GAME NOTES
The Ducks are 9-1-0 in their last 10, 4-1-0 on their current 7-game homestand and 20-8-4 at home this season. Needless to say it won't be an easy one for the Flames, though they have won three straight on the road. Eric Nystrom has been called up from Quad Cities and will play tonight.

More notes later today when lineups etc are available.

Calgary Flames coach Mike Keenan had a simple message for the troops during Thursday's practice at Father David Bauer Arena.

Not good enough, boys.

Keenan was thoroughly unimpressed with the final full tuneup for tonight's game at Anaheim, and made that very clear in his comments on the ice, and afterwards to the gathered media.

"I want the practices to be perfect practices," he said. "We don't come here to waste our time and to be nonchalant about our preparation. It has to be spot on every day from here on in.

"If the mood was different (after the trade deadline), it wasn't good enough. This is no time to sit and get casual because you weren't moved or there were no changes. It's time to move it up and raise the bar, and drive the expectations up amongst themselves. I didn't see that today.

"I don't want to wait and see if we're going to be in the playoffs or not in the playoffs until the last week. There has to be a sense of urgency."

Quote:
Left-winger Alex Tanguay returned to practice on Thursday, the first time he'd been back on the ice since suffering a neck injury in Sunday's win in Minnesota.

He skated on the top line with Daymond Langkow and Jarome Iginla, but will likely be a game-time decision tonight.

"It's stiff right now," said Tanguay. "We'll see how it is (tonight). You'd obviously like it to be 100 per cent. It's not going to be for awhile, so we'll see how it is in the morning after skating (Thursday), and make a decision from there.

"If I hurt it worse, who knows how long it will be? But I'll do everything I can in the next few hours to be able to play."

One thing this team hasn't been able to do much this year is bounce back after a rough loss. I really hope we in today, just because I reeeeeeeally dislike the Ducks now after the last game.

Go Flames Go!

Really want to beat the Ducks tonight. Should be a good physical game. Need a win to keep up with everyone else.

GO FLAMES GO!

Got a good feeling for the game tonight, I expect it to be close. Too bad that Tanguay is out though. I'm sure we'll see a couple fights tonight, and hopefully that fires us up. With Columbus against Vancouver tonight we need a win like crazy to keep ahead of them.

Go flames go!

This is a game where the Flames need to initiate the physical play, not react to it.

We need to set the tempo with some physical play and not get bullied by the Ducks.

GO FLAMES GO

This game will be a test of things to come. Anaheim is a tough team now and is definelty one of the ones to beat on the road to the cup. If Calgary can somehow keep their spirits in the game for the full 60 min and leave with a win then the future looks better as the season comes to an end.

The commentators on FSN West are the most annoying commentators I've ever had to listen to. Two crybabies, who complain about every single play by the Flames and every single call by the refs.

Corey Perry is so tough.

If Mark Smith or one of the Flames doesn't get a hold of him before the end of the game, I will be very disappointed.

Edit: oh my, Giguere looked like he had some problems getting up at the end of the period. Maybe trim the equipment JS.

Flames had a lot better second period. I am looking forward, if they can keep this up in the third period, when Anaheim is able to match lines better due to the shorter distance from their own period to the bench.

I was quoting Haywood. You were talking about the horrible Duck Announcers.

According to Mike Rogers he says Kipper might have the flu, seems it's going around the team, Sarich, Primeau, Hale are sick as well.

Ouch...Hope, it isn't too serious and Kipper and/or Keenan are wise enough to make the right decision for tomorrow's game.

What a great play by Phaneuf! That one would have deserved to be a goal.

OOT: Columbus tied the game in Vancouver midway the third period.
