CALGARY - The Calgary Flames can’t clone Michael Cammalleri.

Too bad, really, because this rebuilding bunch is starved for offensive game-breakers.

Cammalleri has been on an absolute roll of late, scoring five times over the past five games. The rest of his Flames teammates have combined for just five goals over that same span.

“You look at the Stamkos, the Ovechkins, the Kovalchuks, all the great goal-scorers ... ” said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. “When they’re hot, anything they touch gets the red light on, and that’s what Cammy is doing right now.”

The Flames have a 3-7-1 record since Cammalleri returned from a hand/wrist injury, although you can’t gripe about the contributions they’re getting from the 31-year-old left-winger.

Despite missing the first seven dates on the regular-season slate, Cammalleri already leads the Flames with eight snipes.
