The Flames could help themselves win if they could muster enough desire to skate with young blood. Colorado doesn’t really boast a bonafide star. Sure, maybe Hedjuk is in the mix, but he’s washed up….kinda of like Jarome Iginla.
Why the Flames lost tonite?
Simply put, poor defense, and poor rebound control. Henrik Karlson got his second start and surrendered 6 goals. Almost all of them were a result of poor rebound control. Calgary managed to pot 5 goals on their own, but the captain is still MIA. When’s he going to find his game? Right now he’s literally afraid to go to the net and his only play is to button hook at the blue line and shoot wide. Lame.
Look for the Flames to rebound strong Saturday against Washington.
