Can we get one thing straight? It’s the media that’s hyping this Tkachuk vs. Doughty feud. THey don’t want to talk about it. But media needs something to talk about and are blowing this rivalry out of proportion. Not that it doesn’t make for exciting hockey, but it’s working against the Flames.
Calgary didn’t even show up for the first. They were dead. It was by far the worst period they’ve played all season. Which isn’t saying much (hahah). So let’s say it’s the worst first period in recent memory. David Rittich with one soft goal, but he kept the flames in it early.
