Nilson back, Godard up with the Flames...could be some fireworks. The guy with the best record against the Flames, is Demitra. Gaborik has not played as well traditionally.
Langkow and Tanguay have put up excellent numbers against the Wild.

Last Game Highlights
Dallas 2 @ Calgary 4
Saturday, January 6, 2007
Dallas opened the scoring half way through the opening period on a power play goal by Sydor ... Byron Ritchie scored with just over three minutes left in the first to knot things up at 1-1 ... Ritchie added his second of the night just over a minute into the second period, Tanguay and Lombardi assisted on both of the Flames first two goals ... Lehtinen scored for Dallas to tie the game at 2-2 after two periods ... with just over two minutes remaining in the game, Dustin Boyd scored his first career NHL goal, which ended up as the game winner ... Tanguay added an empty netter, his third point of the night, to give the Flames a 4-2 victory ... Langkow and Regehr had an assist, and Ference had two helpers ... Kiprusoff made 31 saves on 33 shots ... Calgary was missing Iginla (knee), Kobasew (concussion), Richie Regehr (concussion), Nilson (leg), and McCarty (hip)
Beat down would be the best words to describe that fight last night. Way to go Godard. And Godard's skills look not bad for a 4th line scrapper. He skates smooth and can take a pass. I'd take him over McCarty maybe. Darren knows what it takes in the playoffs though. I don't think we Flames fans should forget how well he played against Anaheim.
Ritchie has got to be re-signed for the 3rd/4th lines.
Now will the Jekyll and Hyde act continue Thursday in Denver???
Without Jarome Iginla, it's a awesome win against the Wild. Matthew Lombardi play very good game, it's very interesting for this young intensity player. Welcome Back Kipprusoff ! That's the way to win !
Big game against the Av's and the oilers this week ... Go Flames Go !
the Moss slashing penalty has to be one of the funniest penalty calls all season. Literally didn't even swing at him yet alone touch him.
No kidding! Did the ref look away for a few seconds, and then be like "oh hey, that guy's stick is broken.. must have been someone near him, couldn't have been his own stupidity.. um.. hmm.. that guy.."
For those who weren't at the game...during the pre-game warm up, both Goddard and Boogard came nose to nose at centre ice...they started jawing at each other and even got a few shoves in before Amonte came in to split them up...And yes, Goddard did pound Boogard pretty good....Official word today is Boogard has a concussion....
"I couldn't care less about the team struggling"....A very drunk Joe Namath
