NHL PREVIEW


Quote:
Brian Boucher, filling in for an injured Evgeni Nabokov, lost his second straight and allowed a season-high four goals on 29 shots. Boucher has allowed seven goals in his last two starts after going 3-0-0 with two shutouts in his first three games.

Boucher will start again on Thursday as Nabokov did not practice Wednesday and remains day-to-day with a leg injury.
Quote:

After going five games without a goal, Iginla has scored four times in the last four games and leads the team with 21 points. He has recorded a point in 13 of his last 17 games in San Jose and has scored a goal in five of his past seven contests at HP Pavilion.
Quote:

The Sharks won last season's quarterfinals matchup in seven games on the strength of three straight home victories. San Jose is 2-0-2 in its last four regular-season home games against Calgary.



ANALYSIS

Flames offense need to jump on Boucher. We know what kind of a goalie he is- not a very good one! Defense needs to be tight, don't let those forwards have their way with the puck in our zone. Kipper needs to be outstanding tonight. Here's hoping to see Dustin Boyd continue seeing time with Jarome Iginla. Cammy should be back tonight so it'll be interesting to see what the lines look like. Apparently, Lombardi is really close to being ready. I doubt it's tonight, but we'll likely see him in action next week. Hopefully, his return mean Conroy gets scratched. Maybe that'll light a fire under him.

I'm hoping for a solid Flames showing, as this will be the biggest test of the season so far. Kiprusoff will have to stand on his head tonight. Glad to hear Cammalleri draws back into the lineup tonight.


Go Flames!

Coming back from the flu is not an easy task, physically you feel like you just had a truck run over you. If he does come back tonight I expect him to play reduced minutes and not to be much of a impact.

I really hope Lombardi is back soon too as Conroy is just finding new ways of hurting the Flames.

...blaming Conroy for last game is just sheer stupidity... looks at some of the numbers for this team... Conroy has the least giveaways on the entire team... he does not have all that many penalty minutes and he has decent point totals... more than anything he has been unlucky that when he does make a mistake Kiprusoff has not bailed him out... where as Bertuzzi, Langkow and Cammalleri will give the puck away significantly more but have been lucky enough to not have the opposition blatantly capitalize on the mistakes... if you want to find the problems with this team don't look at Conroy... look at the combined 44 giveaways of Bertuzzi, Cammalleri & Langkow

Yeah...don't bash Conroy while his bigest fanboy is around...c'mon Lunatik, he has been nothing short of awful this year and has been given every opportunity to turn it around.

Least givaways because he never wins a puck battle to get the puck in the first place.

He is constantly missing and giving up on his check...it's been hard to watch

It is a well known fact that the more you handle the puck, the more you will give it away...think about it.

Conroy started off the season on a bad note, but so did the rest of the team. I think he's playing a lot better than most people here give him credit for. He has played every game, has contributed offensively, and not been a terrible liability in his own end, hence why he is currently -2. While I think it's pretty clear that he's not a full-time top line center anymore, he is a reasonable choice for a stop-gap solution. When Lombardi/Cammalleri come back, there is no way he should see the press box - he's prefectly fitted for a 3rd line center with Glencross/Moss/Nystrom on his wing.

I never blamed him for anything in particular actully. All I said was he is finding new ways of hurting the team ( a bad remark made to his "goal" the other night I do admit) and he should bumped down the depth chart. The guy just seems to have rotten luck this year and when he makes a mistake it's usually pretty bad and and ends up costing us. Is that not true? I like Conroy but has it not been frustrating to see him play for a good part of this year? Perhaps less minutes would be a good thing for him would it not?

I have a clue and it tell me that Col. Mustard did it in the Library with the candlestick. I also have a T.V and it has shown me that Conroy has been one of the most frustrated players on our team this year so far. Do I blame him for the teams troubles, hell no. I think the 44 giveaways you mention has alot to do with it and not being able to play a full 60 minutes.

I agree that would be ideal.

The guy has had rotten luck this year and I do hope he can shake that.

How is 9 lazy penalties in 17 games "rotten luck"?

Conroy has been terrible for about 80% of the season. He's Anders Eriksson at center which is deeply tragic to watch.

Mahr on the fan just now .........

Lombardi is very very close to being ready and there is even the (small) possibility that he will go tonight.

This is by far the very very best news I've gotten all day

I thought this was a GDT, not a Conroy roast! You guys want to discuss the finer and not so finer points about, Connie fine....but start a new thread.

Okay after that last post might as well say something about the game tonight.

Really with our Flames it all come down to when all signs point to a loss really don't be surprised if they pull out a win. In all honestly I would be happy with a point tonight...sad huh.

Winning a draw and have it go in your own net is rotten luck IMO.

Just pointing out that it's game 18 not 17

I have a feeling this will be a tough game even with Boucher in their net. He started pretty strong and I wouldn't be surprised to see him bounce back. Hopefully not at our expense!

GO FLAMES GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Flames.

By the way 9-7-1 is 19 points, not 17!

Agreed. The rest of his play has, for the most part, been brutal compared to what he is capable of.

That is very good to hear.


Going to be a tough test tonight. Flames get a break with Nabokov out and hopefully they can capitalize on that. Having Cammalleri back in the lineup will help as well.

Go Flames Go

@Calgary Highlander:
Nice OP, although the numbers could be in less eye cancer causing colors.

As for the game, I expect a game pretty similar to the Flames - Red Wings clashs over the last couple of years. It is for a reason, that Babcock stated, that they were out-"winged" by the Sharks in their first match-up, so I hope for a red-hot Kipper and a sound defensive game by our Flames. Move your feet guys!

The plan, it works!

Fixed, I'd hate for there to be even less Flame fans on HF due to death by cancer.

I suppose your comment was directed at me. I only suggested it as a way to send a message, not something that needed to be done for a long time, just a game or two.
