Chris Butler is third in the NHL with 146 blocks in 56 games.

Butler has led the charge in one of the few areas of the game that the Flames have excelled at. As a team they rank second in the NHL with 974 blocks this season. "We feel that shot-blocking is a big part of a game, and it starts with your desire to win," Hartley said. "You have the choice, and it's an ultimate commitment to get your leg or get your body in front of a shot that many times is probably close to 100 miles an hour. Don't worry, on the bench, when a guy blocks a shot, his teammates are the first ones to remind him of how great he is and we tap them on the back, too."
