This game was frustrating to watch, like the last one. But I missed the first half of the game as I was on my way to Edmonton. It scares me to think that the Flames are only 4 points up on a team (the Oil) that gets blown out every other night and is in the second year of their rebuilding phase. That tells me that we’ve avoided rebuilding for two years for those mesely four points. We’ve missed out on first-round picks for those four points. We’ve no future, and we have four points to show for it. Sad.

I’m doing this late because I just got back into town. Flames sucked, what else do you need to know?
I shut the game off after it was 5-2. And I heard later that the Flames scored twice in the final couple minutes to make it interesting. Actually, to be clear, to make the final three minutes interesting. Because the first 57 minutes were boring as hell.
So for the first time in 10 games the Flames didn’t score first, and for the first game in five, they actually won. The Flames scored three times in the third, which is very unlike them.
The downside? Jarome Iginla has two goals this year. That ranks him 7th on the Flames in that category and tied for 186th in the league. Tied with folks you’ve never heard of, like Frans Nielsen, Rostislav Olesz, Darroll Powe and Craig Conroy. Yikes.

For the ninth straight game, the Flames scored first. For the fourth straight game, they lost. I don’t know what else to say?
Yeah, Niklas Backstrom was good, but so was Kipper. And Jarome Iginla can not catch a break. Nice to see Moss back, but now Curtis Glencross is out with something.
Hey Flames, good thing you’re now heading out on the road for most of the month – frankly, we’re glad to get rid of ya.
So here is how this worked, the Flames scored first. Again. Then they gave up a couple, again. But this time they just lost, instead of being embarrassed before losing. Maybe that is a step in the right direction.
But I’m trying to be more positive, so here it is. Kipper was great. Moss looked good in his first game back. Jokinen and Bouwmeester weren’t the worst players on the ice. All that… positive. The pessimist in me would have pointed out that the Flames went from third in the conference, to 11th in four games. But I’m not going to do that.
