Post-Game: Sabres Stifle Flames

It was bound to happen eventually, but the shoe is on the other foot now as the Calgary Flames out-played and out-shot the Buffalo Sabres by a hefty margin, but dropped a 4-3 road loss in upstate New York. As a result, the Flames are on their worst losing string of this season - at three.

Sure puts things in perspective, eh?

Despite putting a tire factory of rubber at Jhonas Enroth this evening, the Sabres netminder kept his team in it. At the other end, pucks just found their way past Karri Ramo via a combination of wonky defense and nice shooting by the Sabres forwards.

It's the first of back-to-backs for the Flames with Tomorrow's game against Comeau and Co. in Pittsburgh. Man, that's gonna be such a great game, I can't wait to see all those stars play against the Flames. Wow, I wonder if the Flames will be able to skate with them (I'm pretty sure 50% of of d corps cannot btw). Yeah, Pittsburgh is sure gonna be a fun one. 

Wait, who are they playing tonight,,,? Buffalo?! Oh no. 

As the Rt. Hon. Ackbar so presciently observed. This is indeed a trap.

Five things: Another NCAA prospects review

1. Some good news

So in the last several days, I had a chance to see five of Calgary's six NCAA prospects live and in person, which was a nice treat. I took in a pair of Boston University games this past weekend, and got an eyeful of Brandon Hickey, and then on Tuesday had a chance to see Providence College (Mark Jankowski, Jon Gillies, John Gilmour) take on Colgate (Tim Harrison). Would that Michigan State (Matt DeBlouw) had been in town, but I guess we'll have to settle.

You'll recall that last week I talked about the progression so far this season for Jankowski and Gillies, and what I saw in Tuesday's game really continued both those trends for me.
