Well I’m glad that Joey MacDonald was able to win that game for us. He’d played well in the previous few games and only had one win to show for his work.
I’m also happy for the guys I usually rip on — Matt Stajan and Jay Bouwmeester — who both played as well as I’ve ever seen. That was probably Matt’s best game ever as a Flame. Come to think of it, most of the team played pretty well. Except it would have been nice if Cammalleri and Giordano could have made their presence felt somehow.
And therein lies the problem. If the team plays well they barely squeak out a win. If they do not, they get hammered. The win got us one point closer to the last playoff spot, so if this team could win a few in a row we’d be right back in there. Is this team capable of that?
