The Athletties Clark’s impact Boeser’s sneaky plan Stecher’s rave reviews and how the Canucks got Leivo

Jacob Markstrom stopped 44 shots through overtime and all three attempts in the shootout as the host Vancouver Canucks claimed a 4-3 shootout win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night. Bo Horvat, Josh Leivo and Brock Boeser scored for Vancouver in regulation.

The Vancouver Canucks could use a win here after losing four of their last five games. Pettersson also collected two assists, giving him eight points in four games against the Flames this season and 50 overall on the season.

He scored with a devastating penalty shot, a game-winning snipe which went in and out of the net before the Flames goalie even had time to raise his glove.

The 22-year-old would no doubt have been celebrating his goal a little more after the game had it held up as the victor or even if the Flames had just managed to get a victory at all.

Retail inflation eases to 2.05% in January
Consumer Food Price Index (CFPI) inflation stood at (-) 2.17 per cent in January as against (-) 2.65 per cent in December. Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast January's annual increase in the consumer price index at 2.48 percent.

Canucks defenseman Alex Biega was seen trying to hit an airborne puck when his stick hit the 31-year-old hockey player's face during the game's third period.

Elias Pettersson had himself a game. Johnny Gaudreau leads Calgary with 29 goals, Sean Monahan has 35 assists and Elias Lindholm has 131 shots on goal. The Flames are 2 in the league in goals per game (3.69) and 9 in goals against (2.87), while their power play percentage is the 8-best in the NHL (22.9).

The Flames got on the board midway through the first, capitalizing on a rebound. "It's definitely nice and it was a nice pass by (Hanifin)". David Rittich had 22 saves and made two stops in the shootout.
