That was as close to losing a game as you can get – losing a game in regulation that is. Not only were the Flames out-shot, and were once again desperately defending a thrid-period lead, but the Blues had a goal called back (high-stick) and Patrik Berglund rang one off both posts late in the game. One shot, two posts. It doesn’t get much closer than that. Actually I wonder if anyone had hit both posts and the crossbar before? Let’s ask Google.
Yup, whattaya know. Victor Stålberg did it, he hit both posts and the crossbar. Check out Victor Stalberg and the ‘hat trick of iron’
After visiting the Blues site I see that Brad Boyes has been traded to Buffalo and remembered that the trade deadline is today! I also learned that last night was the first time that St. Louis had been shut out in 111 games. That’s impressive.
I’ll post anything I hear Flames-wise regarding trades as soon as I hear the slightest rumour of them.
