Sometimes after a loss a coach can just walk in and tell his squad to let it go, ignore it, change nothing, leave your game as it is, bottle it up and bring it out again tomorrow night.
Hockey Gods can affect hockey scores, and tonight I’d say they caused about a 6 goal swing as a 4-2 for the Flames in Vancouver really should have been a 6-2 Calgary win if scoring chances, and edge in play had any thing to do with the result on the scoreboard.
The Canucks have been outplayed in many of their wins on this now 6 game streak, but none more than tonight where they really didn’t even show up. It was December 23rd again without logic.
Luckily these things even out over a season; tonight the Flames made a big deposit in that bank, I look forward to the withdrawals to come.
