First of all, this game was probably one of the most boring games I’ve watched in a long time. Even thought Kipper got a shutout, and the Flames won in overtime. Mark Giordano returned after missing 21 games, assisted on Blair Jones’s first goal as a Flame, which was good to see. Gio also played over 21 minutes in his first game back.
