What's Next for the Flames?
May 27 2022
Eric Francis joins host Matt Marchese to look back on the Battle of Alberta that came to close last night. He shares a Calgary perspective on Blake Coleman's non-goal, credits Edmonton for shutting down the Flames' top scorers, and looks ahead to what the future holds for Johnny Gaudreau (00:16). Next up, ESPN's Arda Ocal chats about the unacceptable hate Nazem Kadri received following his collision with Jordan Binnington, Nathan MacKinnon's game-changing skill, the joy of seeing another round of Connor McDavid, and the NHL's need to better market their stars (18:29). Finally, Avalanche radio play-by-play voice Conor McGahey checks in ahead of Game 6 in St. Louis and discusses if MacKinnon can top his incredible Game 5 performance, Mikko Rantanen's impact beyond the score sheet, and Cale Makar's perfect compliment in Devon Toews (47:07). The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliates.
