Flames Concede To Play Rest of Season On The Road
Jay Davidson – @BLTJay
The Calgary Flames made history last night by deciding that they will concede to play the rest of the season on the road. The Flames will donate all home games, as well as the revenue generated, to their opposition until their season finale on April 7th.
The Calgary Flames currently have an NHL best 17-7-5 road record, while rocking an embarrassing 13-14-3 record at home.
As coach Glen Gulutzan stated after their loss to the Florida Panthers, “we think this is the best move for the team going forward, as we get really nervous in front of our home crowd, and it makes our tummies kind of hurt.” Sean Monahan also stated he gets the ‘nervous poops’ whenever he sees all the fans wearing his jersey at the game.
This is an unprecedented move and we haven’t seen anything like it since the Cleveland Browns decided to forfeit their whole season and not even play their games for the entire 2017 season.
Gary Bettman stated after the game that “this is good news for the ongoing arena talks in Calgary, since it appears they don’t even need one. We will evaluate our options this summer, and look at the Flames becoming an all-road team for the 2018-19 NHL season, and moving forward.”
