Some Lightning/Flames Symmetry

March 31, 2019

Long ago, the Tampa Bay Lightning wrapped up the best record in the NHL.

It now is almost certain that the Calgary Flames will get the best record in the NHL’s Western Conference.

Fifteen years ago, the Lightning defeated the Flames in a 7 game NHL Final to win their lone Stanley Cup crown to date.

Thirty years ago in 1989, the Flames won their lone NHL crown 6’ing the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL Final.

Montreal had won in their last nine NHL Final series including the ninth vs the Flames in 1986.


Martin St. Louis, pictured above, scored in overtime to keep Tampa Bay alive in game 6 at Calgary in that ’04 Final. “T.B.” then titled with a game 7 win at home.
