Another blown lead. And the Flames get 2 out of a possible 8 points on their 4-game home stand at a critical part of the year.
Now I actually agree with Sutter that this is a tough stretch, and they’ll have to work through it. No one thought that they would go 23-0 in the final 23 games. The only thing I’d be upset with is that Calgary vowed to shoot more in this game – they had 3 shots in the second period. Feaster said that he – now – has confidence in this group to make the playoffs, and with the loss last night their playoff odds drop to 25% from 50% when they were actually in a playoff position (for 3 days).
I think that Al did something at the ceremony to ensure his team won. He’s probably mad because we didn’t retire his number. I’m mad for him.
