Hello Hockey fans,

Ø Moss was recognized for the Ralph Scurfield Humanitarian Award. Congratulations David!

In the 5-3 win on home ice against the Detroit Red Wings, six
Flames players had multiple point nights, as Phaneuf scores his 11th of the season and Aucoin notches his 23rd assist.

Ø Daymond Langkow earned his 600th and 601st career point
Ø Cammalleri notched his 19th power play and gets two assists
Ø Conroy, Glencross and Lundmark get a goal and assist each
Ø Moss pitched in with two helpers

However, it was unusual to see the puck stopped right after the win against the Red Wings. The two straight losses had been shocking and were not in par with the Calgary Flames’ performance. Being shut out twice with almost 15 penalty calls, giving up 3 power play goals and being 0/7 on the power play displayed divergence from the norm. The Flames definitely can do and have been known to do much better than this, as the Canucks are only three points behind in the NW division… Hopefully, the fans can witness them rise again to the occasion with approximately eight games remaining. The forthcoming week encompasses one home game and two road games, of which only two games will be televised on Sportsnet.

In conclusion, the Flames are still 3rd in the western conference and 7th in the league with a total of 92 points. Having played 75 games like their western conference counterparts, they are 43-26-6 with a home and road record that encompasses 25-9-4 and 18-17-2 respectively. No doubt, there were some disillusioning factors in the two losses; but with every loss there are important lessons to be learned. In order to play a play off style hockey, “The Calgary Flames will have to be more determined, aggressively defensive and powerfully offensive”. Of course, the win against the Wild last night was a definite good start and hopefully, it will persevere. On a closing note, Glencross’ performance had been exceptional.

Welcome back, Bertuzzi.

Peter Maher and Mike Rogers will host all these games on the Fan 960.
