That was one of the more entertaining regular season games I’ve seen in quite some time. Columbus was fighting for their lives (pretty much) just like St. Louis was in their back-to-back games against Calgary. And the Flames won when they had to, something you haven’t seen in a while from this team. Years actually.
Anyway, the game. Two penalty shots stopped by Kipper, who won this game for them. Rick Nash did everything he possibly could to help his team, but just couldn’t solve the Kipernator. I thought Russel also had a heck of a game for the Blue Jackets. But the better game was had by the likes of Olli Jokinen (no jokin’), Glenn Crossbar, and the captain – who is playing as good now as I can remember in the past few years.
Next up? Nashville, in yet another crucial game for the Flames.
