Losers Yet Again: Calgary 1 – Columbus 2 (OT)

We know the Flames are terrible, but they used to compete. There was a drive to their game that was exciting.

Boring games, little to talk about, no storylines, no players stepping up, although perhaps the best save we’ll see this season courtesy of Reto Berra, but other than that–snore.
