What’s on tap: Weds, March 31, 2010

Here we are, game-day number 77 for the Calgary Flames as they get set to take on the Phoenix Coyotes. We all know the situation is dire for the hometown heroes, and yesterday I did up a piece examining the Magic Numbers for the teams Calgary is chasing, and the Elimination Number as it stands…

GDFD 75: Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

If there’s a silver lining to the Flames current predicament, it’s that all anxieties have been removed from the remaining games. No more do Flames fans have to worry about line combinations, injuries, the out-of-town scoreboard, etc. Each game can now be enjoyed as an event unto itself*. Stand out performances can be celebrated in…

Island of despair: Flames done
