Game Takes: Wild 3 Flames 2 (OT)

When you play with matches you get burned.

An old saying, but pretty fitting when a hockey team spots opposition clubs multi goal leads most nights, even more fitting when said club has a moniker of the “Flames”.

These Flames were at it again on Wednesday night, falling behind early 2-0 to the Minnesota Wild before scratching and clawing their way back into it only to fall in over time 3-2. A point is a point however, especially when you’re playing a team chasing you.

But learn already! - Full Article –

Game Takes: Flames 4 Bruins 3 (OT)

I’m Irish, well Canadian, but Irish in family history so luck and bounces and odds really start to stack up in my head when I’m watching sporting events.

The Flames with their knack of coming back in third periods can really mess with a hockey fan taking in games when the Flames predictably get themselves down heading to the third. Logic says they are due to go a long time without pulling another miracle off, but recent experience has the noggin almost expecting it to happen.

Well the noggin one out again tonight with a the Flames scoring four unanswered goals to steal away a win and beat the Bruins 4-3 in overtime on Monday night. - Full Article –
