It’s been 11 years since the Flames have won a game in Anaheim.
Tonight’s start won’t do much to help snap that streak.
After losing Game 1 at the Honda Center on Thursday night, the Flames fell behind quickly in Game 2 thanks to goals from Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell, both scored in the opening seven minutes of action.
Silfverberg’s marker, as seen above, came at the 3:21 mark on helpers from young d-men Brandon Montour and Shea Theodore. It was Theodore’s third assist of the series.
Just over two minutes later, Anaheim was at it again.
Rakell beat Calgary netminder Brian Elliott, thanks to assists from Ryan Getzlaf and Kevin Bieksa. It was Rickard’s second goal in as many games (and the second helper in as many for Getzlaf and Bieksa).
Clearly, this wasn’t the start Calgary was looking for as they look to finally get a victory in Orange County. If there’s a silver lining, it’s that there’s still plenty of action left.
