I think they should have had those goals. Being that they are considered Elite goalies and that they are virtually the main piece of the puzzle for both franchises.

I expect better from Lui, but everyone has an off game.

it's great for him that for once, the team bailed him out,.

It would of made a difference if the flames kept going. They wouldn't have to go to overtime if they converted on one of the powerplays .

3-1, 3-3, 4-3, 4-4, and 5-4 Canucks. The Calgary players we're to lazy too protect leads.

I can understand the Flames fans being pissed at the refs. Even though there were bad/missed calls both ways all night long and the overall level of officiating was horrible tonight, it's always the one that changes the course of the game that gets most noticed. I don't blame you guys for being angry about it, I would be too if it was the other way around...It happens in professional sports though. Anyway...

The missed/bad calls wouldn't have even mattered if the Flames hadn't blown 2 different leads on their own ice (including a 2 goal lead). Honestly, I just feel like the Canucks are a bit too fast for the Flames. There were lots of momentum swings in this game, but when the faster Canucks (Demitra, Kesler, Burrows, Hansen, Johnson, etc) start moving their feet and using their speed the Flames look a little slow to react. If I were a Flames fan I'd be concerned about the speed (or lack thereof) of your defense.

Just my 2 cents.

Oh...and it doesn't help that Iginla has been absolutely invisible offensively so far.

Credit to the 'Nucks for that; they have a helluva PK.

Mod-edit: deleted. I'll leave it be since you obviously are not listening to anyone anymore, get over the loss and see what your team did good. It wasn't just the non call that cost them the game.

It doesn't have anything to do with laziness. The Flames are not a lazy team. What they lacked was any sort of defensive coverage and Keenan and Co. really have to work on that with them.

My bad then, but they should of at least kept the lead. They should of gain a lot of momentum during that 4-3 lead.

I'll acknowledge the good when I see more of it. It's been mentioned 100 times but they had awful defensive coverage. I came home to see a 3-1 lead, only to have them blow it, go up a goal, blow it again, and then what obviously happened in OT.

That pretty much sums it up. The Nucks were virtually dead in the second period, but the Flames brought them back to life with their poor defensive coverage and finally handed the win over, as they were unable to protect their lead respectively to convert one of their many PP chances.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh the shots in the 2nd were 18-9 Vancouver.

The Canucks came out the better team in the 2nd and then got in penalty trouble, but after the 5 minute mark when they stayed out of the box they were much the better team.

I can't wait for the Colorado game. 4 goals on Budaj and then another 4 on Raycroft.

The Canucks looked dead in the second until Rypien scored out of nowhere. That kind of shifted momentum.

Strange game.

I thought Giordano looked great for you guys. Looks like my Flames friend isn't making stuff up when she talks about the guy.

He looked good but that second Daniel Sedin goal wouldn't have happened if he was doing his job. He's their most mobile dman and that's why he looks so noticeable. He was keeping up with the fast Canuck forwards.

I think this describes the Bertuzzi penalty situation perfectly and should be the end of this argument.

Quote:
A little commentary on the Bertuzzi boarding call at the end of the third:
1. It was a penalty.
2. It was a dive.
3. It was called because it was Todd Bertuzzi, but it should ALWAYS be called.

Yes, I did just say that Johnson dove, and the likely conclusion would be that I shouldn't think that it's a penalty, but the truth is: Hits from behind are dangerous and shouldn't be tolerated. Now, Johnson made sure that he got hit from behind and then jumped into the boards to make it look a lot worse than it was, but it was still a hit from behind and that's all that should matter. -Shaun Vetter

Maybe the difference is Johnson is 185 pounds and Bertuzzi is 240 pounds.

I agree Johnson embelished, but not entirely. Bertuzzi is an extremely strong player, and can produce a lot of force without much effort.

On another account Regehr is -2 tonight so he didn't really make much of a difference. Just saved 1 goal .

Fair enough, though you may end up changing your vote by the end of the season.

Two words for that: Willie Mitchell
He does an unbelievable job of playing defense on Iginla. And he has been for a while.

Cammy is a keeper. Bert played pretty well except for that elbow to D.Sedin. I thought that looked exactly like the moore sucker punch
