Game Takes: Flames 4 Bruins 3 (OT)

February 16th, 2015 | Posted in Game Takes | By: D'Arcy McGrath

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 –


Game Takes: Flames 3 Canucks 2

February 14th, 2015 | Posted in Game Takes | By: D'Arcy McGrath

It’s going to almost get annoying with the number of times the words “four point game” or “must win”, or “biggest game of the year” are mentioned in the next few weeks.

However you just had to feel the Flames had to have this one if they wanted to hang on to a playoff spot, and reassert themselves in the West before they head out on a seven game trek later this week.

The loss in L.A. was humbling, as the Kings thoroughly outplayed them and had to have left some doubt in their hearts and minds, but tonight’s 3-2 victory over their rival Canucks once again proved the team is always good for a bounce back performance. - Full Article –


Game Takes: Kings 5 Flames 3

February 13th, 2015 | Posted in Game Takes | By: D'Arcy McGrath

I think we can all admit the Kings were due.

Handed three straight defeats in games against the Calgary Flames this season, some by comeback, some getting out played, all with a lot of implications in the ever tightening Western Conference playoff derby.

Tonight, the Flames found their luck had run out as the Kings steamrolled them to the tune of a 5-3 victory, moving to within three points of the Flames in the standings.

The silver lining for the Flames is a .500 record in two huge games on a two game California mini trip, following up a solid home stand. Big game against Vancouver on Saturday huh? - Full Article –
