Flames played hard out of the gate. Took their foot off the pedal towards the end.
I don't think it was so much that they took their foot off the pedal but the mental mistakes made - Regehr's (or was it Glencross?) turnover and Giordano taking himself out of position to make that hit.
I am hoping this team can evolve beyond the individuals this year. I want team play this year. The D has no identity so far. Everyone seems to be playing for themselves instead of the team. The Bottom 4 of the D needs to step up and play for the team. I'll never question Regehr but ever since Hammerdick left they have lacked that D cohesion.
A lame penalty from Sarich gives the Avs a chance to tie.
