Coyotes 4 – Flames 0

20 Feb

Wow did that game ever suck.

I’m not sure I’ve seen a more boring game than that one, not this year for sure. I found myself fast forwarding through the second period, mainly to keep myself from falling asleep. The best part of this game was Danny Taylor playing a solid two periods, but then he kind of fell apart in the third. Calgary just didn’t have any chances or energy, it was really a sad effort all ’round.

The loss means Calgary is 4 points back of the final playoff spot. So by my count they need to rattle off four games in a row to see some headway. They are also 3 points out of last, so lose a couple and you’re once again in the basement.

In other news, Mark Giordano has been fined $10,000, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for slew-footing Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel in Dallas on Sunday. As a first-time offender, the maximum Giordano could be fined was the lesser of $10,000 or one-half of his daily salary.

So wait… his daily salary is more than $20,000? Cripes. You’d think he’d be playing better hockey for that kind of dough.

    Some teams that are better than Calgary this year: NY Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, Colorado Avs, Minnie Wild, Florida Panthers, Winnipeg, Tampa and (this pains me) the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Teams that are worse than Calgary: Columbus, Washington and (arguably) Buffalo.

    Blow this team up, like three years ago already. Rebuild, start the fire sale for draft picks and bring Irving back up along about four others from Abbotsford and inject some LIFE into this lame, lame, lame team.
