A lot of talk about this failed season centers around a three game road trip to the city of Angels. On this trip the Flame’s GM Jay Feaster talked to three of his core players about the idea of moving after they came up empty in all three attempts.
But to me the season died earlier than that, on their last voyage into Denver when they blew multiple leads and let the young soon to struggle Avalanche come all the way back and beat them in over time.
Fast forward to tonight and you have the league’s two worst teams each playing back up goaltenders and battling both for a better draft pick and pride.
Tonight the pride belongs to the Flames and Joey McDonald as the visitors walk away with a 3-1 win.

Back to back nights with a border crossing are tough on the Flames at the best of time, and almost suicidal when you take the team’s best forward and defenseman out of the mix.
Yet that’s exactly what the Flames faced when they moved their torn down road show into Vancouver on Saturday night to take on the deadline boosted Vancouver Canucks.
The results were as expected even if the play was anything but in a 5-2 setback to the team with many jerseys.
