Goaltending intrigue arises for Game 4 of Ducks-Flames playoff series
21 Abril, 2017, 20:19
Anaheim didn't let Johnson get settled before coming after him. New coach Glen Gulutzan turned Calgary into a team that actually wasn't all that bad in terms of possession, overall the Flames increased their point total by 17, and when the season was coming to a close, Calgary found itself pushing for a divisional playoff spot, but ultimately came up short and landed in the top wild-card spot.
Even if - given the criticism flowing in his and the Ducks' direction after their June reunion - he might feel he has reason to do so.
The Ducks next play the victor of the series between the Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks, who are deadlocked at 2-2. "It's more about the team". I think in the northern parts of the United States of America, hockey is popular enough but it's certainly not popular anywhere with an arid climate. "We're going to try to do everything in our power to send a message and just make them a little nervous", Calgary rookie Matthew Tkachuk said during Tuesday's optional skate. This is just one step along the way here.
The Calgary Flames are still a young team, and it was evident in all four games.

"You can't discredit the opposition", Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said.
"You know, I don't understand the way they're doing this", said NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman when asked about the Treliving situation specifically during a radio segment on Edmonton's 630 CHED on Thursday afternoon. If Edmonton manage to survive the barrage of penalties that are being called against them then you have to wonder if they could do the same against the Ducks, a better team than the Sharks.
The big benefit with that is extra rest and it will go a long way toward having Cam Fowler and Sami Vatanen back within the defense corps, whose depth came into play in moving past the Flames.
Carlyle said Thursday he expects both players to be available for the second round but wouldn't say if they'll be ready for the opener.
"It's tough", Flames captain Mark Giordano said.

"We just want to focus on Game 4. They know that their injuries are such that they should be made available if they continue to heal the way they have so far.
"They're feeling pretty good about themselves and we're happy to have them back into the fold". I wonder if they're looking at somebody else?
Assuming they get around to confirming that he's staying around, Treliving can then shift his attention to dealing with this summer's primary tasks, which begin in goal, where the Flames made important year-over-year strides.
"And as the series goes on, it gets harder on the body". Guys start taking injuries that they probably wouldn't have otherwise. "We won't get frustrated, but we do realize there's urgency involved". The 23-year-old was pulled halfway through the game after allowing four goals on 16 shots. "This is sports and when you're on the winning side, you've hopefully taken advantage of some of the things you were presented with and that's the way it worked out for us". In contract, the Ducks were 2-19-7 when trailing after two periods, for a.071 winning percentage that ranked 27th.
