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.
