Regehr - Leopold
Warrener - Ference
Montador - Commodore

When you think about it, that lineup has no business participating in the SCF, let alone taking it to seven games (with a questionable call that could have been six games...) Injuries played a significant role, to be sure.
I love the Flames but on paper this team sucked. Sutter's coaching and Kipper's play was the only reason we got so far. There are only about 4 players on that team that could score at the time and yet the Sutter mentality managed to win out in the almost every time.
