NHL Game Night: 4-3-14 Flames at Lightning

Classic letdown.

CGY-4
TB-1

Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 24 shots for the loss including one goal directly resulting from a major puckhandling error on Bishop's part. Just a poor, flat effort on the entire team's part, including Bishop's.

First Period
10:20 CGY Cammalleri (25), (unassisted)
10:35 CGY Westgarth (4), (Breen)

Second Period
15:56 TB Palat (20), (Carle, Callahan)

Third Period
18:04 CGY Glencross (11), (Cammalleri, Russell)(PP)
19:44 CGY Glencross (12), (unassisted)(EN)

Matt Carle was the game's third star. I'm thinking that was some kind of belated April Fool's joke.

Hopefully, lesson learned. The team was fat and happy after the big win against Montreal and clinching a playoff berth. A soft goal and two Calgary greasy goals later, they were done for. Games aren't played on paper, and the other team gets paid to play too. If you don't come prepared to play, you can fall behind and lose a game pretty easily against anyone in the NHL.
