4-3 Final.

Well, the Buds almost tied it up in the dying seconds, but they fell to the Flames 4-3. Once again the team didn’t roll over and die which was a good sign. While I wouldn’t call it a “slow start”, it certainly wasn’t their best game. Phaneuf was by far the best player on the ice and he took control of this game. I think these were the types of games the leaf brass spoke of in the off-season and the pre-season. Close but not cigar.

This game didn’t fall on Schenn’s shoulders, however he wasn’t as good as he has been. It will be interesting to see how he bounces back.
