The Daily: Massive Price for Karlsson, Flames Finish Frantic in Dallas
The NHL trade deadline should be interesting. The asking price on Erik Karlsson is bonkers but there are plenty of Vancouver Canucks in play. Meanwhile, the Flames had a frantic finish in Dallas victory.
The Calgary Flames nearly collapsed in the third period but escaped Dallas with a 6-5 victory. How often does a team win giving up four unanswered goals? There's lots going on in the Pacific Division. The San Jose Sharks reportedly have a massive price tag on defenceman Erik Karlsson ahead of the NHL trade deadline. The latest on the Vancouver Canucks soap opera, from Tanner Pearson’s injury to Bo Horvat’s likely trade. And are the Seattle Kraken for real?
That and more in The Daily CHN links:
The Calgary Flames almost squandered a big lead. ALMOST. But they said they didn't panic.
This team doesn't do things the easy way – at least not yet — but it is continuing its climb toward the playoffs. Points in 14 of 17 games is nothing to shake a stick at.
