THE PENGROWTH SADDLEDOME




NHL PREVIEW


Quote:

Seeking their fourth straight victory, the Avalanche open a home-and-home set against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night at Pengrowth Saddledome.
Quote:
the Flames are coming off a 6-1 loss to league-leading San Jose on Thursday, and have dropped five of seven after a season-high six-game winning streak.

"We're very disappointed, but we have a huge opportunity with back-to-back Colorado and back-to-back Vancouver (Nov. 27-29)," Craig Conroy told the Flames' official Web site. "Those are huge games and opportunities for us."
Quote:

Miikka Kiprusoff, meanwhile, is 2-4-0 with a 4.91 GAA in his last six starts for Calgary. He's beaten the Avs twice this season to improve to 5-1-1 with a 1.88 GAA in his last seven starts.

ANALYSIS


They better win after that pathetic game last Thursday. 6 goals against is unacceptable. The Defense needs to do a much better job of tightening up; watch out for Statsny. I will go ballistic if they lose 6-1 or 6-0 again. Kipper needs to be sharp and make some game-breaking saves. Forwards need to actually do their job and oh- i dunno, SCORE!! Budaj isn't that great so our forwards need to make his life miserable.

From what I know, Joe Sakic is not playing so that's good news (kind of). His injury is day-to-day. I was reading the Herald today and apparently Lombardi's injury is still nagging him (wore a "no-hit" jersey in practice). No clue when he'll be back though last week they said he'd be in this week.

I don't want just the two points, I want to see the Flames have a strong, solid 60 minute effort.

That's exactly it. I want to see a convincing win (in regulation).


Go Flames!

Budaj has been pretty good lately. Kipper got the SO last time so a repeat performance would be great

Like most, I just want to see them rebound from that dissaster in San Jose and put in a solid 60 minutes and a W.

GO FLAMES GO!!!

Hoping for a dramatic change from the last game. The last game was so bad people came over to watch but we ended up playing board games and haivng the ipod on for sound instead of the game. Hope for a great game by the whole team.

I dont know what to expect. Hoping for the best, expecting the worst.

This is a win we desperately need as Colorado will most likely be head to head against us to get into the playoffs.

Boy oh boy is this GDT all full of good cheer. Seriously, if one believed that ones vibes could set out an outcome I would be crying.

I want a win...a defensive win....2-1, 3-1.

Hopefully we see the opposite from Thursday night. Time for this team to step up and get going. All big games to end this month off and if the flames need to put a good winning streak together.

Any word on Lombardi tonight?

Go Flames Go

I would even take a definsive loss (Avs win 1-0 or 2-1). The word of the day is:

DEFINSIVE

Sakic being out is definately a plus for this game, and we seem to be able to beat Budaj more often than not, so tonight is a winnable game. I have high hopes for a DEFENSIVE game this evening.

^ I choose to blame Gio, Conroy "bashing" is just too popular.

Blaming Conroy for the goal? Why? Phaneuf left the front of the net wide open. Conroy and Gio were in position.

Anyways pretty good period for the flames I thought. Puck has been there they just haven't got the bounces in tight. Budaj definetly looks shaky in the net. Need to just continue shooting and putting the puck on net. Defence has been better. Kipper looks good.

A good first period. Solid forecheck, smart passing and sound defensive play. The energy was a little less that what could have been desired until Svatos scored for the Avalanche, and then the Flames really kicked it into gear.

The Powerplay, tho unproductive, was what a power play should be. Great pressure, some fantastic chances, and if not for Budaj (lucky bugger) the score wouldn't flatter the Avs. As a matter of fact the Flames outshot Colorado by a margin of almost 2-1 that period. Good to see.

Also very heartening was the Forwards obvious commitment to defensive minded play. I counted at least 12 times where a forward picked up the puck in the defensive zone after the Dman made a solid play. Seems Keenan's practice with defense worked.

Blaming Conroy is the cool thing to do, it is what all the "hip cats" are doing, besides me I blamed Gio.

We can blame Phaneuf too though, the more the merrier.

It just seems that Budaj has to let one in soon! Hope same intensity in 2nd period. Loved the almost goal by Glencross at the end. (and of course defense pls, defense.....!)
