Hmmm should be a barn burner (no pun intended). The hassle with the schedule (somewhat better this year) is the Flames play teams I could care a less about such as Phoenix more than teams I want to watch like the Habs... Oh well. I am, curious to see how Tanguay plays. He is on pace for about the same points tally as last year but I am glad to see him shooting the puck more. Good on him for that.
I just made a bet with a colleague. If I have to work tomorrow decorated in Flames gear there's going to be hell to pay. On the other hand, I've got enough stuff to make her look like the Habs threw up all over her.
"Par ailleurs, Keenan a rappelé un incident que s'était produit avec Alex Kovalev chez les Rangers de New York : «Il avait tendance à rester trop longtemps sur la patinoire. J'avais alors prévenu les joueurs de ne pas le laisser revenir au banc avant un arrêt de jeu. Il était resté sur la patinoire plus de quatre minutes. Par contre, je dois admettre que Kovy est un joueur exceptionnel que j'ai employé à toutes les positions, même à la défense. D'ailleurs, c'est un excellent joueur de pointe...Oups, j'ai peut-être trop parlé, je ne voudrais pas dévoiler des secrets»."
Keenan told the media a story about Kovalev when he was with the NYR. "He had the tendency to start for too long on the ice. One game, I told all my players not to let him go back to the bench before the next play stoppage. He remained more than four minutes on the ice. But, I must say that Kovy is an exceptional player whom I employed at every position, even on defence. Oh, and he's a great player at the point... oops, I may have said too much, I didn't want to tell my secrets."
Don't have the greatest of feeling about the game tonight. Can't wait to see how some players will handle themselves against a more physical opposition. Will be real test for D'Agostini as far as their defense is concerned. And for some other players as well........Pleks......
There was a spark between AK46 and Koivu, i bet there will be one between Tanguay and SK74.
Sergei will win this game for us. The kid has a rep to uphold and I bet sitting out for 3 games made him bonkers!! I think SK's nose for the corner and great passes will complement Tanguay's finesse and also great passes, who is the shooter on that line?
