The Flames can ill afford to drop points against ‘NHL’ hockey clubs like the sad Edmonton Oilers. The Flames have to play better than .700 (3 losses) in the remaining eleven games if they have any hope on making the playoffs…..what they can’t do it drop the games against sub.500 teams. Expect major changes to the lineup after this loss. FRom netminder (no more Leland Irving please, he’s subpar) to forward ranks, the Flames will get a much needed shake up and hopefully some help in the secondary scoring category.

A MUST win against another junky team Sunday vs. the Blue Jackets. Better make it two points boys or…. well, no point beating a dead horse.
