Flames 4 – Sharks 1

07 Mar

The return of Kiprusoff and facing another tired opponent using their backup goaltender? this game began with promise.

And surprisingly, Calgary took advantage of it! A tied game heading into the third, the Flames uncharacteristically scored three times (including an empty-net goal) to walk away with a 4-1 win. Iginla scored, Blake Comeau scored (who?), and Calgary moved above .500 for the first time this year! Can someone say race for eighth? Nope, not even close.

At least we’re ahead of Edmonton.

    Two points out of eighth? If this team can go 3-1 over the next four that’s actually attainable!

    I really think it might be possible that this team can turn it around and make it to 8th. I think Bob Hartley’s system has started sinking in since Kiprusoff was out. Clearly, they had trouble in net without him.

    But with Kipper back in the line-up it will provide the goal-tending they desperately need and maybe even a psychological edge. And a team can always get hot at the right time and go big…(Los Angeles).

    But whatever, I’m a glass-half-full guy.
