    Rittich in the starter’s/home net, too. We will see if it means anything in a bit. #Flames

    Sigh...Seems as though our bottom six is doomed to repeat, but Go Flames!​

    Came to post this as well.

    Remember when our bottom 6 was terrible? Don't worry, we'll just run them again tonight.

    The Flames are sprinters. Gully is a parachute

    Yesterday Friedman thinks that neither Gully or Treliving will lose their job if we miss the playoffs...

    Increased responsibility and pressure that comes with inheriting the No. 1 job was never going to be easy for David Rittich, but the drop-off has been stunning:
    7 starts before Smith injury | 5-0-2, 1.96 GAA, .938 SV%
    6 starts since Smith injury | 1-4-1, 4.41 GAA, .864 SV%

    Friedman's speculation is almost worthless these days. Missing the playoffs after acquiring a true #1 goalie and shoring up the D is hard to justify. I think it's more likely both are sent packing rather than neither of them

    Flames need at least 11-5-1 to hit 96 points. It's not happening. Missing this one tonight and am not the least bit upset about it.

    Man seeing that bottom 6 is depressing and I am not as anti-Stewart as many were.

    Flames are done. It's over. To make the playoffs they have to run train on our divisional playoff rivals twice plus beat Edmonton twice.

    It ain't happening folks.

    Go Flames! We can still do this. To be honest we've got a fairly easy schedule for the next while.

    5-game winning streak, then .500 hockey. 96 points.

    Our division rivals are also playing each other down the stretch, I assume, and that means they can't win them all.

    I mean I don’t love our chances. But if there is one team that will go on a 9 game win streak to make the playoffs it’s the Flames.

    We're only 8 games above .500 after like 65 games. Does anyone really think this team can go 6 games above .500 with less than a quarter of the season left...

    who knows, we can sit here a whine about the last 2 games. If we win the next two, everyone will be having a party. This time of year will kill a fans spirit one day and bring it back the next. That said, I like our chances tonight.

    When we last had a 6-game winning streak, we had an even worse record.

    It's definitely not like the Flames have put themselves in a good position, but by no means have they made it impossible.
