For a second straight game the Flames shut out the Blues. And it happened in a gush of goals in the third, five goals to define ‘gush.’ In eight shots. I guess tall doesn’t always equal good in the goaltending department.
I’m really surprised that we didn’t see more out of St. Louis last night, because this was their last legitimate chance to make a run for the playoffs. It seemed like after Bishop gave up that second goal they all collectively agreed that their season was over. That’s it. Show’s over. Everybody please leave.
And as incredible as this streak is, they are only an Anaheim two-game winning streak away from 11th. I know, I should be more positive.
Speaking of positive coverage, did you see the story about the Flames on the Onion?
Speaking of negaitve coverage, did you hear how TSN and the NHL are not allowing SportsNet to broadcast the first 30 minutes of the Flames game tonight?
