Do you ever get a feeling that the city of Calgary has been the victim of a very cruel joke from the hockey or sports gods?
You go through a half dozen years of misery and then like a starving man wandering the desert you are confronted by an all you can eat smorgasboard that leaves you head spinning in good fortune? The Flames miss the playoffs from 7 years then go to the cup final in 2004. Then they miss the playoffs for five years and then insanely emerge from a brief rebuild into a playoff spot.
So why stop the fun now? How about an 18 year old inserted into the lineup late and said 18 year old picking up the assist on the game winning goal with 30 seconds left? Don’t pinch yourself Calgary, the ride continues, as the Flames came from behind (this will sound familiar) to beat the Canucks 2-1 on Wednesday night.
A win that gives them a 1-0 lead in the best of 7 Western Conference quarter final series. The fun just keeps on rolling.
