The Flames held their own through two periods, but they must have seen the respective clubs’ records when tied after two during the second intermission. The Flames are 4-6 when tied after 40, the Wings 9-2. Detroit came out to win the game and Calgary played not to lose, and that always ends up with the winners winning and losers losing.
Yes, we’re losers. Deal with it. SportsClubStats has our odds of making the playoffs at a measly 15%, and most-likely in 11th place.
Oh yeah, and Lee Stempniak is also injured. Good thing Matt Stajan returned from his mythical ankle injury!
