I can’t believe we’re going to win this game, up by two, five minutes to go, this is great! Wait, don’t take that penalty, or that one… but wait! we’ve killed that one off, and that one! And now the puck is out of our zone with five seconds to go — we’re going to win!!! Oh crap. Two on one with 3.2 seconds to go, and Detroit scores. How do you let that happen? Giordano? He went right through you? Charlie Simmer was right, tackle that guy! There is only 5 seconds left in the game!
Of course when the Flames blew a two-goal third-period lead, then took penalty after penalty, then got scored on with 3.2 seconds left in the game… I don’t really need to add that the Red Wings scored in overtime to make this fragile team look pathetic. Once again. I’m getting used to this.
So who was hot and who was not (Flames-wise?): Iggy showed up for the first two period, Kipprusof was great, except for on the 3rd Red Wing goal. Giordano and Hagman also played well for the first two periods. Then like the rest of the team – tried to kill the remaining 10 minutes of the game.
