Flames Playoff Post-Game: Flames’ playoff run extinguished by Oilers in Game 5

The Calgary Flames played quite the game against the Edmonton Oilers in Game 5. But the Flames couldn’t quite hold a lead, nor could they get a key goal or key save when they needed it in the third period.

In an overtime heartbreaker, the Flames lost 5-4 to the Oilers. Their playoff run and season has come to its end.

The rundown

The opening period was fairly low event to start, with the two teams playing a defensive style and combining for five shots in the first 10 minutes. The Flames only had one shot in that span.
