Ducks/Flames Game 3 Thread: Fire Hazards

New, comments

A win tonight would leave the Flames barely flickering, but in order to get that result, the Ducks will need to survive an environment in which their opponent has been considerably hotter.

Numbers for Nerds: Someone call Darren Rovell in for this one. Sam Bennett is playing for Calgary tonight, and since this will be his 10th game this year in a Flames jersey, he is now officially on the first year of his three-year entry-level contract. According to sportssalary.com, once Bennett hits the ice tonight, activating his NHL contract, his salary will spike up to $925,000, meaning the 18-year-old will now be making just over 13 times more money than he would have if he played for Calgary's AHL affiliate in Adirondack this year.
