Franchise Record 10 in a Row – Calgary 4 – Pittsburgh 3 (SO)

I would’ve been happy with a point. Outplayed at times, the Flames got into penalty trouble, repeatedly, yet somehow dug down deep to pull off a franchise record 10 straight wins. They needed a shoot-out to complete the feat, but when you’re riding a hot goalie, anything’s possible (even with Dennis Wideman playing minutes in the final minute of the game….)

This game wowed the hometown crowd, chalk full of superstardom, hits, big plays, and clutch performances, something we’ll get to see more of come playoff time. Where the Flames wind up in the standings is anybody’s guess, but I’ll go out ‘on a limb’ and say they’ll be in the post-season. Right now they sit 2nd in the Division. Can they hold on? They’re playing awesome hockey, peaking at the right time, but they’ll need to round out their game in order to maintain consistency, and every win is a step in that direction.

  1. Winning the *Krystal sparkle* way…demonstrates the Flames consistency in finding ways to win…Indeed, the contest was significantly challenging considering that the opposition encompassed the defending Stanley cup champions…and hence the tying goal Crosby style. But noteworthy was the overtime penalty kill, which could have landed the home team with a point only, but didn’t… Kris Versteeg and Brian Elliot ensured that! The goals scored by two of the Flames blue liners – Dennis Wideman and Deryk Engelland was another character demonstrating the team’s contributory efforts coming from all direction…….every one played a key role in doing whatever it takes to accomplish goals.
