The Flames Hot Spots following their 4-2 win against Columbus
The elephant in the room has been asked to leave. The most glaring of all stats going into the game was the Blue Jackets dominance in Calgary. Previously at the Saddledome, they won 8 straight; 10 out of the last 11.
It was their second home.
With Monahan and Bennett still out and with Columbus still alive in the playoff hunt, a collapse could be in order.
Despite a slow start and a sloppy third, they held onto win.
Important? You bet as they are three points up on the Sharks. Important because winning these type of games builds character especially as this young team heads into the playoffs.
Necessary to break the mental barrier against the team that has owned them in their own building.
