So the streak ends at 6, at least it didn’t end with a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of a Chicago or Vancouver. Let’s have a look and see what a 7-1-2 (last 10) record can do for you in the standings. That’s 16 points in 10 games, and it moved the Flames from 14th place to 10th. That spread? Five points. Sixteen points to move up five. Ouch.
So although I still don’t think the Flames will make the playoffs, this does make for more interesting games. Next up? Chicago. A team the Flames historically suck against, who sits just one point back of Calgary and two points out of a playoff spot. So you know they’ll be ready to go!
