Flames 4 – Stars 2

16 Feb

Kinda closer that one would have expected, after the Flames dominated the first period. Dallas had a couple lucky bounces in the second to take the lead (2-1), but the Flames answered before the end of the period from an unlikely goal-scorer Tom Kostopoulos.

Things are pretty tight in the West

But then the goal-scorers became even more unlikely, as Cory Sarich then scored his 3rd of the season, followed by Steve Staios’ 2nd of the year. And let me tell you, a 2-goal scorer doesn’t score pretty goals. Ray Ferraro’s description of Sarich’s shot as a ‘muffin’ was quite accurate.

That moves the Flames into a 5-way tie (yes you read that correctly) for 4th place. But that’s nicer than it sounds, the Flames also remain in eighth.
