Five words: “We need to win.” In English, it’s even shorter. Four words: “We need to win.”
In the ranking of the northern zone, CH lost its lead in the fourth place in the zone. If it seemed possible to participate in the playoffs a few weeks ago, it is now uncertain.
In the last two matchups held by Scotiabank Sadredom, flames blew dangerously around the Habs’ necks, delaying by 4 points. However, they played another game.
Winger Andrew Mangiapane (Andrew Mangiapane) said: “We always think it is possible to improve the ranking.” We know that the game is very important for Montreal. It was a four-point game. We signed two big victories, but this work is not yet complete. We must work harder. We believe in this locker room. “
Darryl Sutter added: “This is an important game, very important.” Not long ago, we were eight points behind the Canadians. We are getting closer. “
Unlike Habs, Flames found himself in seller mode at the transaction deadline.Brad Treliving trades center Sam Bennett to the Florida Panthers and goalkeeper
David Rittich of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In theory, the message we send is what we hope to build for the future.
If fourth place in the Canadian Division is eliminated, the Flames still have a chance to focus on the present.
In eight games against the Canadians this year, the Flames have won six. Since the arrival of Sutter, they have won five of the six duels.
Sartre said: “This is a weird season because we only play against six teams.” You have a number of teams in some teams. For us, it seems like this against the Canadians, but it is difficult for Ottawa.In this department, there are three dominant teams [Toronto, Winnipeg et Edmonton]. Then there is another group, with four teams close to victory. There really isn’t much difference. Sometimes you can stand up with a goalkeeper on fire, or you can slip and fall with a seriously injured person. “
As far as CH is concerned, since Brendan Gallagher injured his right thumb, his record is 3-8-0, which is obviously his mistake.
