Hello Hockey fans,

Iginla notches a power play goal with assists from Cammalleri and Phaneuf !

Albeit the Flames lost two games to the Chicago Blackhawks, but their performance overall had been good considering the three overlooked penalties and the goal tender interference being the reason why the Chicago Blackhawks had been able to score in extra time (Game 1).

Despite the good start in Game 2 and the Flames’ efforts to increase their shots on goal, the second loss had been equally disillusioning because of their inability to sustain the two-goal lead. Nevertheless, the Flames still have a chance to tie the series in the forthcoming two games on home ice.

Game 3. Monday, April 20 7:30 p.m. Chicago at Calgary
Game 4. Wednesday, April 22 8:00 p.m. Chicago at Calgary

Of course, the response from the president had been discouraging, but the Flames will have to put these biases aside and focus on their strengths. The keys to Games 3 and 4 will be their defensive fore-checking and their determination not to let go easily. We need bodies to shadow the opponent’s offense (Toews will have to be looked after); and we need the Flames’ offence to hit the target. WE NEED THE FLAMES TO SHOW THEIR BEST….
