And we’re off!
Actually the Flames were off. They took the whole second period off. After a good opening period (riding the momentum of the crowd), Calgary disappeared and had four goals against in the second period. The Flames had just 9 shots through two periods and although scored twice to at least make things interesting in the last few minutes of the game, couldn’t recover from the poor second period.
I thought that Iggy looked fine (although -2 on the night), Glencross, Hagman (before he took a header into the post and Giordano also looked okay for the first game of the season.
Tanguay, Kiprusoff, Jokinen all looked – well – let’s say less-than fine.
