Dennis Wideman said that the Calgary Flames played well in Game 4.

The Flames dropped a 4-2 decision to the Anaheim Ducks and now trail the best-of-seven series 3-1. "I think we played well. I think we played one of our better games," Wideman said. "We just made a couple mistakes, and they’re an opportunistic team, and when you give them those chances, they seem to bury. I think if we play like that, we’re going to win some games." Wideman has five assists in 10 playoff games after an outstanding regular season in which he had 15 goals and 56 points in 80 contests.

Coach Bob Hartley has become a big fan of defenseman Dennis Wideman.

It certainly did not look that way early in the season as the coach made the veteran defenseman a healthy scratch in the second game of the season. "It was going in the ditch," Hartley recalled. "You’re the highest-paid player and you’re sitting in the stands. It’s pretty safe to say that things were not going well. I always push and I pushed him probably more than I’ve pushed many players, because I knew that there was something in him, and we just had to find a way to get it out. He’s the one that did it." It worked out great as Hartley got the reaction he wanted from Wideman, so much so, that Wideman got the 'A' on his uniform when Curtis Glencross was traded a week ago. Wideman is having a big season with 12 goals and 41 points in 64 games, including nine helpers in his past 10.
