Face-offs

A pretty solid night all around for the Flames. Like a lot of wins recently Calgary didn't dominate or anything, but they didn't give up much and suppressed a pretty good team at both ES and on the PP. Most of the Flames trios up front were strong, although the 4th unit isn't as good with Jackman playing elsewhere. That said, Bouma and Backlund hooked up for a pretty nice opening marker. I'd like to again add that I hope Ivanans isn't hurt too badly but also never plays another game as a Flame. The club finished marginally underwater in terms of possession, but that had almost everything to do with the Hawks chasing for thr final 10 minutes of the third.

The first line had an adequate night, although they mostly faced Bolland and Pisani. Jokinen had his best game in recent memory, playing against some big guns and not looking horribly out of his weight class. He hit a post on the PP and it was his play through the neutral zone that led to the Glencross GWG.

Flames are rolling right now. This is probably the peak we can expect from this roster, so let's enjoy it.

Good analysis, Kent. Yep, this is the "peak" or best the Flames can perhaps muster, but, man, it's pretty damn competitive hockey. L.A. and Chicago have both been playing great hockey the last ten games -like the Flames- but Calgary was able to finish with a slight edge against the Kings in a gruelling duel, and outplayed the blackhawks tonight.

They are slowly becoming what they were meant to be by design: a team that is able to win one goal games without dominating or getting dominated. The chances for and against will be roughly similar on a daily basis, barring obvious anomalies that will occur during the season, but the team is finally evincing a "system" that allows them to be able to muster that extra goal or get the game into extra time.

A fragile team will lose those one goal games, and luck in bounces will obviously figure prominently in such close games, but Calgary has shown in the last 18 games that they are capable of marginally generating more offense than their foes by adhering to a system that promotes tight-checking, physical play coupled with a determination to drive to the net.

Better special teams are also a huge reason for our late surge. Still not sold on the team, but I gotta admit that the Flames have proven me wrong by showing that they are not an over-the-hill, uninspired hockey team. They have shown grit and passion over the last few weeks.
