I can’t say this too often, but that was a game that the Flames deserved to lose, yet won. See usually they deserve to lose and they do, or their opponent deserves to lose and they do, or (rarely) the Flames deserve a win and they lose. Got all that? Well, none of that happened last night.
The Flames were up by two goals early, and by some fluke held on for one point – to eventually score in overtime. So why was everyone in the ‘Dome so happy that the Flames only gained one point on a team they are trying to catch? They blew a two-goal lead for Pete’s sake!
Anyway, on to more important stuff. Matt Stajan sat for the second game in a row which can only mean one thing, he’s been traded to Boston for their second round pick in 2011.
BTW Adam Pardy has looked awful since his return from injury. I’ve also updated the current line combinations for all you poolies out there stupid enough to pick a Flame for your fantasy team.
