Once again there won’t be a obscenity laced tirade from the media room at the Saddledome, Bob Hartley seething through his teeth uttering words like “eradicate” and “you’d think 200 days together and you’d learn”.
From the moment the Flames “knew” they wouldn’t make the playoffs there have only been a handful of true face plants, most of those aided and abetted by some pretty shaky goaltending. The team night in night out with heads held high, showing ready and able to make each and every game a battle.
Tonight against a cup favourite was no different with the Flames scratching and whacking their way to a disappointing 4-3 overtime loss at the Saddledome, in a game they led with just 40 seconds to play.
Tough loss for the team, but salvation in the standings I suppose. Another great effort.
