Sundin and Sakic Light the Lamp

After starting the regular season in a 5 game losing slump, the Flames weren't looking too hot. Mats Sundin and Joe Sakic are looking to change that. Both Sundin and Sakic pounded in 5 goals in a 10-7 win in Edmonton Thursday night in a bizarre game where nothing was going right on defense. With a 7-3 lead going into the 3rd, a win seemed guaranteed, but the NHL gods tried to change that. After having Ulf Samuelsson crash his own net, Hextall lost control of the puck and the puck slid in to make it 8-4. Then, Samuelsson intercepted a pass in front of his own net and proceeded to fire it off Hextalls shoulders and into the top of the net. Later, a wildly bouncing puck bounced to Mark Messiers stick and was shot in just beside Hextall to make it 8-6. With things going the way they were, the Flames were panicked and played hard to squeeze out the 10-7 win. "It's a relief to get a win, but i'm dissapointed we didn't have a bigger win." said coach Logan Tessier, "We had them that game but we fell apart defensively, and don't even get me started on Samuelsson." The Flames still are at the bottom of the Central Division, but if Sundin and Sakic continue to play like they did tonight, that will change in a hurry.
