It’s going to sound old, but the Flames won again in spite of Adam Pardy. Is it just me or is this guy the cause of at least one goal against per game? Pardy pinches, gets there late, and it’s a 2-on-1 the other way.
For some reason there always seems to be one guy who you cringe when they get the puck or jump over the boards.That guy for me used to be Olli Jokinen, then it became Curtis Glenncross(bar), and now – without a doubt – it’s Adam Party.
But since that makes me sound negative, I’m going to end with the fact that the Flames won six in a row. And as of this morning the standings (yes I know there is too much time in the season to start looking) look like nothing I’ve ever seen before. With about 30 games to go, there are 3 points separating 4th place and 11th place. Eight teams separated by 3 points, that’s parity. And Colorado is two points back of that pack, with two games in hand. Theoretically they could win two games in a row and move from 12th place to 4th.
