With their 10th straight victory on Monday, Calgary has tied their franchise record.
The Flames' last 10-game winning streak happened during the 1978-79 campaign when the team was still in Atlanta. This current hot streak has not only basically guaranteed Calgary a playoff berth, but also vastly improved the squad's seeding situation as the Flames have gone from a Wild Card competitor to the current holder of the Pacific Division's second seed. If the playoffs started today, the Flames would have the home ice advantage against Anaheim. Mar 14 - 8:22 AM

With their 5-0 victory over Montreal on Thursday, the Flames have tied their record for the longest winning streak in franchise history since moving to Calgary.

The Flames have won their last eight games, which is a feat they've accomplished in 1988-89, 1992-93, and 2005-06. The question now is if they can become the first Calgary Flames squad to extend that streak to nine games. They'll get that chance on Saturday against Winnipeg.

The Flames are just one win away from matching their record for the longest winning streak since the team moved to Calgary.

A victory against Montreal on Thursday would give the Flames eight in a row. "That would be special," said Kris Versteeg of the record. "It’s always special to be a part of those teams and a part of history. But before you get there, you always have to put the work in. It’s exciting that you put yourselves in that situation, but now it’s just about going out and playing another game." This streak has gone a long way towards cementing the Flames' playoff spot. They currently have a eight-point cushion in the postseason berth race.

Calgary has a 15-19-3 record in games where the opposition scores first, which makes the Flames one of the best teams in the league in that scenario.

Calgary has more wins after surrendering the first goal than any other team in the league and the Flames' .405 winning percentage in 0-1 starts ranks seventh in the NHL. It shows that the Flames have been able to battle back from deficits all season, but as Flames coach Glen Gulutzan noted, they also have to tighten up in the first period.

Heading into Sunday's game, the Calgary Flames had scored 30 goals in their last 100 chances.

That was the best in the NHL and their good fortune continued on Sunday as Dougie Hamilton scored with the man-advantage, the Flames only opportunity of the afternoon. They have 39 power play goals on the season which is tied for third best in the league, behind only Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh.

With a victory on Tuesday, Calgary has swept its season series against Minnesota.

There's no question the Wild have been the better team so far this season, but the Flames are one team that seem to have them figured out. The timing of the win was key for the Flames too as it allowed the Flames to start the post-All-Star break off right after limping into the event with a 2-5-3 record in their last 10 games. Calgary now has 55 points in 53 games, which is good enough to hold onto a Wild Card spot for now.

Flames GM Brad Treliving isn't happy with what he sees as a lack of effort from Calgary over its current four-game losing streak.

"It’s not a system or structure thing – it’s a sweat thing. It’s an emotion thing. It’s a push-through thing," Treliving said. "We’ve got to get to a point where the players say, ‘enough is enough’ and have the will and pushback to stop it. This group has shown this year it’s capable of playing at a certain level, but it starts with the right attitude. We have to get our minds and attitude right that (Thursday) night (in Ottawa) this stops. There’s no magic formula. You don’t click your heels and get 20 new players." The Flames have slipped out of their playoffs spot due to their recent skid, though obviously there's more than enough time remaining in the season to get it back. The silver lining is that even if the Flames can't end their losing streak on Thursday then they'll get a chance to start fresh after the All-Star break.

The Calgary Flames have surrendered the first goal in each of their last eight games.

That trend obviously continued in Monday's 4-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. "I didn’t think we had trouble getting out of the gate, we just didn’t get the first goal," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan. "We had some good looks. We’ve got it here that we out-chanced them. They scored on their opportunities, and we didn’t score on ours. What we need to do is just stop squeezing and capitalize and just start playing. But I didn’t think that we were overwhelmed or out-played or put out in the first period. I thought we started well. They got a bounce toward the end of the first period." Regardless, Calgary is 2-5-1 over its last eight games, which has put the Flames in danger of losing their playoff spot.

The Calgary Flames have scored power play goals in seven straight games.

The Flames only scored once Friday but it was Sean Monahan on the power play to keep the streak alive. The Flames are up to 17th in the NHL in power play efficiency with a 17.0 percent as they have scored 18 times in 106 chances.

The Calgary Flames continued to be the worst team in the NHL with the man-advantage as they failed to score Monday in two chances.

The Flames have gone four games without a goal on the pp and are now six-for-71, a horrible 8.4 percent clip. The Flames need to be a lot better than that if they hope to compete for a playoff spot this season.

The Calgary Flames are currently the worst team in the NHL with a 5-10-1 mark.

The Flames lost their fourth in a row Saturday, dropping a 4-1 decision to the Rangers at home and things do not get a lot better as seven of their next nine games are on the road. "We’re fragile right now ... it’s deflating," head coach Glen Gulutzan said. "It’s hard to find positives in these times, especially at home when we’re losing like this. We have to keep trying to move our game forward."

The Calgary Flames are only 1-25 on the power play.

The Flames have struggled out of the gate and the power play, or lack thereof, is a major reason why. They face the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday and that could solve some of their problems as Chicago has given up 12 power play goals thus far and are killing penalties at a 57.8 percent clip.

For the Calgary Flames' sake, hopefully the preseason wasn't a sign of things to come.

Calgary managed to score just nine goals in seven exhibition contests. Their preseason schedule is over and their season opener will be on Wednesday against Edmonton. "I thought our compete level was high. We did manage 35 shots, but we couldn’t put any in," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan after a 4-0 loss to Vancouver Thursday night. "The positive side of that is we know that there are little things that have to be done — and we’re teaching on that — to score goals in the National Hockey League, especially with our young players. You have to get to the net. Pucks to the net isn’t enough. You have to get bodies to the net. Those are things that we can learn and build from."

The Calgary Flames have hired former Coyotes general manager Don Maloney to be a pro scout.

Maloney was the GM in Arizona for nine years. Under his watch, the Coyotes made the playoffs three times. Maloney was named the NHL's General Manager of the year in 2009-10. He and current Flames GM Brad Treliving know each other from their days in the Coyotes organization. Treliving was the assistant GM in Arizona from 2003 to 2014.

Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard have joined the Calgary Flames as assistant coaches.

They'll work under new bench boss Glen Gulutzan. Cameron is going to be familiar to a lot of people as he served as the head coach of the Ottawa Senators for the last two seasons. Jerrard, meanwhile, has spent the past three campaigns working as an assistant coach with the AHL's Utica Comets. Prior to that he was an assistant with the Dallas Stars.
