After a fairly uneven performance against the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday, the Calgary Flames returned home to the palatial Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday night looking for a win. The bad news is they were just as uneven as they were in Denver. The good news is they were just good enough to grind out a 3-0 win against the visiting Vancouver Canucks.
The Flames started their second game in a similar way they did their first – by taking a penalty. Granted, they took a minor 33 seconds in rather than 10 seconds in, so that’s an improvement.
