Calgary 0 – San Jose 1

Quite simply lack of offence killed the Flames tonight. Their lack of offence is evident as well. The largest problem is down the middle. As we get healthy on the wings there’s a clear chasm between Jokinen and then everyone else below him. We have a second line center in Jokinen, then three other fourth line guys.

The good news is Calgary is close to contending which sets up for an interesting stretch run. They are in the exact same place this year as they were last. So anything can happen.
