In case you missed it last night, the Calgary Flames dropped a crucial two points by losing 5-3 to the Los Angeles Kings in L.A. And to be honest, the Flames didn’t really look great all evening. The team had a rough start and if weren’t for goalie David Rittich things would have been truly ugly.
The Flames actually managed to score a 1-0 lead thanks to a blown play by Kings goalie Cal Peterson, but the positive vibes didn’t last long for the Flames. From that point on there wasn’t much left to cheer for if you’re a Flames fan. Oh… except this heavyweight tilt between Milan Lucic and Kurtis MacDermid.
Check it out:
That’s a big boy scrap, something you rarely see in today’s NHL. I love the energy from both guys, but would have loved to see a conclusive decision in the scrap. It seems like MacDermid loses his balance more than anything and is still willing to go when the linesman step in to break things up.
