NHL Preview

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

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.

Injuries

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.
