Defence Falters – Playoffs Questionable

Calgary may miss the playoffs, and four straight losses on this brief road trip could mean the end. What’s worse, Calgary came into Atlanta and dominated the first period. It makes sense, considering the team had a slow start yesterday it’s only fitting they would start fast today. Calgary went up 3-0 early but a couple of defensive mistakes gave Atlanta life in a span of a minute.

Calgary gave up a 3 goal lead and ended up losing 6-4. Iginla had two goals but was yet again overshadowed by another star, this time Kovalchuk’s hat-trick. Joseph gave up fat rebounds all game and, well, let in six goals. The Flames will literally be out of the playoffs by the time they get home if a consistent all around effort isn’t recorded. They get a chance to right the ship in Chicago on Sunday.
