Milan Lucic Scores First Goal With Calgary Flames


  • Milan Lucic scored his first goal with Calgary, and it turned into the winner as the Flames held on to beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 on Thursday.
  • The Saddledome erupted at 3:58 of the third when Lucic finished off a passing sequence with Derek Ryan and Dillon Dube for his first goal in 29 games, dating back to last season when he was a member of the Edmonton Oilers. Chants of “Looo” rained down from the crowd as Lucic hugged his linemates in the corner after putting Calgary
    ahead 4-1.
  • It took 28 games, but Milan Lucic finally did it.

“A little bit of relief. It’s always nice to get the first one with your new team,” said Lucic, who had been held to four assists this season. “My teammates all along have been sticking with me and building me up, because it took longer than I hoped and probably a lot of people hoped, but good on everyone for all of the support.”

  • Tobias Rieder, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan also scored for Calgary (14-12-4). Monahan also had an assist for his first multi-point game since Nov. 7. The Flames have points in five straight games (4-0-1).
  • Interim head coach Geoff Ward improved to a perfect 3-0-0.
