What do you think would happen if the top line on your team was Lance Bouma, Matt Stajan, and Tim Jackman? Well, you’d get your ass handed to you by the second-worst team in the league. You’d witness the team behind you in 9th place lose, and still knock you out of a playoff spot.
There was a point in this game were the Flames were out-shot by a 3-1 margin at 34-11 after two periods. It was a bad, bad performance all around. Kipper played well for half the game, but alas even he fell apart in the second half of the second period.
Calgary’s top line was a combined -7 last night. Awesome.
