It was a bittersweet night for rookie center Mark Jankowski.

Jankowski scored four times Cheap Antonio Callaway Jersey , and the Calgary Flames finished off a disappointing season with a 7-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday.

Not the way we wanted it to end, we want to keep on playing, but definitely a building year, said the 23-year-old Jankowski, who had just three points in his previous 18 games. I just take everything I learned this year from all the vets and use that as fuel in the summer to come back into camp and even better player.

Calgary entered the night in an offensive funk, having mustered only nine goals over the previous nine games, eight of them losses. The seven goals was the clubs biggest offensive outburst since a 7-4 victory over St. Louis on Nov. 13.

Its one of those things. Tonight, for some reason, everything bounced in and I think we could have had even more, Flames captain Mark Giordano said. Its nice to end it on that note, but its been a tough year and obviously a disappointing year.

Before the game, players from both teams and the officials formed a circle at center ice for a moment of silence for the 15 people who lost their lives in the Humboldt Broncos bus accident.

You have those guys, that community, the team, on your mind all day Authentic Sam Darnold Jersey , Giordano said. Were one big community, the hockey community, theres a lot of people feeling this one.

Afterward, the Saddledome crowd broke into a chant of Broncos! Broncos!

We talked a lot to our guys about the emotion and the purity of the game, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said. Just think about the young men on that bus, who would love to be in the seats that we are. That was their goal and we wanted to play as well as we can to honor that.

Spencer Foo, Garnet Hathaway and Johnny Gaudreau also scored for the Flames (37-35-10), who missed the playoffs for the seventh time in the past nine seasons. A big factor was Calgarys 17-20-4 home record, its worst mark since 2000-01.

Cody Eakin scored for Vegas (51-24-7), which finished first in the Pacific Division and will open the playoffs on home ice against Los Angeles. Vegas is the first modern-era expansion team in any of the four North America pro spots to win its division in its first season.

Right from the start its been a fun season, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury said. Its fun to be a part of this team and this organization through it all. Im really proud of the way this team has done throughout the season. Playoffs are fun, intense, exciting. Im looking forward to getting it going.

Golden Knights veteran James Neal was impressed at how quickly the team gelled after being thrown together at the expansion draft.

What impressed me most about our group is the consistency we played with, the way we rolled four lines, we counted on each player and needed each guy every night and every guy brought their game Cheap Justin Bethel Jersey , he said.

Down 3-0 after the first period, Vegas scored 51 seconds into the second. But the Flames responded with three more unanswered goals before the period ended.

Jankowski secured his first NHL hat trick with a short-handed goal at 18:06, bringing over 100 hats raining down onto the ice.

He completed the scoring at 1:32 of the third. It was Calgarys first power-play goal in 14 games, snapping a 0-for-35 skid.

Jon Gillies had 26 stops for Calgary. Fleury gave up six goals on 18 shots before being replaced to start the third period. Malcolm Subban had 12 stops in relief.

NOTES: Both teams wore Humboldt Broncos decals on their helmet. The Flames also announced they were donating their $84,055 half of the 50/50 prize pot to those affected by Fridays tragedy.
