Both goals allowed by the Flames were pretty weak, but nonetheless, they got the win and left with the 2 points, and that's what matters.

If I'm not mistaken, Kiprusoff is now 4-0 when he starts after a Joseph start.

Great game today except for the weak goals.

Kipper = MVP

No one in particular stood out to me as head and shoulders above anyone else for MVP today, which is not a bad thing at all. Great work by the team as a whole. Bad first goal on Kipper, but as always he doesn't let it phase him and he played well.

My MVP vote went to Tanguay, 2 assists and coming back from getting pelted in the foot shows some guts.

Much needed win, now lets string a few together.

This was an awesome game to watch, the first period especially was full of hitting. I'd give the MVP to Kiprusoff though, we had to kill a lot of penalties late and he held us in.

Flames started off very strongly, but unfortunately they took a step back after the 4-1 lead. With the two losses against Atlanta and Washington in mind, I can't say, that I was very pleased by their performance in the third period, cause once again they jeopardized their comfortable lead and let the control over the game slid out of their hands. Fortunately, Kipper bailed us out with some stellar saves this time. Therefore he got my MVP-vote, cause he was rock-solid after allowing the soft goal with the Hawks' first shot of the game.

Happy for the 2 points, but the flames still don't seem to possess the killer instinct needed to bury the other team. Their third period wasn't very impressive, with too much of it taking place in the defensive end. Keenan talks a lot about "learning to win"....i think a big part of that is learning how to finish off the opposition when you have the chance to.

Kipper gets my MVP vote.

Good road win by the boys. Definetly needed the two points. Nice to see them finally start out a game like they did today. Came out hitting and really took it to the Hawks. Third period was a bit of a letdown, but the Hawks were desperate and got some fortunate weak calls for penalties.

I thought Nolan was great and that whole second line played much better. After having some bad games they really stepped up. Huselius continues to play well in March and we need him to keep it up. Sarich had one of his better games in a while. Thought Kipper was kind of shaky at times with his rebounds, but he made the saves when he had to. Great third period by him.

Hopefully we can get the win in Columbus and end this trip at .500.

Just curious as to why Vandy only played 15 minutes and some change today. I read somewhere they changed the defense pairings up for today. I thought he and Dion had been playing well together.

Great to see a win tonight. Interesting tidbit on nhl.com about Iginla having 8pts (3g-5a) in his last 4 games. Streaky scorer?

Anyway sounded like an ok game. I see the shots against was once again pretty high, can someone tell me if they are low percentage shots or are they quality chances? Thanks

Eriksson was back in the lineup, criticize him if you must but he plays best with Phaneuf and isn't worth anything paired with anyone else. Vandermeer can at least be trusted to play alongside other defensemen.

Personally, I've never understood why Eriksson gets so many minutes in each game. He's a regular healthy scratch, yet he manages to average about 30 seconds less per game than Regher and Aucoin, while playing more than Sarich.

It's reality and while it doesn't make sense, expect it to happen again (and again).

Yep, a very solid performance on his 300th career regular-season game.
