I’ll take the one point in this game. The Flames were outplayed, especially in the third, and had to come back form 1-0 and 2-1 deficits. If it wasn’t for back-to-back power plays with five minutes left in the third Dallas would have won in regulation.
The single point means that Calgary is now two points back of Phoenix, which is okay because Phoenix is now in 7th place, and Calgary is 2 points back of L.A. for eighth. Got all that? This now means that the L.A. game Saturday night is a bigger game than the Dallas one was.
