This cast of Calgary Flames was expected to make history.
Just not like this.
For the first time since the NHL started offering a reward for extra-time losses the Flames have collected at least one point in each of their first five outings of a new season.
With Friday’s 3-2 triumph over the New Jersey Devils at the Saddledome they became the first crew in Calgary’s history to achieve that feat.
Not bad for a group that was considered among the favourites to finish dead-last in the NHL standings this season.

Forget the crowd, anyone in Canada watching on TSN could see the kid is the real deal, including Canadian golfer/Flames fan Graham DeLaet, who tweeted last night about how “special” Monahan is. Less than two weeks in, scoring seems par for the course for the youngster who now has three goals and five points in four outings to lead the...
While Sean Monahan is making an immediate impact for the surprising Calgary Flames, not much has gone right for the New Jersey Devils during their worst start in 12 years.
Monahan looks to stay hot and help the Flames earn points in their first five games for the first time in 35 years Friday night when they host the winless Devils.
