National Hockey League suspends Flames’ Giordano, Lomberg

Calgary Flames and Columbus Blue Jackets combined for 15 goals last night

Calgary Flames and Columbus Blue Jackets combined for 15 goals last night

Flames coach Bill Peters was undecided on Monday after practice whether Mike Smith (8-7-1) or David Rittich will start in goal. "Quite honestly, I can't blame Bob on a lot of them because it was such a insane game in front of him with deflections, off (defenseman Ryan Murray's) skate, and some insane stuff happening". Lindholm fired a five-hole shot for his 15th goal of the season - two short of his previous career high through just 29 games.

"We need to be very careful in grading Bob in that game", Tortorella said. The Flames top the Pacific Division at 18-9-2.

Giordano will miss Saturday's matchup against the Nashville Predators at the Saddledome and Sunday's Battle of Alberta rematch with the Oilers in Edmonton.

Johnny Gaudreau had two goals and two assists, and the Calgary Flames scored five goals in the second period to rally past the Columbus Blue Jackets 9-6 on Tuesday night.

Atkinson has 19 points (13 goals, six assists) during the streak and his goal total ties him for fifth in the National Hockey League with Nathan McKinnon (Colorado Avalanche) and David Pastrnak (Boston Bruins). "The chances were there and the pucks were finding a way to get in". "Alex played a really good game and kept us in there, especially at the beginning".

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 18 of 26 shots before being replaced in the third period by Joonas Korpisalo.

Arthur calls on beaten Pakistan to toughen up for Tests
The series saw New Zealand win the first Test , while Pakistan staged a comeback in the second to level things. "It was fantastic. However, that likely preference may result in limited involvement for the bowling stars of the third test victory over Pakistan .

Columbus plays at Philadelphia on Thursday. "When he's on, he's really on".

Smith checked Wild leading goal scorer Zach Parise in the second period when the goalie came out of his net to play the puck. As I said, at the moment, it looked like a head hit and it looked like he left his feet from the ice. "Everybody knows that. When he's off, he's really off".

Matt Dumba steamrolled Calgary center Mikael Backlund in the final minute of the game.

"I think it's showing no respect for the player and for the game", Lindholm said of the Dumba check.

After a scoreless first period, Lindholm - who thought he'd opened the scoring late in the first period only to see the goal disallowed by an offside earlier on the play - broke the deadlock 50 seconds into the second period. The lengthy video review gave Boudreau more confidence that he would win it after losing the Wild's first three challenges of the season. Flames forward Michael Frolik (lower body) and defenceman Michael Stone (blood clot) and Juusu Valimaki (lower body) were scratched from the Flames lineup.
