Ten Thoughts

-Nice to see Akim Aliu get his first and second career goals today, even if both were extremely lucky. I'm not sure he's an NHLer, even at replacement-level, but it's a good story.

-Mike Cammalleri fishing Aliu's first goal out of the net was a pretty good demonstration of why everyone loves him. He had 19 points in 28 games with the Flames this year, with 11 of those being goals.

-Good for Henrik Karlsson getting his first win of the season. A real tough year for the guy, and likely the last time he suits up for the Flames.

-Jonas Hiller had quite the game to forget today, with 3 of the goals against him going in the "absolutely brutal" category. At least no one will remember it.

-It's possible today might've been Teemu Selanne's last game ever. What a treat to see one of the all-time greats as much as we do. I hope he comes back, but every year that seems less and less likely.

-That sequence of penalties about half way through the second period was just sublime...4 calls against in the span of about 5 minutes, two of which were bunk and a disallowed goal was the result of it.

-Those clapper things were super annoying.

-Jay Bouwmeester just can't win. People complain when he doesn't score, people complain when he scores. He's never going to be viewed positively by the fans here.

-Certainly a disappointing season, but it's nice that we got to see a win to finish it off...unlike what has happened the past couple of years.

-Big thanks to everyone who's stopped by this season, whether it was just to read or to comment. We appreciate each and every one of you.
