The road trip is over, and that’s a relief cause it did not look pretty. Even with the CBA-mandated day off today, the Flames need to take time to regroup at home and ask some tough questions. Namely: what’s up with the start of their season?
Feel of the game
On the bright side, this game was markedly better than the one which took place 24 hours prior. It would have been hard to have a worse game, but baby steps. Martin Jones actually had to make a difference in this one, which hasn’t really been the case for any opposition goalies six games into this season.
