Calgary Flames players are making the most of their time back on the ice at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Five players returned to their home ice on Friday, which is now possible in Phase 2 of the NHL’s return to play plan.
Those same five players were back at it again on Monday, and they reserved time to complete a challenge in support of ALS. Challenged by former teammate Matt Stajan, Flames captain Mark Giordano got help from teammates Mark Jankowski, Michael Stone, Dillan Dube, and Matthew Phillips for this incredible trick shot relay:

The trick not only involved all five players keeping the puck in the air before Giordano shot it post and in, but it also involved kicking the puck into the air and a header mixed in for good measure.
Not bad, gentlemen.
Good luck to Jamie MacLennan and Ryan Leslie, who Giordano has challenged but will have a hard time topping that.
It’s all part of the #TrickShot4Snowy challenge, which is picking up steam online.
