Keys to a Flames Victory
The Flames need to rebound from a tumultuous loss to the Colorado Avalanche, Thursday night. They have given up 5 leads in the past two games. Fortunately, they won against the Oilers, Tuesday night. Without question, our defensive play needs to be fixed. They’ve shown that they can score goals. They also need to show that they protect leads and win games. They need to be able to play the full 60 minutes. It was so inconsistent. You don’t win games in the first period and a half. The Flames and Caps are identical with 10 GP, 6 W, 4 L, 12PTS. Caps are a very offensive team. With Ovechkin a little more quiet then usual lately, the Flames need to take advantage on it and the defense for this game is more crucial than ever.
