On the contrary, the Flames put together a 2-0 lead on home ice versus the Iginla-less Colorado Avalanche in the first 40 minutes and I was there.
I had to leave in the 2nd intermission but the Flames head a 2-0 lead at that point. They had a power play goal within the first 3 minutes on their first shot and usually head controlled of the rest of the way. Bryan Elliott was in net. I missed a third period that see the Avalanche get in touch board and get to within 1 but Gaudreau sealed the won a late empty net goal. Final score 4-2.
Next up: March 29 hosting the LA Kings where a Flames win clinches a berth in the 2017 playoffs.
