Sharks 1 – Flames 0

25 Jan

Awful, just stinking awful.

The Flames had just came off a successful road trip and were facing a tired, injured and not-too-hot San Jose Sharks team. This was the final game, a home game no less, before the All Star break. Calgary was 10-1-1 in their last 12 at home. And what happened? They stunk up the joint!

They could have went into the break just one point out of a playoff spot, one point! But instead… Nashville won, Dallas won, Minnesota won, Phoneix won. Calgary? Didn’t score once. Not once.

On a positive note, Alex Tanguay came back from the super-secret injury that forced him to miss 15 games. And from the ‘nobody cares’ file, Matt Stajan is injured again. At least that is what the organization said, I imagine it’s actually to clear up the cap space so Tanguay can play again.

Here is the situation with the playoff race, which officially begins after All Star Weekend. You have six teams battling for two spots. Six teams within six points of each other. You’d have to guess L.A. is going to make it, but the other spot? That’s up for grabs. Minnesota has fell into a tailspin, Colorado and Dallas has great starts but have cooled off since, and Phoenix? They have no business playing hocking in April.
