Flames vs Avs
CBC 'HNIC' & 960amFan
Flames tackle the Avalanche who they have had some success against this year. The last two meetings have gone well for the Flames and we hope that continues.
After a 4-1 loss in Chicago on Friday night we once again can chalk this one up as a “must win”. Sounds crazy but if they lose this game the Flames will be three games under five hundred and it will be a long flight home.
Now if the Flames win this game they will knock off a division rival and can get back to a five hundred record with a win on Tuesday against the struggling Senators. That sounds a lot more encouraging than saying “let’s beat the Sens so we don’t fall to a 6-10-1 record if they lose to the Avs.
Now it is really easy to be negative and many fans are, rightfully so. But I feel a win in Colorado may spark a good stretch with a manageable schedule ahead.
Let’s get the good trends started today and beat the Avs at home. Backlund looks strong and should continue to grow and provide this team with a reliable offensive minded center who can kill some penalties if needed, and hopefully get Iginla going.
