I voted Primeau... mainly due to his impressive play over the past few games. Really brings a nice presence on that fourth line. It actually has a forecheck now.

Mediocre 1st period, but they definitely made up for it in the following 40 minutes.

Iginla could get the MVP tonight on a 2 point game and being a force all over the ice, but I give the MVP nod to Phaneuf today, on that beauty of a shot resulting in the GWG, who also had a really good game.

Good to be back in the Division lead.

Positives:
John Garrett jinxing the Canucks.

The last two periods.

Power play in the third.

Negatives:
The most god awful first period this season.

Our PK in the first period.

The Oilers benefiting from our win.


This is one ugly win. If the Canucks had slightly more finish this would have been a blow out after the first period. I'm not sure why the Canucks took their foot off the gas after that period but 2 points is 2 points so I don't think I'll complain.

Expect to hear the cliché "Full 60 minute effort" by both teams after this game.

Character win.

Iggy is a ****ing God. He could have easily had another hat trick, that shot that was one inch wide had me in tears... that could have been fifty!!1

Regardless, he rallied the troops after they had a horrible first period, got things going, and pushed us back to the top of the most competitive division in hockey. Phaneuf shot was wicked as hell.

You cant give the first star of this game to anyone but Iggy, and whoever selected the three stars agrees with me. He once again lifted the spirit of the club when it was down, they were playing horrible in the first. 21-7 shots in the first? Brutal.

#1!!!!

Oh by the way, while Canucks fans can blame Garrett for the loss, I'm putting it on record that I blame Dowbiggen for yesterday's loss. His damn article yesterday stated that the Flames should look forward to facing the Avalanche in a playoff series because of Theodore!

I voted Kipper for MVP, his saves on Pyatt a minute into the third was huge. Great playing by Iggy and Phaneuf as well.

Loving the Lombo-Primeau line, no matter what you always take notice when they're on the ice, and in the first they were the only line who did anything at all.

Unbelievably huge win tonight, let's hope we can carry it over 3 days of rest and take it to Edmonton on Sat.

Lombo and Primeau had a big game, its nice to see that line start to be reliable, that is very important heading into the playoffs.

The checking/energy line is what we have been missing the past couple seasons, they are more important than most people realize come playoff time.

Thanks for no OT. I was getting alittle nervous when you guys tied it up with like 8 minutes to go, but luckily you took the lead right away.

Can you feel it??? The playoffs are on the way for the Flames and they are starting to round into shape. Still some boneheaded plays but they are cutting down on the defensive lapses.

This game and the Minnesota game have renewed my faith in the Flames being a possible contender. Tonight was the first time in a long time I have gone physically and emotionally crazy during a game.

And seeing Nilson back on LW playing a strong board/corner game brings back '04 memories.

Wow...apparently the Canucks don't get that sitting back on a one (at first two) goal lead gets you no where. No one learned from the 4th line going out there and wasting 60-80 seconds of time with a great shift in the Flames zone.

Cudos to the Flames for taking full advantage and staying in the game, you guys deserved to win this one.

IF the Canucks can take the last two games on their trip (unlikely) it should make for an awesome game on Sunday.

Assuming the Canucks will win the GIH they have on you guys and Minny, that means: Calgary leads, Minny one back, Vancouver two back!

What a finish this will be, with Colorado and Edmonton right on our tails!

Thanks, and yeah this should all make for quite the interesting finish, with enough headaches to go all around. lol. So far no 3 point games in this Divisional stretch though, so that's good news for everyone.

By the way, I don't know if I've ever asked a Canucks fan this on here yet, but what do you think of Byron Ritchie?

Thanks Burrows! Anybody else as happy as I was to see him sitting in the box for the tying and game winning goal. Loved it. What a boneheaded play by that loser.

Anyways besides the first period we pretty much dominated the canucks. Our best players stepped up and got us this win. Iggy, Phaneuf, Tanguay were great in the third and Kipper made some great stops when it was 2-1. What a shot by Phaneuf! He is just unreal right now and playing so well. Couldn't be happier that he'll be a flame for a long time. He must have been on the ice for a good 3-4 minutes. Just unreal.

Have to give props as well to the third line of Primeau-Lombardi-Yelle. So nice to have a steady reliable third line. Nilson as well looks great these last two weeks. I really like the direction this team is going right now. Hopefully we can keep it up.

Last night's game was the best example, why the Flames are the most ambivalent team in the NHL and costs their fans so many nerves.
The first period was among the worst twenty minutes by the Flames I've seen so far this season, just to burst out in the second period and wholly dominate the affair. The last fourty minutes have been among the most thrilling and most entertaining of the whole season and the Flames deserved to get the win due to their desperate effort in the second and third period.
It was one of those classical grinding games, the Flames were known for before the lock-out and thus said, I think that retrospective benching Huselius was a good decision by Keenan. While Vancouver wasn't overly physical with its seven hits overall, Huselius would not have fit the Flames style last night and would not have been much of a help in all those battles for the puck.
Speaking of Keenan, I have to mention his maybe game-deciding decision in the third period, when he called the time-out and thus set up the first clicking powerplay of the game, which led to those crucial penalties against Pyatt and Burrows we capitalized on. I was tempted to give him (Keenan) my MVP-vote, but in the end, I voted for Primeau, whose line brought so much energy and played the spunky game we all want to see for the whole 60 minutes.
Honorable mentions go to Iginla, Phaneuf and Kiprusoff. Although he let in those goose egg from Sedin, his saves in the first period and his great stops against Pyatt at the beginning of the third period actually gave us a chance to start a come-back.

If he doesn't draw against Edmonton who's the softest team in the Northwest division, it's pretty clear that Keenan has no intention of using Huselius for the rest of the season.

I'm sure Keenan had some foresight about this and with his intentions, Sutter should have traded him at the deadline for something or anything. Not using him effectively and not getting anything for him is the worst possible option.

Eriksson sucked tonight. I'm sure Hale will replace him in the lineup. I always rag on Primeau and I still think he's a waste of size but I have to give him his props lately. He's been playing well and has chemistry with Lombardi and Yelle. It's an energy line the team needs.

Iggy and Dion were phenominal. I'm sure Iggy will pot his 50th at home against Edmonton saturday. Kipper was good minus that one gaffe.

The putrid first period only led to a contrasting second period. I haven't seen the Flames collectively bust their ***** like they did in that 2nd period. It was impressive. Why can't they work like that more often?

I don't know if that actually helps us. If the Wild win, it means we're more likely to face them in the first round and the majority of Flames fans believe that's a favourable match up.
