Flames played one great period, one decent period and one period like headless chickens. Calgary was sitting back protecting a lead in the third, but they were doing it wrong – the Avs went on a 10-1 chance run and erased almost all of the good work Calgary had done earlier in the game.

To be fair, Calgary was the far better team when the game was tied or within a goal. They outchanced the Avs 12-5 at ES through two and could have been ahead by more if a few pucks didn’t bounce over sticks.

In terms of individual performances, it was a big night for the kid Horak who was on the ice for more than 16 minutes of ice, figured on two Flames goals and was on for a team high 8 chances for. Good stuff (and bad news for Matt Stajan, who hasn’t had a game like that in Flames colors for a long time). On the other end of the spectrum, Rene Bourque somehow managed a two goal game without generating a single chance at ES.

    To be fair I thought Bourque played well. He was hitting, skating well and seemed to be in the play a lot. He took over Glencross’s role well on that line tonight. I thought the team looked well as a whole. The third was getting away from them but they didn’t give up much that kipper wouldn’t be able to stop. The one goal they got bounced off someone in front of the net to the wide open avalanche player. Horak was the best player on the ice. One thing I was disappointed in: the fans. Really quiet, especially considering the flames had like 21 shots in the first and kipper was playing well. We need a little more energy in the dome.

    Kent,

    thanks for all your amazing work giving the very telling tale of a game through scoring chances.

    Tonight, at the game, I was telling my dad that Olli was invisible tonight cause he had been the best offensive player in my opinon thus far. Your stats confirmed that he had an off night!!

    Secondly, Roman Horak was outstanding as with us playing short a forward he was out with ever line combo possible it seemed like, pretty good as a rookie.

    I was curious as to if the bourque awarded goal would be a scoring chance on an open net if he had just skated past the trip and scored.

      • For the team in the lead or for the attacking team? I would be curious to see the scoring chance differential with a goalie pulled versus straight up 5 v 5.

        Also, in due fairness, we had a bit of fun with the media over the Anton Babchuk business in the comments to Kent’s post yesterday. During the pre-game show Mike Rogers did ask Sutter about why Babchuk was benched and what he had to do to be an every day player. Sutter’s answer was a mixture of platitudes and imprecision to the effect that Babchuk had not been doing some things that Sutter was asking player’s to do within the “system” as well as take the big shot from the point on the PP, but get it on net. He had reviewed video with Hartsburg and worked on some of those things, not complained and worked hard and Sutter wanted him back in the line up to see if he was going to be doing those things. Now, I would have followed up by asking if these were positioning, footwork, effort etc. but that’s a quibble.

        I didn’t see the post-game presser. Did anyone follow up by asking if Babchuk had been doing the things worked on with Hartsburg?

    Interesting B.Mo leads the way for forwards in Minutes. With Backlund still out for awhile you would think that the 7 D approach and the rotation of centers through the 4th line generated something that may have been missing. Didn’t Mind guys like Olli B.Mo getting extra over Stajan removal. Extra Rest for D and shared load could be a good choice. However what happens when Backlund comes back?
