****, one point but it is better than none. That said 1 point farther from a potential lottery pick.

Another garbage performance from Kiprusoff that cost us, in this case a point. Good on Karlsson for steppin' in and doing an excellent job. I think he has earned himself another start on Friday in Ottawa.

Hagman 1/8 this year in shootouts, change things up Sutter.

Tanguay has struggled lately too.

Good comeback, terrible goaltending by kipper.

And I would rather see Backlund sent down and get ice time, he is not getting an opportunity and I dont think I saw him once from the third period on. He looked rather disappointed on the bench from what I saw.

KArlsson has looked good.... happy to see that. I wonder what he would look like if he was started for say 4 in a row...

True but Cgy can no longer take a game vs a bottom feeder in the standings for granted

4:56 Time on ice for Backlund tonight.

That has to rattle his confidence.

Kotalik a -3 in under 10 minutes of ice. Sutter punishes him by putting him out for SO.
I know he's a 50% shooter in SO, but still.

Gotta complain about Olli again. He picked up 2 cheap secondary assists, but still looks out of sync on top line.

Lovin' Karlsson striking a pose yet again. Hope to see him start vs Sens.

And his line was actually pretty good at times imo.

Olli has been out of synce since after that initial hot spell just after he was a Flame in 2009... I agree about Karlsson... he has been a silver lining.

True, but Kipper has cost the Flames in the last two games so I don't think it's that big of a risk to give Henrik a shot. Letting Kipper try to play himself out of this funk may just cost them more desperately needed points.

I liked Karlsson's play tonight, but if this team wants to make the playoffs (however unlikely it may be), Kipper NEEDS to play and needs to play well. Karlsson has been okay for us overall, but at this point, he simply won't win more games than he loses.

Karlsson should start on Friday regardless of the circumstances, but if Kipper is injured or sick, start Karlsson on Saturday as well. If not, Kipper has to start against the Leafs.

Kipper still gives this team a chance to win more nights than not. You don't want to lose to the Sens or the Leafs.

What did you guys think of Jeff Skinner? All of us 'Canes fans are homers (see the main board 10 page shouting match between us and Sharks fans), so I want another fan bases opinion.

From what I saw he is the real deal, and his point totals are no fluke.

His ice time goes up when he produces, so he better make good use of those 3 shifts a game. Thats the youth modo on this team!

I say Skinner is a keeper, no doubt about it!

And we also lost to the Devils.

Games against Toronto and Ottawa are not just about wanting to beat poorer teams, but the Canadian rivalry that is involved.

When the Flames played the Habs at home a couple years ago, they got scored on early, and in typical fashion, the Habs fans at the Dome starting singing the Ole song. By the end of the game, it was the Flames fans serenading the Canadiens and their fans out of the Dome with a 6-2 win. In terms of a regular season game, it doesn't get better than that.

Did Sutter use Kotes in the shootout?

This team wants to play for Karlsson. Kiprusoff has been ******** the bed lately. I hate ragging on Kiprusoff but he needs to step it up.

A loss is a loss.... big deal. Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Edmonton are pretty brutal right now so it is not a Canadian "rivalry" but more or a lesser of the evils or loser bowls that affect no playoff positioning.

Same boat for me. I don't want to bash on him or anything like that, because he's basically been the team for the past half a decade or so, but he hasn't been very good lately.

I'm sure it would rattle you, I don't know about Backlund though. He's not a child, he's a professional athlete. If he's rattled by getting 5 minutes a night then he's not mentally ready to play bigger minutes with increased expectations either.

We're probably not bad enough to get a lottery pick. There are some god awful teams in the East that we can't possibly pass even if we do start trading some assets. Might as well keep pushing for the playoffs, imo.

In our situation, one in which we have a few very valuable assets to offer to other teams, it's probably not essential for us to get a top 3 or 5 pick anyways. With the return we could get from Iginla, Regehr, and Kipper I won't be crying about not having a lottery pick. Just one really good prospect in a potential Iggy trade could be just as good or better than a top 5 pick.

The Flames are 24th in the league right now and have played more games than everyone below them save Ottawa. The chances of making the playoffs is now at 4.9%, meaning to guarantee a spot, the team would have to play at a 0.731 pace.

The Flames are not making the playoffs this year and any sort of 'miracle' run would only hurt the organization in the long term. We need a top five or even a top ten pick badly, especially given how bad the drafting has been and the fact that we have no 2nd or 3rd round pick (thanks Darryl ).

In any case, with Brent's increasingly moronic coaching tactics, this team is all but guaranteed a lottery pick.
