The game against Columbus was one of the worst I've seen all year, the game against Toronto was one of the best. Here's hoping they can play like they did Saturday and get 2 points tonight, right now this team is struggling to be a playoff team! I think this season is a learning season, and if we are going to make a run it will have to be next season, After that there are a lot of contracts up, will be hard to keep the team together!
Flames and Oilers tied after the first period, should be interesting to see how the next two periods go. The only thing I'm certain of is McDavid scoring at least one highlight reel goal against the Flames. lol.
Looked like the same team from a couple weeks ago to me. They're still struggling to get the puck in the slot in the offensive zone and struggling to defend the slot in their own zone. The team is still creating most of their chances off perimeter play and shots from the point instead of play down low and in the slot which would create higher danger chances.
Johnny definitely got booed, except when he missed the net on a penalty shot, that was nearly a standing ovation. The video tribute looked good, Johnny stared at the ice the whole time and gave a small wave, definitely looked emotional for him last night.
I like Backs, but I think he only has a few years left in his career, dude is 33 and only has 1.5 years left on his contract. I think he should have been made the captain as soon as Gio went to Seattle, but now it has to be someone else.
Nice win over Seattle by the Calgary Jekyll and Hydes. If the gas have beaten the Blackhawks like they were supposed to they would be right in the middle things.
If there’s one silver lining from the season it’s that the Flames are still struggling to find there game but are lucky enough to still be in the playoff mix.
WHen it clicks, they should be able to go on a tear! Flames have by far the most 1 goal games, would be awesome if they could win a few more. Flames are 6 points back of Seattle for the division lead, a few more wins in those 1 goal games and we could be at the top of the Pacific!
