On Wednesday night, the Calgary Flames did something that no team had done prior in the 104 year history of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Flames secured a 2-0 lead just 51 seconds into their second round series against the Edmonton Oilers, the fastest two-goal start to a playoff game in NHL history.

Elias Lindholm got things started for Calgary, scoring just 26 seconds into the game on a wrister from the left circle. 25 seconds after that, Andrew Mangiapane secured the record for Calgary with a clean up shot from in front of the goalie’s crease.

Calgary would eventually take a 3-1 lead into the first intermission after former Boston Bruin Brett Ritchie and Oilers superstar Connor McDavid added goals of their own.
