Edmonton – Nazim Qadri He scored his first goal for the Calgary Flames in a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Saturday.
Kadri, who also had an assist, extended the difference to 3-1 in 7:41 of the first period after Oilers defended. Britt Colak She fell into the Edmonton Blue Line, allowing him to break into alone in the power game.
“I just tried to skate faster [when Kulak fell down]This is what happened. I saw him fall and just tried to put the planes down, and luckily I had the chance and was able to finish,” Qadri said.
Michael Stone He had a goal and two passes, Andrew Mangyapan record and Dan Vladar Made 26 saves for Calgary (2-0-0).
“I think the guys were great today, they were blocking,” Vladar said. “Obviously, when you get a 4-1 lead, it’s a lot easier to play. You kind of don’t want to give them the impetus to let go of the second or third. [in]. I did, but it clearly wasn’t the plan. I’m just literally trying to do my best.”
Conor McDavid He scored his fourth goal this season, and Leon Drystel He got assists for Edmonton (1-1-0), who also trailed 3-0 against the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday before amassing a 5-3 win.
“We’re putting ourselves behind in games and obviously that’s not our plan going into the game,” Oilers coach Jay Woodcroft said. “The response in stages two and three was better, but when you put yourself down the way we did it’s a hill too big to climb after getting down to that team 4-1.”
Jack Campbell He allowed four goals in 11 shots before being withdrawn in the 10:18 minute of the first half. Stuart Skinner Made 31 tackles in relief.
“You look at some of the goals that were scored, and around our net I thought we weren’t anywhere near as assertive or difficult the way we normally play,” Woodcroft said. “They’ve done a good job getting into our network, and we can do a better job of stopping them from getting there.”
Michael Backlund He gave Flames a 1-0 lead at 1:13 of the first half, scoring on a rebound.
Cody Sisi He tied 1-1 in 3:18 from the high hole, but Stone put Calgary back ahead 2-1 in 4:34 with a slap from the standoff.
After Qadri extended his lead, Mangiapane made it 4-1 at 10:18, cleaning a puck ball into the crease.
“I thought we played a really tough game,” Flames coach Daryl Sutter said. “By the second period, you knew they were going to come with a boost, and they did it early… I thought most of the time we did a pretty good job.”
McDavid cut the difference to 4-2 at 10:46 in the second half on strong play, making a backhand cross pass from Evander King.
Ryan McLeod He made it 4-3 at 14:54 when he converted a pass pass by the defender Ryan Murray.
“The first period was good,” Stone said. “We came out with a lot of energy and did some good things.” “We kind of got on our heels a little bit in the second, but we turned it around again in the third and we finished the game well, and it was good to see. We didn’t panic. We know what it takes to win and what the little things have to be done to win this league. “.
Vladar made eight saves in the third, including a tackle with his stick on a drytail backhand attempt in the low hole with 11 seconds remaining.
“We had a few hits at the end. We were hoping one of those would work, but it wasn’t meant to be,” Driesitl said. “Just individual and systemic errors, they are small errors that are easy to fix.
“We can’t score three goals for a team on consecutive nights, though. That’s something we have to address, obviously.”
