Riding the Calgary Flames roller coaster, what’s next?

The Calgary Flames return home after a successful Eastern road trip, capturing 6 out of a possible 8 points. NHLHS Calgary Flames correspondent Shahbaz Syed takes a look at the latest success and what this means to the playoff picture and on the trade front.

Well in my mind its logical what comes next. We came back from huge deficits to lose, so now we are going to give up a huge lead, ala chicago, and then win in the extra frame.

I think blow-out for opposing teams is whats likely next. Haven't had one of those in a while and I'm sure we are due.

This team literally tears my feelings. I'd love to make the playoffs and to relive the excitement of them actually doing something, but on the other hand we know they won't amount to anything there, so we should look for a solid pick for the future...

This team is so inconsistent, even the consistency in their inconsistency is inconsistent.

Well we better win tommorrow night considering we're getting the Wild on the end of a back to back.

And I hope we win on Friday as i'll be in the stands for my first Calgary home game!


But realistically... we'll like lose our next 2 and then surprise and beat Vancouver on the end of a back to back for Hockey day in Canada.

As an Avalanche fan i am rooting for the Flames tonight. Most NHL teams visiting Calgary stay at a hotel a couple blocks from my work. I should have made lots of noise to keep them up last night.

I wish I could predict those. Sadly, my knowledge is limited to blow-out nature... Guess I could make a living betting on Flames games..

I feel bad predicting it now... Hopefully next game they can pick up the pace and not look terrible on the ice...
