After bottoming out a couple of weeks ago, the Flames have been on a nice little run recently. The level of competition was set up for Calgary to collect some points, so it’s good news that’s exactly what they’ve done. The run of weak sisters ends tonight in Vancouver though.
Calgary looked like an honest-to-god NHL squad in Edmonton on Saturday which has been more exception than rule for the club early this year. I’ve mentioned a couple of times that the Flames weren’t 13th in the west bad and to expect a bit of a turn around at some point. Out-playing the lesser lights is a good step in that direction. I still don’t think they can hang with the big boys consistently, but at least they haven’t completely fallen offt he wagon just yet.
