Flames beat Oilers!!!

         cgy.gifedm.gif

On April 1, 2008, the Calgary Flames played the Edmonton Oilers for the last time before the Playoff season begins….AND THEY WON!!!!! (3-2) 😀 Finally!!! It felt like it has been forever since the Flames have won a game and it might be a rather short season for the Flames if they do make the Playoffs.

A few weeks ago they were doing so well, sitting in a third position.. and now they have dropped to seventh… not sure if they are going to be able to pull is out of their hat for this year….knock on wood. I don’t know about Mike Keenan, he has his moments that’s for sure…but I just get the feeling that he hasn’t been on top of his game this year. The Flames have been up and down so many times…and it feels as if when they are down he isn’t the one that picks them back up. Oh well, can only say so much, I will get off my soap box and just wait and see what happens.

The Flames next game is on Thursday April 3 against Minnesota Wild.

On a roll…but will it last??

On the last game that the Calgary Flames played, against the Minnesota Wild,they won. It is actually surprising to check the score and not see an huge defeat. But, wait, hold on now, this makes three in a row for the Flames. Calgary has won four straight – including three in a row over division leaders – and six of eight. The Flames have beaten Minnesota four straight times.

….But how long is this winning streak going to last?? What happened to the Flames to make them get their act together?? was is Darrel Sutter?? is he the only one that can get the Flames back on their game….or is it head coach, Mike Keenan….has he finally been able to get them to work as a team?? Who really knows?? 

 I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens….Next game is Tuesday February 26, 2008 against the Colorado Avalanche.

  On February 12, 2008 the Calgary Flames played the San Jose Sharks and won! Tied at the end of the third period…the Flames won it in overtime. This is the second win for them in a row, won the previous game against the Oilers…. are they going to be on a roll when it comes to being on the road??

When I first started to write this I was being hopeful. But after the last two games, maybe the Flames are going on a losing streak. And not just any losing streak, a brutal one…losing big time to the L.A. Kings (6-3) and Anaheim Ducks (4-2). This is just starting to get embarrassing….they aren’t playing as a team at all…and as hard as Miikka Kiprusoffis trying, he needs the defensive players to work together and do their job….cause if they don’t…this happens and he gets screwed.

 Hopefully Mike Keenan, the coach of the Flames, will have some choice words for them and get them back where they should be. But they cannot keep doing this, especially since the Playoffs are right around the corner. After the horrible game against the Edmonton Oilers, the game on Feb 4, 08, Darryl Sutter had a closed door talk with the Flames. Then the next game that they played, against the Phoenix Coyotes, and won. Then they won their next game, against the . So what is it that Sutter can say that puts the Flames back into working order that Keenan can’t?? Maybe they need to swap coaching notes.
