Face-offs

Not much to say about this one. Nine times out of ten when you outshoot and outchance the bad guys to the degree the Flames did this evening, you win. Calgary was the better team by a fair margin through the first two periods, but Backstrom's net-minding and the Flames penchant for shooting pucks wide hurt them in the end. It also didn't help that Kipper allowed Madden's gut-punch goal from the corner in the third.

This game highlights the difficulty of the Flames current position in the standings: sometimes, even when you outplay the bad guys, you lose. Unfortunately, the club doesn't have the luxury of giving up points to WC opponents for any reason at this point. Every loss, however undeserved, is another blow to their ever fading playoff hopes.

Well said, Ken. On the flip-side, if you can't beat the Wild on two separate occasions while fighting for your playoff lives, then you might as well raise the white flag. The Flames will be on the outside looking in yet again.

Might not be a bad thing for the long-term prospects of this club.

Bottom line is we need a couple of "real" fine hands scorers. We are missing some finesse guys around the net. We don't have enough guys that can be around the net and finish the plays. Look at all the shots we have on the nets and no goals. Let's get a trade going and get a couple of guys that can put a puck in the net not just get a shot on goal. We may have to give somebody up but them's the price you have to pay for a successful team.....

Kent,

Fully agree with all your analysis tonight...heard most of the game on the radio and it sounded like the Flames dictated the play (especially Periods 1 & 2). However, tonight's game for me essentially sums up the Flames for the last 4-5 years - for whatever reason they lack "FINISH"...I do not know enough about Hockey to determine how this can be rectified - it is the $64,000 pyramid question?? Instinctively, though, I feel it is a mixture of talent and coaching (insert double Sutter facepalm here). I will leave it at that because "Lawrence" already 'rapped' my wrists last week for being overly dour on the Flames and bringing nothing constructive to the conversation.

Go Flames Go!!

@the forgotten man

Hey, hey, now. I think everyone is disappointed with the current situation, and I don't mean to express that we aren't allowed to BE disappointed.

You felt that the wins that Calgary rang up were meaningless, and perhaps they are now, especially in light of back-to-back losses to the Wild.

I was only trying to illustrate that it isn't as simple as "Oh, so what, we lost to the good teams and we beat the bad ones."

Nearly every team in the league falls into that situation, whether they are in first or last. However, losing two to the Wild in my mind is the other 30% (division rival, standings rival).

I'm not exactly brimming with positivity just now either, but a win is a win... and a loss a loss. Unfortunately we have way to many of the latter.
