It looked as though Calgary was going to get their first win of the season, with only a few minutes left in the game the Flames were nursing a one-goal lead. However it wasn’t meant to be as Tampa scored with three to go and then again in overtime to deny Calgary their first win at home this year.
If there were any positives to take from this game it was that Calgary outshot Tampa in the first period and the game. The Flames gave up a lot of opportunities in the first 30 minutes, but didn’t allow a goal. Ramo was once-again solid in net. Gaudreau was not hurt after falling into the end boards awkwardly after setting up Wideman’s 4th goal of the year. And lastly, Stamkos was invisible in the third period.
If there was a negative to take away from this game, it’s that Stajan returned to the game after taking a shot off the foot. Not that I want anyone to get hurt, I just feel like he could really benefit from watching a couple games from the press box.
