Ducks drop inconsistent Flames
By RANDY SPORTAK, QMI Agency
CALGARY - Oh yeah, the Calgary Flames are consistent.
Consistent at being inconsistent.
We’re not talking game to game here.
It’s period to period, and the end result was Monday night’s 5-4 loss the Anaheim Ducks.
Two games — two losses — and the Flames have posted one dubious trend: good period, bad period, good period, bad period, good period, bad period.
Unfortunately for them, the third period against the Ducks was from the smelly department.
After coming back from a three-goal deficit to make it a tie going into the final frame, the Flames saw it all go for naught seeming in the blink of an eye.
Daniel Winnik netted his second goal of the game — and fourth of the young season if you can believe it — to break open the deadlock early in the third period.
No problem, right?
