I think something has finally snapped in me.
For over thirty years I have cheered, celebrated and supported the team on the north end of the QE2.
I’ve followed them through ups and downs and then what was supposed to be a whole lot more up.
But the up never came. In fact, it seemed my team found new and previously unexplored depths.
Like a stone washed by a thousand thousand tides, I have been worn thin by the relentless drudgery of my hockey team.

If there are any players the Flames should be interested in, it's definitely goalies. So to hear that they're seeking the services of Alex Lyon - the highly sought-after junior Yale goalie who is foregoing his senior year - is of no surprise.
If they can get him will be another story. But for an organization that's awfully low on goaltending options, Lyon could be a really great get.
CGY trying hard to sign FA Yale goalie Alex Lyon. They're not alone, but haven't been told they're out of the running.— Damien Cox (@DamoSpin) April 1, 2016

So. The Calgary Flames didn't get as destroyed as they did against Anaheim, but they still didn't have a particularly good game. Though they did not deserve the shutout - that Mikael Backlund goal was legit, you can tell by the way Jonathan Quick didn't even have a temper tantrum - they were still thoroughly outplayed.
But their goalie kept them in it.
That's not really been a common theme of this season, exactly.

Not a great 48 hrs for the Flames. Though, it is a testament to the dreck that the Flames subjected viewers to last night that tonight's fairly timid 3-0 loss felt almost kind. The Flames dropped games on back to back nights by a combined score of 11-3. Someday, the Flames will have to figure out how to compete with these pacific division teams on a regular basis but alas, that was not tonight, nor will it be this season.
