  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Can't shake skid

    Markstrom allowed five goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    Markstrom's brutal second round saw him give up 24 goals in five contests against the Oilers, losing the last four of them to end the Flames' season. The 32-year-old wasn't alone in struggling against the likes of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, but it was a stark drop-off after Markstrom was excellent in the regular season. He had a 37-15-9 record with nine shutouts, a 2.22 GAA and a .922 save percentage in 63 games, stats worthy of a Vezina Trophy nomination. He's under contract for four more years, so he'll be expected to carry a starter's workload again in 2022-23.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Gets starting nod

    Markstrom will be back in net Thursday for Game 5 at home against Edmonton, per Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Markstrom has struggled so far against Edmonton, having allowed 19 goals on 127 shots in the series, equating to a sub-par .850 save percentage. The 32-year-old netminder will look to bounce back Thursday as the Flames try to avoid elimination in Game 5.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Better but not good enough in loss

    Markstrom allowed four goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 4. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Markstrom made a blunder with a giveaway that led to a goal by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins just 21 seconds into the game. He surrendered two more in the first period, but the Flames were able to briefly pull even before Nugent-Hopkins struck again with 3:27 left in the third. While this was better for Markstrom compared to his work against the Oilers so far, he's still giving up too many goals to put the Flames in position to win. A must-win Game 5 awaits on Thursday in Calgary.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Set to start Tuesday

    Markstrom will protect the road goal in Tuesday's Game 4 versus the Oilers, Aaron Vickers of reports.

    Markstrom has been woeful against the Oilers, but he'll get another chance to snap out of his slump in a pivotal Game 4. He's allowed 15 goals on 102 shots through the first three contests, which gives an .853 save percentage. With Chris Tanev (undisclosed) on track to return, he may have at least a little more defensive support.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Pulled after ugly middle frame

    Markstrom stopped 30 of 34 shots through two periods before getting pulled in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 3.

    Markstrom held the fort in the first period, but it came tumbling down at the hands of the Oilers' top line in the second. Dan Vladar played the third period and made seven saves, though the Oilers were more intent on protecting their lead than pushing for more. Markstrom's woes against the Oilers are becoming more noticeable -- he's allowed 15 goals in three games in this series, and it's fair to question if he'll be allowed to play through the slump or if head coach Darryl Sutter will turn to Vladar for the start in Tuesday's Game 4.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Leaky again in Game 2

    Markstrom surrendered five goals on 40 shots in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 2.

    Markstrom was bailed out by his teammates in Game 1 with nine goals, but the Flames were limited to three in Friday's loss. The Swede has struggled against the Oilers this year, with 11 goals allowed in two playoff contests as well as 14 tallies against in four regular-season matchups. He'll have to find his game in hostile territory -- the next meeting is Sunday's Game 3 in Edmonton.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Slated to start

    Markstrom is the projected home starter for Friday's Game 2 versus Edmonton, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Markstrom struggled in Wednesday's high-scoring Game 1 against the Oilers, surrendering six goals on just 28 shots, but he was still able to come away with a win thanks to the eye-popping nine goals of support his teammates provided him. The 32-year-old netminder will try to help the Flames take a 2-0 series lead by shooting for his sixth win of the postseason.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Wins ugly Wednesday

    Markstrom stopped 22 of 28 shots in Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Oilers in Game 1.

    Markstrom allowed the Flames' four-goal lead to slip away, but the offense bailed him out with the last three tallies in the contest. The Swede had allowed just 11 goals in seven games versus the Stars, so this was an uncharacteristically poor outing for him. The 32-year-old is no stranger to playing long stretches of games in a row, but he'll need to sharpen up against the Oilers' big guns in Friday's Game 2.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Starting Game 1

    Markstrom will guard the home goal in Wednesday's Game 1 versus the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Markstrom will look to build off a fantastic first round, in which he posted a 1.53 GAA and a .943 save percentage in seven games. The Oilers present a different type of challenge than the Stars did -- Markstrom and the Flames' defense will have to address the Oilers' superstars, which could see his ratios get a bit worse in the second round.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Prevails in overtime

    Markstrom stopped 26 of 28 shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars in Game 7.

    Markstrom was relatively unchallenged compared to his counterpart in the other net, as Jake Oettinger stopped 64 of 67 shots. When called upon, Markstrom made the saves he needed to, buying enough time for Johnny Gaudreau to send the Flames through to the second round in overtime. Markstrom finished the first round with just 11 goals allowed on 192 shots, good for a .943 save percentage. The Flames' second round series versus their provincial rivals, the Oilers, begins Wednesday.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Expected to start Sunday

    Markstrom is the expected starter for Sunday's Game 7 against visiting Dallas, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    This comes as no surprise, as Markstrom has been absolutely sensational this series with a sparkling .945 save percentage and 1.52 GAA. If he can backstop the Flames to a decisive fourth victory over Dallas, the Oilers -- and another Battle of Alberta -- await in Round 2.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Takes loss in Game 6

    Markstrom allowed three goals on 39 shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Stars in Game 6.

    Markstrom was solid as usual, but the Stars' offense was just a bit better in this one. He's allowed only nine goals in six playoff contests thus far, though the 39 shots he faced Friday marked a series high. The Swede will likely get the nod in Sunday's Game 7 with a trip to the second round on the line.

    The Stars broke through on a fortunate bounce in the second period, but that was all Markstrom yielded in this contest. The Flames then rallied for three goals in the third. This was the fourth time in five games Markstrom has limited the Stars to one or fewer goals. He'll likely start again in Dallas on Friday, with the Flames looking to finish off the series.
