Bob Hartley has hit the century mark.
No, the Calgary Flames head coach isn’t 100 years old. Nor is he a cricket star (to the best of our knowledge.)
However, once Reto Berra made the winning save to claim the team’s 5-4 shootout win over the Nashville Predators, Hartley reached 100 games as Flames head coach.
The win-loss record (37-52-11) won’t call it a success story, and Hartley knows it.
However, Hartley deserves credit for adjusting his gameplan on the fly and what he’s helped worked to implement in terms of a new culture.
After all, when he was hired in the summer of 2012 (before that lockout resulted in a truncated 48-game 2012-13), the Flames were in their fairy-tale dream they could still go for a Stanley Cup.
