Flames 4 – Blues 1

26 Jan

A couple strange stats out of this one. The Flames’ powerplay went 2 for 3 and had one shot. Calgary was outshot 12-4 in the second period but outscored St. Louis 2-0. But it can’t go unmentioned how well Kiprusoff played in the game, in his 500th NHL game.

So the Flames go into the All-Star break on a four game winning streak, which is still four games away from the ‘eight games (in a row) to get to eighth’ prediction from a week ago. I’m taking full credit for that.

So where do you go from here? We’re a month away from the trading deadline, and we’re a ways from the playoffs. I’m not excited for four wins in a row, but only because the Flames have done enough damage to themselves in the first half of the season. Too little, too late.

Conroy clears waivers, let’s see what the girls think

26 Jan

Conroy said – after clearing waivers – that  “I gotta talk to my girls. I just don’t think going down (to the minors) is an option.”

It’s not an option Conny, because the AHL is no place for a 39-year-old. A 39-year-old who’s hoping for injuries to his friends to get back to the show. Plus you’ve gotta think that even then he’s number 3 in line behind some prospects who need some NHL minutes.

I’m glad to see he got his 1000 games, and that he got to retire a Flame. But it’s time.

In other news… did you know that Anton Babchuk registers one hit every 85.5 minutes? Brutal. That’s good enough for the worst average in the league.
