A tale of too little too late.
For 55 minutes the game story was a pretty simple one to write. The Flames failed to show up early and never really got themselves in it in a listless 4-0 loss the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
Instead the Flames mount a crazed comeback, scoring three goals in roughly two and a half minutes to make said 4-0 loss into a 4-3 nail biter. The positive side of me appreciates the never say die angle from the Flames, while the frustrated side of me points out the fact that they’ve surrendered the first goal in 6 straight games and they simple have to find a way to get things going off the hop.
Either way they drop an important game to a team chasing them in the ever tightening Western Conference playoff race.
