Flames Daily Roundup: Pospisil’s Big Night, Trade Deadline Storylines



Kylington flames daily

Following the NHL on any given morning, afternoon, or evening can be an arduous process. Look at one site, check another; that can take a lot out of your day. The Flames Daily Roundup finds the Flames news you may have missed and sprinkles in some drama from around the League.

For example, something very strange is going on in Buffalo.

While NHL Refs tend to be harder on rookies, Zach Benson is getting absolutely punched down upon. To the point where head coach Don Granato is content with taking fines in order to stand up for him.  

Here is one example.
