And the domination of the Avs continues.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say something that I say every year right before the Flames dive into an unrecoverable tailspin away from the post-season… I’m excited for the Edmonton game on Saturday because it actually means something. Shocking, isn’t it?
You see, if the Flames win on Saturday they will pass the Oilers in the standings. The ‘look-at-how-good-we-are-now-Feaster‘ Oilers. It would move them into a 3-way tie with Nashville and Los Angeles for 9th, and it would (albeit temporarily and hypothetically) put them one point out of a playoff spot.
I’m not going to mention that there are seven teams within four points of each other, battling for two playoff spots. And a couple teams, namely San Jose and Los Angeles, should be playoff teams. And to move up four points, you have to win four games. That’s just how it seems to work.
