The Flames seemed too slow to forecheck, and the Hawks cannot be sucked in to the gritty game that Calgary (apparently) used to call ‘it’s style.’ Maybe the bounces just aren’t going their way, or maybe this is how good this team is – a .500 hockey team.
I can’t recall a single good goal off the rush all year, and I certainly have no confidence in the power-play. Although I don’t know how you’re going to solve it either, Turris? I doubt it.
The only interesting note about this game is that Jay Feaster’s “comeback kid of the year” Nik Hagman has been sent to the minors.
