Streaky Flames Still Fighting
With 57 fights in 54 games, the Calgary Flames are the only NHL team averaging more than a fight per game. They’ll need to keep fighting to stop the current nine-game losing streak (with three coming in the shootout). They’ve lost 11 of 12 ever since winning five straight.
It’s been a roller coaster of a ride for fans. They may not be able to count on wins, but they know they’ll get tough, defensive hockey. Brandon Prust has 18 fighting majors, second in the NHL to Zenon Konopka. Brian McGrattan is tied for 6th in the league with 14 majors.
