Flames 5 – Coyotes 4

25 Feb

The Flames blew and then regained a third-period lead in this game. This was also right in-line with the idea that when Calgary loses, they really lose; but when they win – they just barely eke it out.

This ‘must-win’ as they say, happened in the last minute and a half of the third period. Iggy scored his second of the game to tie it up, and Glenncross (finally) scored a half-minute later to give Calgary the win in regulation. This game had four lead changes in it, I can’t remember the last time that happened.

What people will remember was the strangeness of Matt Stajan’s interference penalty he took while in the penalty box. And on the subsequent powerplay Jay Bouwmeester snuck one past Joey MacDonald. Ouch. The funny thing is if Stajan would have jumped into the guy and knocked him over there would have been no call, you just can’t touch the puck until both skates are on the ice.

    Two game winning streak … oh my, that almost never happens anymore … ever.

    The scientific win:loss ratio to get in the playoffs is now 20:11. Can they do it?
