It’s the eternal playoff question across most sports: is rest helpful or harmful?
The Calgary Flames, off since last Thursday, are hoping it’s helpful while realizing they’ve gotten a little a rusty in the past few days.
I would think that in the end, for a fast team like Calgary, playing a fast team like the Lightning, the rest is ultimately going to pay off. But Tampa Bay hasn’t really shown any vulnerability to fatigue yet. They went down in overtime in game six and still looked fresh for game seven. I would have been sleeping on the bench, hoping not to get called.
Oh. And the Flames have also been killing time by going on MTV Canada.
There’s no word on the rumor the Flames are also looking to trade for Martha Quinn next season.
