Call me cynical, but I’m not impressed. Why? Because Jonas Gustavsson was brutal for the Wings. Calgary had 5 goals on 22 shots. Also because Calgary is going to have to win three in a row to make up for the three in a row they dropped in California.
Calgary had goal-scoring from the third line of Glencross, Stepniak and Stajan, as well as from Jay Bouwmeester who’s performing himself right into a trade (let’s hope). Roman Cervenka was scratched, presumably because he was tired and not because of his poor play as of late. Kiprusoff had a great bounce-back game after his couple bad performances during the last road trip.
Detroit had five shots and a goal before the Flames could even muster a shot, but when they did it when in. As did another a few shots later. Good thing for us Jimmy Howard fell ill earlier in the day!
