Atkinson scored two goals and an assist in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Canadiens.

Backlund started the game by potting back-to-back goals, his 14th and 15th on the season, to give the Flames the early lead. He added an assist on the fifth and final goal while also adding three shots, one hit and a plus-3 rating in 18:06 of ice time. Despite the strong last two games -- he provided an assist Thursday -- Backlund has been scoreless in four of his last seven games. When not lighting up the scoresheet, Backlund provides decent peripherals, as he has 185 shots on goal and 62 hits for the year.
