With that being said, he looks like he's settled down a bit. Flames close this out 8 - 4, I think.
Again if he can't hold them then the best thing to do is push it into the corner, and I think most are spoiled with Kipper no way Irving has elite level rebound control like Kipper.

Absolutely, so underrated. You never think about his commentary during or after that game like you do other announces, he just compliments what you are seeing on your TV so nicely.

And how can this team survive a 5 on 3 and suck when its 5 on 5?
He didn't cover it from my view, just pushed it.

Best announcer in the business at the moment. Hughson is awful in comparison, especially if the Canucks are playing.

Congratulations to Giordano, he's got his 100th career assist.

Hoping Cammalleri gets his hat trick and 200th career goal tonight to help finish off this crazy night.

A Gordie Howe hatrick from Iggy would be the icing on the cake for me

He covered it. His palm didn't touch it, but he covered it with his hand. You either wrap your hand into a fist and nudge it with your knuckles, or you use the back of your hand. I don't like the call, but Wideman's penalty is a fair one.

That's true.

What has always amazed me about Kiprusoff is his puck tracking skills.
Irving goes down in the crowd because he hopes taht the puck will hit him when he can't see it.

Kiprusoff always looked like he was using the Force to sense where the puck was accurately.

Wonder if that's even a teachable skill.

I would say no, again that is what separates the elite goalies from the decent guys.

Kipper has always seemed to know how the play will unfold.. Even when it's an impossible play to stop, he comes pretty damn close, or sometimes, makes the seemingly impossible, possible. Watching another goalie on a regular basis really makes you realize how spoiled we've been.

That's absolutely inaccurate!

Even that is wrong his real philosophy was "Who needs Stajan as a forward when you have TKO"

Kosto can't even make it in the league anymore and Sutter was forcing him down our top 6's throat just last season

Hey! Tom is pretty cool bro. He was 4th line and doesn't afraid of anything.

Yupp.. yes friends say things, but it's a whole different story when ones a huge icon in his city and sport and the other is a former teammate calling him out in public.

I disagree and again be a man if you truly believe it and say it to his face, saying it on the radio is such a ***** thing to do.
