On paper, this game probably shouldn’t have been very close. And it wasn’t.

Only thing was, it was the underdog Calgary Flames that came out on the winning end of a lopsided rout over the visiting Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday. The Flames jumped out to a surprising 4-0 lead after the first and then hung on for the 7-2 victory to move 34 points back of the Ducks in the Pacific Division.

“We played like [crap]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed with how they played tonight,” said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano, as per Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.

Cogliano added: “Every single person … It’s ridiculous how we played tonight.”

    Cogliano: You know whats going to happen here in the morning ? The whole damn King’s army is going to be here. They’ll move through this town, occupy these hills on the other side and when our people get here Sutter will have the high ground. There will be the devil to pay! The high ground! Boudreau will come in slowly, cautiously. New to command. They’ll be on his back in Orange County, wire hot with messages ‘Attack! Attack!’. So he will set up a ring around these hills. And when Sutter’s army is nicely entrenched behind fat rocks on the high ground, Boudreau will finally attack, if he can coordinate the army. Straight up the hillside, out in the open, in that gorgeous field of fire. We will charge valiantly… and be butchered valiantly! And afterwards men in tall hats and gold watch fobs will thump their chest and say what a brave charge it was. I’ve led a soldier’s life, and I’ve never seen anything as brutally clear as this.

    Executive Summary: in addition to Anaheim, the entire WC ‘elite’ now knows ‘exactly’ what’s coming their way …

    It’s a long season and they were embarrassd in a road game. Losing at home to the Leafs could have been a bigger shocker. If they follow these two up with another stinker, then they ought to be concerned.

    So I guess by most peoples logic on here the Flames are just a better team than the Ducks. Right?

    Every team, even the ones with the best records in the league, have bad nights. Bad weeks. And there is always another NHL team on the ice with you to take advantage.
