Five Things You May Not Know: Kings at Flames Edition

Gaudreau Johnny Calgary Flames NHL hockeyForget the vaunted two-goal lead in hockey, the Kings blew a three-goal lead against the Flames last week in the closing minutes of their contest in Los Angeles. Johnny Gaudreau aka Johnny Hockey recorded a hat trick, then added two more goals against Edmonton in Calgary’s next game, and was just announced as the NHL’s First Star of the Week.

A trip to the Saddledome used to be a scary thought for the Kings, but they’ll put Jonathan Quick back in the net tonight – he of the 4-1 career record in Calgary, with a scant 1.46 goals against average. We have even more tidbits for you though. Below are five notes that will certainly make you sound smart while watching all the action with a friend or loved one… or even at a sports bar talking to strangers…

Five Things You May Not Have Known about Calgary Flames:
