PHILADELPHIA – We’ll chorus from calling him the hero, because the revamped Calgary Flames haven’t counted on a lot of these this yr.

Sure, the child from Plano, Texas.

“It exhibits our recreation has actually grown, proper?” beamed Flames assistant coach, Kirk Muller, who performed the ultimate 4 seasons of his NHL profession within the Lone Star State.

“You’ve obtained Texans taking part in 400 video games within the NHL, it’s fairly particular.

“Once I performed in Dallas, you noticed the rinks being constructed and the children taking part in hockey there, and he’s an instance of these youngsters which have come up now and made the NHL.

“Not just for a couple of video games, however to play 400 video games is kind of an honour. He had a heck of a recreation to complete that 400 video games.”

A pair of working man’s assists within the first interval lifted the Flames to a 2-0 lead over a struggling Flyers membership they’d finally end off within the third with two empty netters.

Coleman’s was one among them, which is sweet information on loads of fronts for the person who complained to nobody simply two video games earlier when he returned to play his former membership in Tampa whereas toiling on the fourth line.

Not that his contributions are typically measured in objectives and assists, however a promotion to the third unit alongside Mikael Backlund and Jonathan Huberdeau has now netted him 4 factors in two video games, together with snipes in consecutive spins.

“I heard a joke that I made it there earlier than 31,” smiled the 30-year-old winger, whose membership handed the Flyers their seventh-straight loss.

“It’s not the normal path to get to 400, however I’m extraordinarily proud to get to play that many video games on this league. It’s one of the best league on the planet.

“To be rewarded with a very good night time and clearly most significantly, two wins on the highway, is good.”

The Flames, who had but to win consecutive highway assessments this season, have received two of the primary three on this season-high six-game trek, together with Monday’s 5-2 win over the Flyers and Saturday’s Florida reunion of types.

It was Coleman who’s dogged dedication to clear his personal zone that sprang Jonathan Huberdeau on a 2-on-1 that the Flames beginner buried with a wrister far aspect as Coleman acted as a decoy.

Few issues are extra urgent in Calgary than serving to Huberdeau return to the shape that noticed him end second in league scoring final yr, and maybe Coleman can present that spark.

“A 2-on-1, I believe I haven’t had too many this yr, so it’s good to get one and I sort of tried to maintain it easy,” smiled the playmaker, whose third comes two days after scoring an enormous confidence booster in Saturday’s shootout.

“I don’t assume I’ve ever shot on a 2-on-1. Colesy was open, too, but it surely was good to attain that one.

“It’s been good taking part in with these guys. And I believe Colesy, 400 video games, that’s fairly cool. And to cap it off like that is superior. He works actually exhausting, in order that was nice, three factors.”

Huberdeau’s aim within the opening 5 minutes was adopted eight minutes later by the same end by Dillon Dube, who regarded off Nikita Zadorov on a 2-on-1 he too completed completely for his second of the yr.

“When he’s skating and he’s looking pucks, he’s at his finest and that line was good tonight,” stated Muller of Dube, who skated alongside Nazem Kadri and Andrew Mangiapane.

“Doobs is skating very well and when he had that chance to capitalize together with his shot, he took benefit of it. That’s an ideal recreation for him to maintain constructing on. He’s a child that could be a momentum-type participant and that’s one thing to construct on tonight.”

Recent off of being Saturday’s shootout hero, Rasmus Andersson put the Flames up 3-1 within the second with a degree blast that went in off of Joel Farabee’s stick, establishing a 3rd interval through which the Flames are the lowest-scoring crew within the league.

The Flyers narrowed the hole to 3-2 on an egregious giveaway by Andrew Mangiapane with 12 minutes remaining, setting the desk for a couple of key Jacob Markstrom saves earlier than Coleman and Lewis discovered the empty internet within the remaining two minutes.

“We knew there was going to be a pushback sooner or later and so they scored, however we caught with it and I believe we completed it off – that’s all that issues,” stated Huberdeau.

“We battled. It’s one other good win for us. Now we’ve obtained two in a row on the highway. It feels good on the highway journey, however now we’ve obtained to maintain it rolling.”
Subsequent cease, is Pittsburgh, the place it positive appears logical Darryl Sutter will maintain the strains collectively in an effort to proceed constructing chemistry.

“Backs has in all probability been our most constant ahead since Day 1 this yr – he has that two-way sort play that stabilizes the road and provides (Huberdeau) an opportunity to create some offence,” defined Muller.

“And Coles, he’s a chaser. That’s his recreation – he’s at his finest when he hunts pucks. Whenever you get playmaking, the mixture of working collectively, chemistry – they’re veteran guys – it makes for a very good line.”

For the third time in 5 NHL video games with the Flames this season, Dennis Gilbert gamely dropped the mitts, getting one of the best of Zack MacEwen lower than a minute earlier than Dube’s aim.

The 26-year-old defenceman is hellbent on doing the whole lot he can to remain within the lineup, which will probably be robust as Michael Stone began skating with the crew once more Monday, making him a possible starter Wednesday towards the Penguins.
