The face-off difference didn't effect the game as much as you think.
Not if... the Flames won 10 more draws and 10 more opportunities of puck possession. Just as playing from behind is draining, so is playing without the puck. That's why the rink is tilted, so to speak, when you are on the opponents' side of center with the puck. Everyone has a little more gas with the biscuit than without.

Those lost faceoffs will kill us going forward, no doubt at all.
