As good as Mike Smith has been for the Flames this season, he can't play every game. With that said, one in the reasons Smith has started 37 of Calgary's first 44 online games is because the team couldn't trust former No. 2 netminder Eddie Lack, who after a poor start to the season was placed on waivers, sent to the AHL and then traded to the Devils. David Rittich, who the Flames signed as an undrafted free agent prior to the start of last season, has been fantastic since being recalled from the Stockton Heat in late November. As a matter of fact, Rittich is unbeaten in regulation time in his first five NHL starts. Prior to Friday's recreation, Rittich said his self confidence is rising by the day. After making a https://www.stylepanthers.com/florida-panthers-jersey/aleksi-heponiemi-jersey career-high 41 saves in his team's 4-2 victory about the Panthers, the 25-year-old's self-a surance should be at an all-time high. More importantly, so should the team's self-confidence in Rittich, who has earned an opportunity to play more often than just in the second of back-to-back online games. BACKLUND'S BESTMikael Backlund was fantastic on Friday. Despite having to focus on defence first because Glen Gulutzan asked him to go head-to-head against the Panthers' top players as often as po sible, Backlund still led the way for the Flames offensively. He notched one goal and two a sists for a season-high three points. Backlund, who finished fourth in Selke Trophy voting last season, continues to be one in the league's top two-way forwards. FIRST LINE FLYIN'Even though Micheal Ferland's four-game goal, a sist and point streaks were snapped on Friday, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan continued to produce. After snapping a season-long 10-game goalle s streak versus the Lightning on Thursday, Gaudreau scored again against the Panthers, stretching his point streak to 6 video games, while Monahan extended his a sist and point streaks to 6 video games with his team-leading 21st goal and an a sist in the 4-2 win. After recording 23 points in 14 video games last month, the Flames' first line has produced 25 points in five online games this month. 31 Ideas: The PodcastA weekly deep dive into the biggest hockey news in the world with hosts Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek.

Following a very impre sive 5-1 victory more than the league-leading Lightning on Thursday, the Flames weren't as good in Friday's recreation against the Panthers but still found a way to win. During the Aaron Ekblad Jersey 82-game grind that is the NHL's regular-season schedule, there are going to be night's when you're not at your best. Friday was one of those nights for the Flames, but they still picked up an important pair of points versus the Panthers.
