Way to go Flames. Didn't see the game, but I'm kind of concerned about the lopsided shots on goal. Did they really get outplayed, or was it a decent game?
Just glad we got those 2 huge points.

No contest for MVP this game, Kipper!!!!!

But even though we got outplayed most of the game I think some players were exelent out there today... Nolan, Conroy, Langkow, and Dion to name a few.

Nail biter for sure, I don't even want to think where we'd be without Kipper. The PK was pretty good, 5-6, with 2 short 3v5's, and we continue to get PP goals, which is a huge plus. Congrats to Nolan on his 800th point, and for a time we can bask in the top of the NW division.

I just listened to the game but man it sounds like Kipper has his groove back.It couldn't have come at a better time too. I hope Tanguays ok for Tuesdays game.

First in the NW !!!

we didnt play well. at least we've got 2 important points and kipper seems to be much better when he's facing many shots.

Positives:
Kiprusoff having an outstanding game.

1st and 2nd line played well. I'll in particular note Nilson who did very well filling in for Tanguay.


Negatives:
Penalty problems in the second period.

The 4th line.

Not a whole lot of sustatined offensive pressure,


All things considered, it's amazing we have the record against the Wild that we do. It seems the Flames are in Minnesota's heads because they never really play as well against Calgary as they do other teams. The fact that they're slumping could also have affected their performance today.

I thought that Vandermeer was pretty solid today, sure there were a couple of mistakes but nothing major, and he made up for it with a few heads-up plays, including eating the puck in the corner in the seconds of the game.

Nilson was solid again today, which was needed with Tanguay being hurt.

My MVP today is Nilson, I know that the popular choice is Kipper but I think Nilson deserves some love.

Didn't see the game again, how did the Flames play? Were they dominated and somehow won or what? Also, how was Vandermeer?

I really like the defence with Vandermeer playing in it. It seems like all pairings have an offensive and defensive player. I like Vandermeer with Phaneuf better than Erikson and Aucoin. Vandermeer takes less risks and backs Phaneuf up better.

As for shots against, Kipper seemed to see alot of the shots today, so take that for what its worth.

Kipper obviously. With honourable mention to the refs for waiving their arms at the Voros goal.

Vandermeer doing everything I expected him to do. Great pickup.

I don't see what Primeau brings to this team. Play Boyd instead he is better and is a future impact player.

Kipper = MVP for not letting it go to OT.

My gosh, that's a lot of shots on Kipper. Good to see that he's finally able to to his previous standards.

Vandermeer looked good for his second game, and he may be beter then Flyers fans realize.

I hope Tanguay bounces back soon, and Mikka was outstanding again.

I agree, he may be a grinder but has hands of stone...can't hit the barnyard door...anyways, it will be interesting to see who Sutter brings in on the deadline....might see Nilson and preems gone but who knows?

Was definitely Kippir's game. I don't think it was as one sided as ya all are makin' it, Minnesota's a hell of a team. I'm not making excuses for the Flames having a lackluster game on the scoresheet, outside the goals total, but with Minnesota's roster, and the Flames, well, Kiprusoff, not surprised to see a game like this.

Also, hello. I'm relatively new to these forums, dropped by the Flames forums a couple times already, never really said 'hi'. So, you know, hi.

Kipper has got his groove back. Great week for him and a perfect time to get hot. Just looks so confident right now. The difference in shots is a bit concerning the last couple games, but we are getting the wins so that is all that matters at this point in the season.

@Hyde:
I miss Huselius on the poll , so I had to vote for Kipper, who had another fantastic game and saved 100 out of 102 shots the past week.
Once again the Flames were outshot by a fair margin, but unlike the Detroit game, I liked, what I've seen from the Flames, cause they didn't give Minnie as much space as they gave to the Red Wings and didn't produce as many turnovers.

The Flames are playing well and their defensive game has really improved. They are giving up lots of shots but most of them are of low quality from the outside.

The defense looks much bette with Vandy. I think he's been an excellent pickup so far. He's logging quite a few minutes and keeping it simple. I agree that Primeau is a good guy but brings nothing to the table. He and Warrener need to go, if not now they need to be gone by next year to save against the cap. Boyd deserves to see minutes.

We're playing much better defensive hockey, even if we are giving up more shots. Most of them are from the outside and with the way Miikka is playing, it's ok.

Vandy is playing solid, unspectacular, competent minutes on the backend and is good with Dion. I like him for 20 minutes a game. And I agree that Primeau brings nothing but size. He and Warrener are good guys but they need to go before the start of next year. Boyd deserves the minutes.
