Determination pays off as the Flames strive for five to keep the fanâ€™s hopes alive. Combating the Boston Bruins with a 3-2 win had been awesome and the significance of this win encompasses that with the two points earned, the Flames aer now tied with Minnesota for the 3rd position in the Northwest division. Congratulations Flames on your accomplishments.
Facts: Phaneuf, Cammallerie & Boyd were triumphant in directing the puck into the net. Flames outshot the Bruins 38-31 and Kipper made 29 saves. Flames were successful in notching two power play goals
With the niceties in place, the Flames have a 2-2-0 record on the road and their next battle starts against the Los Angeles Kings who are 2-3-1 at home. Point wise, the Kings are sitting at 7 points with one game in hand. Although their power play (15.22%) is lower than that of the Flames, their penalty killing ranks 87.80%, which will make scoring on the power play slightly difficult for the Flames. So, at its worst, the Flames will have to rely on their best 5 on 5â€™s.
Nonetheless, stats are just variables that can change according to a teamâ€™s performance and one can only anticipate that the boys are motivated to keep the Flame burning â€“ the rest depends on what happens after the refs drop the puck on center ice.
Glue your eyes to CBC, NHLN US on Saturday November 1st, at 8:00 pm MT. The usual voice of the Flames, Peter Mahar and Mike Rogers will be aired on The Fan 960.
– Slow and steady wins the race!
