NHL - US Sports: Coleman has Flames belief

Forward Blake Coleman believes the Calgary Flames have what it takes for him to three-peat as a Stanley Cup Champion.

The Flames are 15/2 to be crowned Stanley Champions in 2021/22 which would be a third triumph in a row for the 30-year-old who signed a six-year deal with the Flames from the Tampa Bay Lightning in the off-season.

Stars first up

Calgary will take on the Dallas Stars in the first-round of the post-season after winning the Pacific Division with a 50-21-11 record. Their 111 points was the second-best in franchise history.

25 of the Flames' victories (25-12-4) came on the road, the most in their history, an achievement Coleman believes will serve them well in the most important weeks of the season. 

Coleman scored 33 points in his debut campaign with the Flames (16 goals, 17 assists) adding secondary scoring to a first-line of Johny Gaudreau, Elias Lindholm and Matthew Tkachuk who all reached 40 goals in career-best seasons.

Belief is key

Gaudreau finished second in the NHL with 115 points (40 goals, 75 assists) in 82 games, Tkachuk had 104 points (42 goals, 62 assists) and Lindholm had 82 points (42 goals, 40 assists) also in 82 games.

Coleman said to the media: "I think guys really believe that we have what it takes in our room to be successful - obviously in the regular season, but come playoff time, too.

"We're not a team that relies on one guy. We obviously have some really talented players - a very talented first line - but we win as a committee and guys have really taken ownership of their game and made sure that they're pulling the rope, night-in and night-out."
