Look at the bright side! The Flames don't need to tank to get first overall.

The optimism take-aways from last night's game:

Irving played fairly solid; was in pretty good position and made a lot of decent saves during regulation time.

Brodie is looking more and more like a solid top four defenseman.

I keep thinking back to how we could be 6-2-2 if not for the down right awful play of Kipper early in the season....

He wasn't great, but he hasn't been awful either.

The optimism take-away from tonight's game:

Cammalleri plays better when he's not injured.

Teams win games when they score more than the opposition

I tried to pick the less obvious optimistic thing about tonight - other than winning.

Despite the win against Dallas, I refuse to believe that feeling was optimism, just yet.

Yeah Bachman is awful and we caught a team who is brutal on B2B's on the tail end of a B2B. Still, lots of nice things to see from Cammy, Cervenka, Iggy... lrving even? lol.
