GDT: Flames @ Coyotes, 7:30 MST (PPV/Fan 960)

Calgary Flames: 29-22-8, 3rd in Northwest, 8th in Western Conference


@

Phoenix Coyotes: 31-25-4, 4th in Pacific, 9th in Westen Conference


The last meeting ended in a late game rally by the flames who won it 4-3 in a shootout with Jarome Iginla regestering the only goal in the process.

Pre-Game report:
http://flames.nhl.com/team/app?gameN...8&service=page

The flames have lost two in a row while Phoenix has won their last three contests.

Flames need this one in a bad way. A Phoenix win leapfrogs them up into the last playoff spot, pushing us out. With a strong effort we can win this one and pick up 2 much needed points.

GO FLAMES GO!!!

After the ****-show we've seen from these guys lately, anything less than a regulation win tonight will be a big disapointment. With Edmonton, Vancouver and Minnesota all playing tonight, this is a must-win game.

Any word on whether it will be Kiprusoff or Joseph in net tonight?

GO FLAMES GO!

I will light some candles, burn some incense, sacrifice a few cows, chant ancient verses and pray that the hockey gods give us a team that shows up 110% tonite!!

On the Flames site they have Kipper listed as starting goalie in the preview.

Just like I said last time we played the Yotes, I won't be surprised if they beat us and leap-frog us in the standings...

suck Flames suck.

Seems cheering them on seems to do the opposite so maybe encouraging them conserve their energy for the next practice/media scrum will help them with their game.

Braced for the Desert Dogs
Calgary G Miikka Kiprusoff, it appears, will get the nod tonight against Phoenix.
If you're keeping track, G Curtis Joseph has started once in a dozen dates. But then again, the Flames are in business tomorrow at Dallas, so that could be his assignment. Maybe.
But the Flames are squarely focused on tonight — Calgary and Phoenix (and Vancouver) all start the day with 66 points.

“This is as big a game as we’ve played in a long time," RW Jarome Iginla said after the brisk morning skate."Look at the standings — they’re tied with us. We’ve got to get our things going again. This would be a good way to do it. This is a team that’s feeling good and they’re going to want to jump into a playoff spot. We want to keep ours and move up and square up the road trip at 2-2.”
Added D Cory Sarich: “Oh, it's huge. We haven’t performed like we wanted on this trip, so we just want to get back in the win column — that’s the bottom line.”

The Flames, however, have succeeded only three times in their last eight dates. And, in their three road games, have been outplayed significantly.

The Coyotes, meanwhile, are on a three-game winning streak — 14-7-3 in their last 24 outings — including Monday's 4-0 blanking of the home-ice Los Angeles Kings.
Hard to believe that they'd started the season 11-14-0.

Biggest game of the season. If they can't get up for this game and give a full effort then I just don't know what the problem is. No excuses tonight. Win or else as far as I am concerned.

Any word on any lineup changes? Boyd or Moss getting back in?

This is a huge game for both our teams. Should be an entertaining one. Myself and the 4 other Fans in AZ will be at the game.

How is Nolan doing for you guys this season? I saw him light it up Vs. SJ a couple weeks ago and he was a fan Fav here in PHX. I was sad to see him go.

Go Yotes!

Isn't Moss hurt? I haven't heard anything yet regarding line up changes.

Nolan is great, he really seems to care about his teammates, which is needed on this team.

As per Rob Kerr's Blog:

Quote:
Game day in Arizona for the Flames as they battle a red hot Coyotes team that just swept a 2 games home and home with the Kings. Kiprusoff will be back in goal tonight, make no bones about it Calgary is not screwing around with its goaltenders; this is Miikka’s team they will win or lose with him. It looks like Rhett Warrener and Dustin Boyd could be back in the line up tonight.
Quote:
Talking to Peter Maher earlier today, it was made clear yesterday that the Old “Iron Mike” is back. Keenan ripped into his team yesterday instead of a practice; he has been a different guy this season according to players who played for him before. My only concern with that would be why now? And will it really work? Time will tell!

Nolan has been great for us, especially in the 2nd half of the season.

Very classy move by the Coyotes to take a moment of silence in honour of Mickey Renaud.

What a great play by Iginla, who has been on fire all night so far.
