I thought it was a pretty complete game from everyone, including Flame backup Henrik Karlsson. Although Columbus didn’t muster much in the way of shots, and it seems like every shot the Flames made in the first period beat Mason. It’s nice to be on the winning side of those bad goals.
Niklas Hagman has really impressed me this season, it just seams like he wants to play and he wants to win. Compared with the play of others who are letting their reputation carry their weight around, Hagman is actually moving his feet and hands quicker than the opposition. Something that Bourque did this game as well, and it was nice to see him get a hat trick with 5 seconds left.
