The Calgary Flames were happy with their effort but not the result in a shootout loss to Chicago Saturday.
The Flames dropped a 3-2 decision to the Blackhawks but went toe-to-toe with one of the best teams in the NHL. "If we play (this) way we're going to win more games than we lose," predicted defenseman Dennis Wideman. "If we create that many chances, have that many shots ... we're going to be scoring more than three goals a game. I thought (Saturday) was a good bounce-back from the Colorado game. We were better in almost every area. We've been at home for a while now, and maybe we don't have the record we'd like ' we'd certainly prefer the numbers were flip-flopped ' but I think it'll be good for us to get out on the road now. And hopefully get some wins." Wideman has a goal and three assists in six games thus far with only one assist not coming on the power play. We suggest picking him up if you are looking for scoring on the blueline.
