GDT: Flames @ Blackhawks 1:00 MDT (Sportsnet West/Fan 960)

Calgary Flames: 36-25-10, 3rd in Northwest , 7th in Western Conference



@

Chicago Blackhawks: 34-31-7, 3rd in Central, 12th in Western Conference



Sorry about getting this up so close to game time, but I usually sleep in past noon on Sundays anyway.


The Blackhawks have the series lead this season at 2-1, with the most recent game between these teams ending in a 3-1 victory for Chicago.


Pre-Game report:
http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app?service=p...008&gameType=2


It looks as thought the Flames may have caught a break as Nikolai Khabibulin has been out recently with back spasms and is questionable for tonights game. Seeing as how the Bulin wall has stoned the flames quite consistantly, this absence may be a key one. Expect Mikka Kipprusoff to start.

The Flames are on a 2 game losing streak with back to back losses against the SE division, while the Blackhawks broke a 4 game losing streak with a 6-3 win against Columbus on Friday.


Injuries: Nikolai Khabibulin, Brent Sopel, Ben Eager, Martin Havlat, and Yanic Perreault are out for Chicago.


Key to tonights game:
No Bulin! - Speaks for itself.
Babysit the kids - It will be a tough task, but you have to keep the young guns for Chicago off their game.

With some teams gaining ground on the flames the past few days, this is a key game to win, and break the mini slump the Flames are in. Here's to a solid game and hopefully 2 points.

GO FLAMES GO!!!

Huge must win game today. And with Flames killer Nikolai Khabibulin not in, one would hope they take advantage of that.

Just ****in' win!

Safe to say this is a must win. Another non playoff team we should beat. If the flames don't get there act together they will be on the outside looking in soon enough.

Flames need to win this one, so good luck.

Prediction: 65916-65915 for the Flames.

A few changes from yesterday's practice:

Quote:
The Flames Saturday were back on the ice for the first time since the light out went out in Georgia.

The most notable developments at the practice facility in suburban Bensenville were:

1) Status quo for the forward lines

2) Some flip-flopping on the back end

On the latter point, the tandem of Cory Sarich and Robyn Regehr remains intact but all other partnerships have been split up. Dion Phaneuf is now with Anders Eriksson, who had been watching games from the press box. Jim Vandermeer is now tag-teaming with fellow Blackhawks alumnus Adrian Aucoin.

That presumably leaves David Hale, who along with partner Aucoin had a tough night in Atlanta, out in the cold.

Don't know, if I like the changes. Vandermeer has done a pretty good job alongside Phaneuf and IMO he has been a key factor for Dion's surging offensive numbers of late.

I have a bad feeling about this. Probably because Chicago tends to win disproportionately against us versus the rest of the league. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Go Flames Go!

Well, it's good to start off with a power play goal. That's a very good omen.

Wow, we've really come to play. We've spent most of the time in the offensive zone.

Hopefully that proves to be the case for 60 minutes. But so far, so good.

Come back from the washroom to find the score tied. Let's see if the goal deflated the club or not.

The Blackhawks have definitely had the momentum since that goal.

Yeah, it looks like we're really pinned in our own end right now.

On another note, that's the loudest I've heard the Blackhawks' stadium for a a really long time.

This first period has been a reflection of the Flames' up-and-down season. We came out strongly, just to falter in the second part of the period.
