I can’t say I remember if I’ve written this season that Miikka Kiprusoff won a game on his own, but that’s exactly what happened last night. The Flames had a good start to the game, but then spent half the first and all of the second giving Colorado odd-man rushes and rebounds a-plenty.
The win keeps the Flames’ very, very faint playoff hopes alive for one more day. Chicago has back-to-back games against the Wings, so that’s the two games in hand they have. Calgary needs Detroit to sweep that, plus have either St. Louis or Montreal beat the Hawks in one of those two remaining games. PLUS, the Flames need Colorado to win their games against Dallas to keep them 2 points behind. We need the Avs to win two games in a row? Uh oh.
