The Pengrowth Saddledome

NHL Preview


Having found success with a newly formed line, the Calgary Flames go for a sweep of their home-and-home series with the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday as the Northwest Division rivals meet at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

"The best feeling about this is the win," said Cammalleri, who has seven goals and 16 points in 17 lifetime games against the Canucks. "Maybe we didn't say it out loud, but we were all thinking we need to win these two games to get back to where we want to be and you can't win them both if you don't win the first one."

The Canucks had their lead atop the Northwest reduced to three points as they failed to get at least one point for the first time in 11 games (8-1-2). Vancouver, which has gone 5-0-1 in its last six away from home and starts a seven-game road swing with this contest, feels it can bounce back by keeping things simple.

Vancouver went 0-for-4 on the power play Thursday, and is 1-for-18 in three games against Calgary this season.

Great win on Thursday. Expect the Canucks to come out flying. I didn't like Sarich-Pardy pairing, Sarich needs to play with Regehr and shutdown the Sedin twins. Let's hope the success of the first and third lines continue and it'd be great if the other two joined in on the fun as well. We need Kiprusoff to continue playing; if it weren't for him in that first period, we would have lost that game. Cory Schneider is starting apparently. Good news for the Flames. Welcome to the NHL, kid.


No clue on if Boyd/Primeau (SR: "Primeau will be back...") will be playing tonight. I'll add something if I see it.
Luongo is still out with a bad case of diarrhea.

Cory Schneider's first NHL start.

Go Canucks Go!!

DBU 11-29-2008 03:55 PM

I'm going! :)

Let's destroy Schneider!

StreakingRed 11-29-2008 03:58 PM

Primeau will be back in the lineup tonight.

Huge game tonight, here's hoping the Flames come out and get the win (preferably in regulation).

Go Flames!

KiwiFlamesFan 11-29-2008 05:46 PM

This is another big game. Will be interesting to see what Schneider's got. Irving vs Schneider could be a possible future goalie match up...

Anyway, the game: I think we will probably have to weather a first 10 minute storm and not let them get the upper hand. Kipper will have to have another big game.

Here's hoping to another two points!

Go Flames Go!

Nice to see the Stamps getting some love at this game. :yo:

Although I doubt Lombardi is clapping, lol.

First off I would like again to congratulate the Stampeders on Being the Grey Cup Champions for 2008. Henry Burris, Yeah buddy, that's what we all wanna see!!

This period was the definition of Flames hockey. Excellent defense, solid forecheck, and solid hitting. There was excellent work down low, and on the boards, and the Flames were winning a good percentage of those battles. All in all I would call that a very defensive, with opportunistic offensive play.

The penalty kill. Our greatest source of offense it seemed. When the puck was in the Flames zone, the PK unit played to perfection. Smart active sticks, good blocking, and great pressure on the puck to force the puck out of the zone. And what a forecheck!! They say the best place to kill a penalty is in the opposing zone, and the Flames certainly proved that. The Powerplay, well they haven't gotten set up quickly, and seem to be busy chasing the puck too much. The passing also hasn't been crisp tape to tape passes either.

The first line is creating chance after chance. I absolutely adore the Iggy Cammy combo. Those two are playing on another level. Such great passes and position on those two. Good to finally see. I also am loving the play of our fourth line. They are bringing the fight to Vancouver in a solid way. It's so exciting to be able to extol all the lines on the Flames isn't it? And Miikka. He was solid and steady that whole period.

Snoil11 11-29-2008 10:15 PM

Only three shots on both sides this period so far.

StreakingRed 11-29-2008 10:30 PM

Flames need to crash the net and get in Schneider's face more to get him rattled.

Another very strong period by the valiant warriors in red. They collapsed on the puck and denied chances. They blocked shots and had almost no defensive missteps. The Flames also clogged the neutral zone very effectively, which in turn created many many more offensive chances. The forecheck was also rock solid, and they continued with the great work along the boards to win those ever important battles.

The penalty kill, wait, what penalty kill? The Flames played with supreme discipline that period, incurring no infractions. Which is always the goal. Well, at least on of the more serious goals while playing. The Powerplay seems,..listless. They couldn't get set up, and the passing was just a hair out of step. There is good news to report. On a perfect back pass to Dion, and the subsequent blistering one timer, Langkow got his stick on it and deflected it in. So even though they played less well than desired, they did get the desired result.

Robyn Regher. The Sedin Killer. Last game he threw one on his tush. This game he's ground them into the boards, stopped them in their tracks, and generally been the ultimate wall against them. And thank all the hockey gods for that!! He also made a fantastic block on the shot that came from the Conroy giveaway. Yeah, I know Conny gives at least one solid scoring chance to the opposition, so here it was. No harm no foul. And Miikka was superb once again. He didn't have a lot of work, but when he was tested he was more than up for the challenge.

StreakingRed 11-29-2008 11:06 PM

Wooooo...Moss!!!! What a shot.


Snoil11 11-29-2008 11:33 PM

Let's hope for more action in the PGT! :D
