Heinola got the winner for the Moose last night.
you failed to mention the night before where the Flames are listless and lethargic in the Saddledump (ewww what a shithole arena) but whatever to have to say to convince yourself dude
Flames are the definition of mediocre, especially when Sean Monahan is your best center and Gio is old as dirt and slowing
still better than the team you guys put together by having the worst team in NHL history over a ten year period.
Nice to see pissing matches between Cal and Edm in here. Was tired of seeing the world vs Tor.
And it was a helluva shot.
Worst 10 year stretch in NHL history? Try all of pro sports history! Here in Edmonton when we set out to do something we try to do it better then anyone else, unlike mediocre Calgary that has been happy being a middle of the pack team for years.
I only caught the 3rd of that game last night. But from what I saw he looked like the best player on the ice for both teams.
how is that even possible? i thought Toronto was the world?
Only to people outside of Toronto it would seem.
I thought Leafs deserved a win but Big Save Dave was stellar, and you can't win them all.
Might be tough sledding going forward. Injuries starting to take their toll, and will become more obvious against McDavid/Draisaitl if we are missing Muzzin, Hyman and both NHL goalies.
Seeing as every North division team's fans cheer for Ottawa against any opponent in the division, it kind of makes the Senators "Canada's Team" by default.
I need a video of this please, or at least more explanation!
playing 4d chess while rest of us are playing checkers
Oilers went into cruise control after we were up 5-1. Honestly, game would have been totally different if Calgary hadn't started the game by taking 2 stupid penalties trying to goon up the place. You pretty much beat yourselves there.
McDavid was having a night to be sure, but it was definitely a case where you took the wind out of your own sails early.
Set up by Perfetti.
That may be but the Flames probably deserved to win both games in CGY earlier this year so there was some justice last night.
2 goals by Heinola but...
Goal of the night was actually the first one where Jesse Ylonen (LAV) scored into his own net with a 1-timer.
Just watched. My god did he just sneak that through! Shades of Laine scoring on his own net.
Really? The leafs did nothing 5 on 5 and if it wasn’t for 7 power plays I think the shot clock would have been incredibly skewed towards the flames, not to mention score effects.
The Leafs did nothing 5v5 except control play, limit chances, and create a greater quantity of high danger chances....
Those numbers are better than what we put up against Vancouver or Ottawa...
We had a 70% GF% and should have had 1 or 2 even strength goals.
It is what it is, though. You sometimes lose some you should win, and vice versa. I think Calgary will need to play a lot better to get into the playoffs, though. Winnipeg, Montreal and Edmonton played us much harder, and that makes me sad ebcause I prefer the Flames to those teams.
You can’t be serious. That game was total domination by the Oilers. Flames had about 44 weak shots from the outside and a single goal that probably shouldn’t have even counted. Oilers had countless grade A scoring chances. If that was the Flames “coming back to life” then I hope they continue along that path as an Oilers fan.
And you know you don’t have much of an argument when you resort to taking shots at the city. Very classy.
Yeah no the flames are definitely the worse team. Even with their so called vezina caliber goaltending
Edit: Edm tiki torch rally is probably too political thread, comment deleted.
The Flames deserved to win the game yesterday purely on the fact that the Leafs came out with zero jump or urgency. Even on the PP, they were fumbling plays and passing into skates instead of being crisp and really taking charge of the game. As the post below your showed, the Leafs dominated the Flames 5 v 5 and even watching the game you can tell that even with piss poor effort and no urgency, the Leafs could've easily walked away with 2 points and possibly routed the Flames. Your goalie stood on his head and Leafs couldn't convert on their easy chances. Sometimes you get lucky (which the Leafs have quite a bit last 10 games) and things even out over a full season. This to me was a more even out game. No Leafs fan/ player/ management personnel is really upset about the game yesterday because it was more than winnable and 9 times out of 10 they would've walked away with a win.
Wednesday needs to be a much better effort and not just reliance on lazy skill. Also, we have our 4th stringer in net for us and though the fans are clearly aware of that, the team clearly had no clue yesterday. That or they really hate Hutch.
really I can only think of two times in the whole game Rittich made a big save. Their just wasn’t many scoring chances against last night, I don’t care what advanced stats say and never have. The Flames almost always win the corsi battle because we’ve been trailing a lot. Doesn’t mean we should win the game. And yeah you guys won the scoring chance battle in the second and third cause it was already 3-0. That’s not a recipe for success
