Post Game: Everyone Went To St. Louis

April 02 2013 08:22AM




The Flames, well they phoned it in tonight. Given that they've shed nearly $14 million in salary in the past week and are poised to cast off even more, perhaps it's understandable that the Flames never arrived tonight for their tilt with their provincial rivals up north. The end result is, uh, unflattering, as the Edmonton Oilers coasted to a 4-1 victory over our heroes, and somehow made DEVAN DUBNYK look like a capable goaltender, which we all know in our hearts that he isn't.

Unfortunately for you, and with even less of an excuse for things being the way they are then youer Calgary Flames, we here at Flames Nation are also guilty of phoning it in, as we all fled from FN headquarters to witness the slaughter down at the Tilted Kilt tonight, and I'm the one who drew the short straw to recap a game we all only half paid attention to.

So this should go great.
