, there are some differences. Lady Byng winner Hudler got in a fight. That Dougie Hamilton kid is still getting things together, too.
Calgary likely wants to step forward from last season considering its off-season moves, but considering the way things started (not well), it’s OK to take a nostalgic trip.
