#Flames blank the Oilers 5-0 to snap a four-game skid. Largest margin of victory this year. Jacob Markstrom 17 saves for his third shutout of the season, eighth of his career. Calgary now 3-5-0 in this year’s Battle of Alberta with two more to go: April 29 and May 1.
So, Calgary was originally supposed to wrap up the regular season May 8th in Vancouver. Instead, they’ll now play May 9th, 15th, and 16th. Plus, a game moved to May 3rd where they had originally had a three-day break. #Flames

#Flames have signed their 2020 seventh round pick to a three-year ELC. Solovyov is a 6’2 left-shot defenceman. Has played with KHL Dinamo Minsk this season. 2 goals and 9 points in 41 games.
If you’re counting, with tonight’s loss and a Montreal win, Calgary’s elimination number is down to 12.5. Each #Flames regulation loss or Habs win of any kind drops number by one. OT/SO loss either way drops it by 0.5. At zero, Calgary will be mathematically eliminated.
