If that Flames fan had threatened to "bomb" and "shoot" me, I'd have taken him up on it.

One gets the uneasy feeling in the wake of yet another back-to-back debacle (ha!) that the good ship Sutter is starting to list ever so slightly. Or, rather, not slightly at all. Actually, it's pretty obvious we're taking on water here.
The first pin head hole in the hull appeared in February. The Flames looked vulnerable through most of the month due to some offensive struggles and a steadily declining PK that was busy giving up all kinds of quality scoring chances. The club persevered, however, largely on the back of their capable ES play and Miikka Kiprusoff's lone $6.5M-value stretch of games.

Sometimes almost everything can go right and you still come out with a loss. Last night was a bit of a tough one to swallow. It seemed that Calgary dictated flow and pace for much of the game, but simply failed to capitalize on numerous chances and lost to, admittedly, one of the hottest teams in the NHL. It sucks, but it happens.
