The Playoff Hope diminishing for Calgary Flames amid loss to VGK

The Calgary Flames bowed down in humbleness as a dream distanced farther. A 3-2 loss against the Golden Knights means the candle of hope for a 2nd Stanley Cup is fastly melting.

Calgary Flames have played 73 games so far and maintained 79 points (32-26-15). They have just nine games to play and 18 points up for grabs. The Wildcard spots are intensely very far from the Flames. Seattle Kraken leads the Wildcard spot with 86 points, trailed by the Jets (85 points), and Predators (80 points). The tension is heavily sweltering and it can be felt.

However, the remaining schedules of the Flames look better in comparison. The Flames are playing already eliminated San Jose twice, Blackhawks, and the Ducks once. The games against the Jets and the Predators will be like a Play-Off for the Wildcard spot. In addition to the above, They play LA Kings once and Canucks twice. Although the Kings are far superior and second in the league, Canucks are easy prey.

Again, however, the flaws in the Flames are showing. Yes, very evidently. Hockey is about two things: score goals, and prevent goals. The Flames are struggling: Inability to find the net and Poor Goaltending are causing heavy damage to the squad.

27 Games! That’s the number of games the Flames have lost because of one goal. The stats show how close the Flames have come and yet couldn’t achieve the game. Yet another interesting fact show that the Flames haven’t won a single comeback. The lesser-ranked teams have done the impossible but Calgary is a behemoth behind.

Calgary Flames won the Stanley Cup once in the 1988-89 Season. They have been Conference Champions thrice, the latest in 2003-04. In the last season, the Flames reached the playoffs but lost in the Second Round.
