There were few positives in this game as the Calgary Flames took another step back in their development. Right now, this team is this year’s Edmonton Oilers. Fans will be making gifs of 5 Flames players watching the puck like idiots and Capitals potting goal after goal. Here is tonight’s vignette.

  • Will a real goaltender please standup? This situation is terrible and both goalies are playing poor hockey. Maybe it’s a goaltending coach problem? Put Ortio in and find out. Doesn’t help the head coach will keep playing them out of ‘loyalty’. Ya, that worked great with Sutter, remember those years?
  • Dougie Hamilton is a total and complete bust. Maybe he’ll find his game, but the season will be over by then.
  • Offence is a huge problem and the Flames can’t generate scoring chances or possession. Just abysmal yet again.
  • Hartley continues his love for Brandon ‘Big Money’ Bollig. Raymond sat tonight as Colbourne factored in. Bollig…..unreal.

That about wraps up this game. The Flames will head on a road trip against the East and have a chance to right the ship, or sink even further….
