Calgary calls up their only promising prospect, Sven Bärtschi

07 Mar

With Jackman now out, yes another one, the Calgary Flames have resorted to calling up players from the WHL. Sven Bärtschi, 19, has 33 goals and 61 assists in 47 games.

Why, you ask? Look at this list of injured players:

That is two full lines. Matt Stajan was the number one centre last night… MATT STAJAN!

Flames 5 – Les Habitants 4

07 Mar

That was a pretty fun game to be at, although it seemed like it would once again follow the pattern of the last few weeks. Flames score first, play a crappy period, then fight back to tie it in the third, only to lose in overtime or a shootout. On this night, the Flames scored first, two actually, and had a 2-1 lead going into the second period.

Iggy’s first goal of the game was a beaut. I don’t think anyone thought he kept the puck with him as he made the defenseman look foolish. Unfortunately since the cameras are on the same side as he was, you can’t see it on the highlights.

Then Kiprusoff gave up a real softy to tie the game at 2. It looked like Calgary was going to lose the momentum after that. But goals by Girodano and Iginla put the Flames up by 2, and then – to even out the goalie gaffes – Price made a nice pass right to Glencross for the eventual game winner.

“I just kind of got it and shot it,” Glencross said. “I didn’t want to waste any time. It was a pass where he put it right on my tape so I was lucky enough to be able to shoot it right away.”

Big win, over the last place (in the East) Montreal Canadiens. But only one point was gained in the standings, because everyone else won as well. Five teams, three points, two spots. Fifteen games to go.
