This summer, you could forgive Peter Budaj and Devin Setoguchi for worrying that they’d never accomplish anything of significance in the NHL again.

On Saturday, they factored into the Los Angeles Kings’ 5-0 drubbing of the Calgary Flames.

Budaj is now 6-3-0 and nabbed the 12th shutout of his NHL career (plus his first since 2013).

Setoguchi’s battle with addiction probably makes his ascent even more heartwarming. He scored two goals on Saturday, finding the net at this level for the first time since 2014.

Hey, even Dustin Brown seemed like he came out of a time machine with two assists tonight.

All and all, it’s some pretty inspiring stuff … unless you play or cheer for the Flames.
