It wasn’t easy and, at times, it wasn’t pretty, but the Calgary Flames have punched their ticket for the Western Conference Semi-Finals.
The Flames advanced to the second round of the post-season, their first such trip since 2004, by virtue of a 4-2 series win over the Vancouver Canucks. They clinched a series win earlier tonight with a 7-4 victory over the Canucks at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
The Flames will face the Anaheim Ducks in the second round. We’ll have more details, breakdowns and schedule information as they become available.
