The script was written as a Titanic like disaster flic; as the league’s best powerplay was to skate against the circuit’s worst penalty kill. Oh the horror, the carnage.
I guess that’s why they play the games huh?
The Flames used a third period powerplay goal from Micheal Ferland to add to a slim 1-0 lead, in putting away the Blue Jackets on Columbus ice on Wednesday night. In the end the Flames went one for three with the man advantage, while killing all four Jacket’s penalties, silencing a team that had been 40% on the powerplay on home ice.
The win somewhat wipes that nasty game from Buffalo from the memory banks, putting the club up a win on the six game road trip with three to play. Faith restored? Not just yet.
