Slow Motion Night

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

So the Calgary Flames wore “vintage” uniforms for Sunday’s Heritage Classic that hearkened back to a past they never had?

Well, it was an appropriate gesture on one important level. The outdoor ice at McMahon Stadium was so bumpy and brittle, and the puck so skittish as it hopped and skipped in every direction, the game looked as if it came right off the NHL Classic Network.

It was played at three-quarter speed, with both teams so intent on not making an error mishandling the puck that not much threatened to crack the highlight reels during the three hours or so it took the Flames to record a workmanlike 4-0 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens.
