hey how do you guys have 2 pages in your game day right now? Are there not a lot of flames fans on hfboards? Are they mostly on another site?
Calgarypuck and even the official Flames board have a lot of GDT traffic; hfboards is more about talking about the league in general or your team with people who will offer differing opinions; team-based forums tend to be a bit on the cheerleader side of things. Not that that doesn't happen here too, but it balances itself lol
Just got home from the game. I thought we outplayed them for the first two periods, but a brutal line change off the top and we're chasing the rest of the game. Thomas made some great saves and we hit a few bars, so the effort was there.
Can't win them all, and better to lose to an EC team. Just beat SJ on Friday and all will be good.
Flames played their hearts out last night and came up short to a team with more talent, speed, and size. Boston's additions make them a true contender and Calgary shouldn't feel to bad about losing because that game could have gone either way. If that cross bar hit would have went in it would have been a different outcome.
If anything this game goes to show that Calgary can compete with the best in the league. We need back-to-back wins and this will all look better a week's end.
