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.
