CALGARY, Alberta -- Having recorded points in their past four games, the Calgary Flames hope to keep things rolling when the host the San Jose Sharks at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday.
Despite a strong start against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, the Flames (16-12-3) ultimately lost 2-1 in a shootout to their Western Conference rivals at the Xcel Energy Center.
"We put ourselves in a good spot against a stingy team," said Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan, whose team outshot the Wild 10-4 in the first period and 27-22 overall. "It was one of our better games all year and we've just got to continue to do that. Our game's trending in the right direction."
