All season I was asked, “can they keep this up?”, or “is this for real?”
And all season I said likely not, but if they can just keep going the young guys are going to learn, the franchise is going to take leaps forward, the foundation will be set. I added, if they can just take this thing into the final few weeks, maybe even making that last home game worth something the season will be a massive success in my mind.
The Flames made the game worth something alright. They made it worth a playoff spot as the unlikely Calgary bunch hacked and whacked their way to a 3-1 victory over the LA Kings on Thursday night, clinching a playoff spot, dethroning a cup champion, and making the West powerhouses instant Flames fans.
Well unless they meet the Flames in the playoffs that is.
May not be wise to under estimate these guys any longer.
