This was a weird game.

The Flames through the first 40 minutes looked like a team that had already lost the game. They missed passes. They couldn't bury chances. They looked like a team that had their minds on sleeping in their own beds tonight for the first time in two weeks.

And then the third period happened and everything went out the window.

After trailing 4-0 through the first two periods, the Calgary Flames roared back and salvaged a point from one of their most uneven games of the season by way of a 5-4 shootout loss tonight in Ottawa.

FGD #66: The Streaking Senators (5pm MT, City TV)

It's been a long, long road trip - seven games over the better part of two weeks - but the Calgary Flames polish off their behemoth trip tonight in Ottawa with a game against the Senators.

Despite losing their captain (and best player), the Flames have clawed their way to wins in four of their past six games, and the oft-repeated predictions and projections of their playoffs hopes evaporating just haven't come to fruition. There's 17 games remaining on the docket, including tonight, and going a smidge over .500 should be enough to get the Calgary Flames into the post-season.

I'm scared, too.

Puck drops tonight at 5pm MT on City TV (with Paul Romanuk and Mike Johnson) and Sportsnet 960 The Fan (with Derek Wills and Peter Loubardias).
