every game, every night is so important now. Really interesting to see where the pieces fall, so little separates the 6 or so teams in the west fighting for a spot. We won tonight and looks like we wont nudge anywhere on the standings, LA and Minny both got points...
That had to be been some of the worst ice I have ever seen in a pro rink.Flames keep on rollin'. They look like a whole different team now than what we saw in the first half.
Wow...I couldn't get over it either that was brutal. Also how many times did stripes get in the way of the puck down low in the corners. It was one of those games that whoever got the 2 points is lucky. Very solid and consistent effort again.
Backlund was huge after his neutral zone flub. He is the first forward back and makes a diving poke check at a very critical point in the game. This kid is for real, the offense will come, but how many kids his age are making those savvy defensive plays? Not many.
Sarich made up for a weaker game, with a nice hit and a sweet pinch for the late tying goal.
I love Tanguay on this team and hope he re-ups with us. Watching him pass is best described in the words of Peter Loubardias "An absolute pleasure to watch".
I've been saying all along that this team needs to win six in a row. If they do that, they are definitly a team to make the playoffs imo.
