Early in the day Alex Tanguay finally came clean: He's still a little bitter.
Bitter at the way the Colorado Avalanche blamed him for the team's playoff loss and bitter over their refusal to offer the restricted free agent one of the many contracts being thrown around last summer.
Hours later, as the clock ticked down on a 5-2 Flames win over his former club, Tanguay issued one more statement.
This one he made with his stick, sending a rare shot on goal that found the back of the net for his fifth of the season.
The typically reserved winger punctuated it with a look skyward that just so happened to be in the direction of Avs GM Francois Giguere, who looked down from his uncomfortable perch in the broadcast booth.
