Ducks 4 – Flames 2

31 Mar

Remember that time when we could have won the Cup, but the goal was not reviewed?

Well last night was not nearly as important a game as that one was, but the Flames’ season was riding on getting a regulation win against Anaheim.

Here is the breakdown from TSN regarding the non-goal that would have tied the game at twos.

Ryan Getzlaf denied hiding the puck, but of course he’s going to… I would. We all would.

But what bothers me most is that there was no call on the ice, the rule is that you need conclusive video evidence to overturn the call on the ice. But there wasn’t a call on the ice. Gord Dwyer just put his hands in the air. I’m pretty sure that’s not a signal. That’s politely asking everyone around to just calm down a moment, I’ve got to think.

And no video evidence will ever be conclusive enough to be able to overturn incompetence.

    Stajan should have been awarded that goal … just for the fact that he rarely ever gets any puck close to crossing the line, and that alone should be rewarded!!!

    But Stajan’s non-goal is a mute point, the Flames can’t beat the Ducks at all this year and they can’t beat the Wild or Coyotes either … teams with much less talented players … and teams that they need to beat to be a contender.

    The Flames work hard, but the chemistry needs to change significantly before next September. Other than that amazing 30-game stretch — which now seems like some surreal, distant dream — this veteran-laden team clearly can’t beat the teams that they need to beat.
