Pathetic Effort by Calgary Flames

Three word game review. Pathetic. Lazy. Embarrassing.

Kiprusoff Steals Two points, Flames in Playoff Position: Calgary 1 – LA 0

Recording his 4th shutout of the season, Miikka Kiprusoff back stopped the Flames to victory giving the team their first playoff position for over a year (and first this season). Sitting alone in 8th thanks to timely saves… Read More

Flames Drop Point in Dallas: Calgary 2 – Dallas 3 (SO)
