Flames Game Day

The Flames host the Wild tonight, 7PM MDT, RSN West.

Calgary leads the season series 5-2, including wins in all 3 home games so far. The first of these wins was a 3-0 shutout, but the last two were comeback victories: the 4-2 win over the Christmas break, and the Period of the Year, where they turned a 2-0 2nd intermission deficit into a 3-2 regulation win. Which reminds me...

We all know, thanks mostly to the friendly northern commenters on this site, that the Flames can't score. They're 26th in the NHL in Goals For, last among playoff teams, Jarmoe is robbing us blind, etc. etc.. Well, guess what:
I like the Flames' chances tonight. Calgary plays a similar game to Minnesota, just better.

Bonus prediction: Brian Rolston will be a non-factor. Game prediction: 3-2 Calgary. Go Flames.


Here's an important Battle of Alberta stat to watch tonight: I'm pretty sure that a Flames win, coupled with an Oilers (regulation)loss to Chicago tonight would result in a) the Oilers being unable to overtake the Flames in the standings and, more significantly, b) the Flames clinching a playoff spot.

Go Flames!

Go Hawks!!

You are absolutely right, sir! Those events would mean that Calgary could do no worse than T8th with Edmonton, and we hold the tiebreakers.


Yeah, but uh, your team is BORING!

(Okay, I got nothing... FOR NOW >:|)

was that a smile I saw on Sutters face after Amonte scored???

Allow me to say...WTF? (pardon my manners)

sorry for the double post. It's official; he did smile after that goal.

I just posted a cap of it. I guess miracles do happen. :)
