“The Ducks are bigger, and the Flames can’t handle them. That’s why they lost.”

Well… yes, and no. The Ducks are a bigger team: this is a fact. The Flames are not currently able to handle the Ducks: this is also a fact. But correlation does not equal causation.

The Flames’ problem isn’t that the Ducks are a bigger team.

FGD Round 2, Game 3: Must Win (7:30pm MT, SN West)

After a rough pair of outings in the Honda Center in Orange County that saw them out-scored by a 9-1 margin, the Calgary Flames return home to the friendly confines of the Scotiabank Saddledome tonight for a game that's as must-win as any they've faced this season.

A win, and their Western Conference Semi-Final series with the Anaheim Ducks is made closer, and become s a narrow 2-1 lead for the Ducks. A loss, and the series becomes a 3-0 Ducks stranglehold and the brooms come out for Friday's Game 4 at the 'Dome.

The noose isn't yet tightening around the Flames' neck, but the carpenters are beginning to construct the gallows. A win tonight slows their progress.

The puck drops after 7:30pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan!
