Words can't describe how painful that was to watch. From a 2-0 lead and a 21-4 shot advantage in the first 30 minutes, to a 3-2 SO loss to the 27th place Minnesota Wild is completely embarrassing. The whole Flames organization better take a deep look in the mirror and make some tough decisions.
Ring... Ring... Pick up Jay Feaster, the Fat Lady is calling, your team just shot themselves in the foot... again.
Some of the Flames best play has come against the Sharks this season and they will look to continue that as they host the Sharks in the fourth and final meeting of the season. The Sharks hold a 2-1 series lead but every game has been decided by one goal with two games needing extra time. The Flames have had a great month of March so far with a 4-1-1 record and even with all the injuries up front, have found their groove offensively, averaging 4.5 goals per game this month. The Sharks on the other hand recorded their first victory in 6 games last night, defeating the Oilers in Edmonton, 3-2. The Flames have done a good job this month taking advantage of struggling teams as they hope to catch the Sharks on the wrong foot tonight.
It was a good road trip for the Flames as they managed 5 of 6 possible points, including another dominating, 6-2 victory over the Oilers on Saturday night. The Flames will look to get back on their winning ways at home as they host the San Jose Sharks tonight at the Dome. The Sharks sit third in the Western Conference but are currently on a 3-game losing skid being outscored 10-6 during the span. The Sharks also come into town playing on back-to-back, losing in a SO last night in Edmonton.
It’s been 8 games since the Flames last lost to the Edmonton Oilers as this rivalry has been heavily one sided in recent seasons. The Flames have won 15 of the last 16, including the last 3 and 6 out of 7 at Rexall Place. They will look to continue that streak tonight up north as they finish off their mini 3-game road trip.
