Over the course of an 82 game schedule things balance out. A team will lose games they swear they should have one due to bad bounces, sketchy officiating or dominant goaltending. Conversely, you’ll win a few that you really have no business winning.
Last night in Tampa, the Flames had one of those nights.
Two bounces in 15 seconds in the first period gave the Flames a 2-0 lead, and that’s all they’d need with Kari Ramo’s goaltending, and good fortune as they wrapped up the Bolts 4-1 on Thursday night.
