In days of yore, NHL teams numbered just six and traveled by train to their away games.
Calgary Flames paid tribute to those by-gone days on their current road trip when they took the train from Philadelphia to Washington D.C. A team building exercise complete with cigars and pin striped suits.
Time will tell if it’s a benefit to the Flames. But in a long season that stretches from fall to spring and sometimes beyond, it breaks the monotony. And I have to say, Flames, I like your style.
