Ok. Another authority on the issue has f-ing spoken.

Fine. I retract my comments to the same brilliant future predictive team on CP that said Trump couldn't win.

Maybe,just maybe, people aren't as good as predicting the goddamn future as they think?

Yep referee screwed us again on that Ducks' 3rd goal but that is not the reason we lost. I blame Brian Elliot on this lost and also blame the whole team for changing their game once Ducks pulled Gibson. In the first 30 minutes, Flames were playing fast with intensity and playing good physical game. Gibson got pulled and you can tell they slowed the game down and just try to save the lead. I am so ticked off right now especially the way they lost.

I said they haven't been dominated...they haven't

they have lost 3 one goal games with terrible goaltending

Gotta come in on the goaltending on this one. Elliot allows 3 bad ones while Bernier goes 16/16 and wins.
Could have had Bernier for free.
Doubt they give Elliot a contract at the cost of a pick after this performance

It definitely would have been, but there would have been a bit of a momentum change the Flames way. That's all speculative, I'm honestly just left with such a bad taste in my mouth after that especially with the ducks completing the comeback the way they did.

I pay over 2 grand every year in tickets. I think I can find a more fulfilling use of money than watching my favourite team get jobbed by video reviews night in and night out. Seriously this is garbage.

I hated him for 80% of the season. Elliott sucked horribly the last 2 games. How do you choke tonight out? New goalies required

Moose has to be better.

1st goal, bad rebound from shot off the boards. Should not be letting those bounce out.

2nd goal, was kind of a crap bounce off Dougie's stick - but gotta stay big in your net and stay square to the release. Nope, off the web of the glove and in.

3rd goal should have been called back. Thanks for nothing Toronto.

4th goal - Bunch of bodies in the way but another glove whiff.

OT goal - Sucky bounce but kicked in his own net too.

I think I'm done with the NHL after tonight. It's been a fun 15 years, guys. This team will always have a special place in my heart, but it's like we're fighting police brutality. We just can't win.

Then, add Ellliott's .816 save percentage tonight and you lose 5-4.

The Flames shut it down at the ten minute mark of the second period and started playing their bottom players. The Ducks kept coming.

The Ducks score a ##### goal with less than a minute left in the second, that Elliott needs to have. Then the Flames come out and play our third pairing AND fourth line like idiots until the Ducks eventually tie the game.

If I'm coaching, as soon as that second goal goes in and Elliott looks shaky, thats the last time Bartkowski and Engelland touch the ice. It's the last time the fourth line touches the ice.

I don't give a crap about "energy". The fact is they get dominated every damn time they are on the ice. That's coaching. Not players. Gulutzan is getting dominated by Carlyle this series and it isn't even close.

Watch what happens next series against Edmonton or San Jose. I guarantee that the top players for both of the aforementioned are going to dominate ice time. As they FREAKING SHOULD. ITS THE PLAYOFFS GULLY!!!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!!!

What are you saving the legs for Gully? You need to make damn sure we win the game. Not leave it up to several fire drills in your own end as a direct result of your player deployment.

People are going to blame certain players this series, that's fine. But I honestly think they are to a large part victims of the circumstances they are put in.

Lets honestly look at our player deployment.

We are playing a 6th dman journeyman (Engelland) and an AHL PTO defenseman (Bartkowski) close to 15 minutes a night. We play our fourth line way too much as well. Combine that, and you give Anaheim way too many opportunities to gain momentum and get back into games.

I put this series on two factors.

1. Getting terrible goaltending.
2. Getting out coached.

Can't have both of those and expect to win. Here's to signing Ben Bishop in the offseason, and launching the third pairing and fourth line into the sun.

If Gulutzan can't figure out how to properly ride his big guns, then he needs to go too.


Great post. Nailed every single point. Gulutzan (who i have supported all year) is being badly out coached.

Giving the Ducks a free goal on a blatant high stick more than enough makes up for not giving them a PP.

Yeah, I've read your last 10 anti-Elliott posts, I get it.

Ottawa has been winning in spite of Anderson, not because of him. He's had his moments though, so you can make the argument otherwise.

I'm not defending Elliott, someone asked me to name 1 goalie who was worse, I named one and threw 2 others in the conversation. Point being: he's not on some terrible-goalie island.

Can't let in 2,4 and 5.

Sure maybe one or two of those go in but you have to make a save on at least one of them.
Even 1 was a god awful rebound on a muffin of a shot.

One last thing. How the hell did Ferland miss that easy pass to Johnny for a breakaway in OT?? I thought for sure the Ducks were going to score right after the icing.

You are right, even during the game Garrett was remarking that the ducks top 3 forwards play over 20 mins on average and that not a single flames forward plays over 20.
