Who is jazzed for the Phoenix game tonight. I have a really good feeling about Iginla, he has had a lot of heart in the last two games and I think his time for a big night is coming quickly.

2 Goals and an assist for him in a 4-1 Flames victory.

Flames dominate the game for 55 minutes and only manage 1 goal on Smith. Coyotes score 2 quick ones in the final 5.

Well, I'm sure its been said before, but as a non flames fan I am always surprised that they don't do better considering their roster.

We all think this I'm pretty sure. We're horribly inconsistent.

Should you be though? The team's two superstar players are 35 and 36 and really won't be thought of as elite players beyond this year and the best natural centerman on the team is MATT ****ING STAJAN!!!!

This isn't at all surprising to anyone (except Flames ownership and management apparently).

Iginla is stuck in playmaker mode and most of his shots aren't quality ones.

This. Although, he is a great passer. I think he's changing his game based on his inability to be that dominant power forward he was.

I miss the old Iggy who went through 5 players to drive the net and score.

Edit: Not the best quality, but this is what Iggy needs to do again.

I'm optimistic that people will keep bumping and responding to this cursive thread. It's a reminder that a Flames fan should never enjoy hockey

We upset the gods with our sinful ritualistic miles of red!

Should be interesting. Based on the Flames regular pattern, they should win this one. Then again, it's very likely the Flames were going to lose against the Kings anyway, since they play a style very similar to that of Phoenix and the Wild, but do it better. Plus, they're a lot of bigger and have this thing called strength and size down the middle. While the Flames have Horak and Stajan. Yeah, I'm not optimistic.
