In case you missed it last night, the Calgary Flames officially eliminated the Winnipeg Jets from post-season contention. The Flames prevailed 3-1 over the Jets in the best of five series and, frankly, didn’t have too much trouble with the undermanned Jets. The Jets, of course, were missing two of their top players in Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine for Games 2, 3 and 4 of the series. Ouch.
With the victory, the Flames are now officially the first team to win a playoff series at the Edmonton Oilers’ new home arena Rogers Place. Double ouch.
How’s that make you feel, Oilers fans?
