Matt Freakin Ragin Stajan Pots Winner: Caglary 3 – San Jose 2 (OT)

With only a dozen games left, and the Flames by my count only capable of losing four more, the upcoming schedule can’t get any more favorable for the Flames. Or to put another way, the chances of the post-season rest squarely on the final 12 games as the Flames only play teams they’re racing for the final few playoff spots.

One of those teams is SJ now sit tied with 78 points in the Western Conference. Calgary needed a win just to stay in contention with the likes of LA, Colorado, SJ, and Phoenix.

The FLames, despite missing 7 regular forwards, need unsung heroes to step up, and they’re getting help the right times.

Fast Paced Affair Leads to Victory: Calgary 5 – Winnipeg 3

The Jets came to town. Years in the making the Winnipeg Jets returned to Calgary and with them came a multitude of fans. Something about the atmosphere in the rink and the torrid pace of Eastern Conference teams coming to the ‘Dome made for an exciting evening. Other than a mental breakdown late in the first period Calgary largely dominated the game; they also cashed in on a strong PP.

First start to Tanguay for his 4 point night….Flames are now 1 point out of 8th yet SJ has 2 games in hand. By my count they can only lose 4 more in the last 14. Go FLames…..

Depleted Lineup Beats Montreal: Calgary 5 – Habs 4

Surprisingly Montreal came into Calgary the worst team in the league–and the Flames barely beat them. Things aren’t looking good. Jackman out with an injury (not that he was a goal scoring machine), so that essentially means two full lines from the AHL come Friday when the Jets come to town. Should be a great game, but one that the Flames are going to hard pressed to win given the rash of injuries.

Another Quality Loss: Calgary 1 – Dallas 2 (SO)

When the Flames fail to make the post-season yet again they can surely blame man-game lost. They lead the NHL by a long shot. Tonight another two players out, Bouma and Comeau. Not that they’re contributors offensively, but it still adds up. ALl that to say, secondary scoring is non-existant on this team. In close games that’s the difference, which is every game down the stretch.

With the likes of, well, every other team in the final 7&8 playoff position race playing hot, the Flames are cooling to a freezing temperature incapable of winning games when it matters most.

It’s done. Calgary can only lose 4 more games in the last 16. Fat chance.

You off the bandwagon yet?

Can’t win in Anaheim: Calgary 2 – Ducks 3

Three word game review: heartbreaking Anaheim loss.

Calgary won’t make the playoffs this year (can only lose maybe 4-5 more games in the last 17) because they can’t beat the likes of NYI, Columbus, and Anaheim. It’s that simple (well actually there are many other reasons why, but these are a few).

Season is slipping away fellas, find ANOTHER gear or it’s the end.

Almost Lost: Calgary 4 – Phoenix 2

What’s with the ability of the Calgary Flames to blow huge leads gift wrapped to them in the first period of play? They have a knack at one thing, inconsistency, and now one other–blowing first period leads. They almost did it again after a first period ‘explosion’ of three goals. Lead by a fired up captain (I guess 1 out of every 3 games is not bad….) they Flames with new line combos came out swinging.

Not Again. Flames 4 – Flyers 5 (SO)

Will Feaster Blow it Up?

The worst lead in hockey is any lead the Flames have. After the GM went public with his displeasure with the non-existent intensity in Calgary’s game the team responded with much of the same, if not worse. Threatening whole sale changes in the midst of playoff run, Jay Feaster seemed ready to pull the trigger if Calgary didn’t fix their game. They haven’t. Will he stay true to his word?

Offensively, Matt Stajan is the #1 threat. But before he got going the Flames were gift wrapped 3 goals. That’s a 3-0 lead squandered. Worse than Pheonix two nights ago. MIA was the top line yet again. Curtis Glencross is not the answer coming back from injury. Things are so bad (getting worse) Calgary couldn’t even muster 22 shts on goal thru 3 periods. Philly shot 45.

Another Lazy Loss: Calgary 3 – Phoenix 4 (SO)

Three word game review: pathetic second period.

You know how many people care about hockey in Phoenix? 7.

You know how many players on the Flames give a damn in a playoff race? 3. And Matt Stajan is one of them. How bad is that?

Calgary took the second period off in a game that should’ve been gift wrapped for them. Instead, they squandered two valuable points, gave the team in front of them two unnecessary points, and have no answer for their pathetic lazy play.
