GDT: Predators @ Flames, 7:30 MST (Sportsnet West/Fan 960)

Nashville Predators: 34-26-8, 2nd in Central, 9th in Westen Conference


@


Calgary Flames: 35-23-9, 1st in Northwest , 3rd in Western Conference



The Flames have the series season lead at 2-1, with the Predators winning the most recent game between these clubs; 3-0 on January 15th.


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

The Flames are on a two game winning streak, and the Preds lost their last tilt against Vancouver last night.

Miikka Kiprusoff will start for the Flames, which should come as no suprise after he stopped all 39 shots against Columbus on Tuesday night. No word on the starting goalie for the preds, though my guess is Chris Mason will be in net, after Dan Ellis got blitzed for 3 goals on 11 shots against Vancouver.

EDIT: My guess was horribly incorrect. According to the Pred board, Ellis will start tonight for Nashville.

Other injuries to note: Martin Gelinas, Steve Sullivan, and Jed Ortmeyer are all out for the Preds.

Cory Sarich is expected to play in tonights game, not sure who he is replacing, hard to guess, one would think Warrener, but he's been alright, so it could be David Hale who sits for the flames.

All eyes will be on Jarome Iginla again as he seeks to break the all-time goal scoring record for the Flames franchise. He is currently tied for first with Theoren Fleury with 364. Iginla has scored 3 goals against Nashville this season.

A much needed win tonight, as Vancouver won last night and with Minnesota losing last night as well, we have an opportunity to distance ourselves a little bit.

GO FLAMES GO!!!

Deleted my GDT since yours is nicer.

I expect a lot of physical play today between the two teams. The Predators are tired but they're angry.

I still have no internet at home...

Go Flames Go!

The Flames had a day off to rest, while the Predators played last night, so there's no excuse for not showing up ready to play. Here's hoping for a solid effort by the good guys, followed by the win.


GO FLAMES GO!

Flames will lean on Kipper tonight

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=231437&hubname=nhl

Things got a little testy in Vancouver last night so Nashville will carry a lot of emotion into this game.
Also with Minnesotas loss last night we now sit 1st in the NW cause of our game in hand, so a win is needed tonight.
I can't beleive we are 3rd in the west (1st in the NW) but Nashville is only 3pts behind us and they're in 9th. It's crazy tight atm.
Good luck to Iggy on the record tonight, but more importantly...

GO FLAMES GO

I am rather surprised Mason is not starting! Especially since he got a shut out last time he played us. Heres hoping Hales not sat tonight, cause tonights the night. The weather network is calling for a severe Hale Storm.

Go Flames Go

Just hoping for the 2 points. Hale storm with an assist somewhere along the line tonight.Sadly he'll still be goaless after tonight.

Two good PK's to start the game, IMO . The Flames are playing good team defense, so far.

Yeah, not bad. I'm not impressed with the SOG, though.

It's a shame Lombardi has no hands to go with all that speed or we'd be up by 1 already.

Not a bad defensive game in the 1st, but still not a good start. SOG 14-4 for Nashville.

Good to see Kiprusoff on his game, though. We may need him to bail this team out again tonight, by the looks of it.

Not a bad first period, IMO, some will say there were not enough shots, but I still liked the fact they are playing smart defense.

Oh and the Hale Storm had a great chance, really though how could one not like David Hale, really it is impossible I tell yeah.

Please SR, how many of those shots were good scoring chances? Really, maybe 5? Blah, nothing to worry about, the Flames are going to WIN this game, SR, WIN!!

This is true. However, it would suck more if the Wild got the 2 points.

Indeed, personally I find it amusing that some Fans (of other teams) fear the Wild, but I guess that is just because as a Flames Fans we haven't seen that scary Wild team. We're used of handing them their lunch, over and over again.
