Is it just me, or should hockey just take hitting off.

That way, even guys conditioned like a normal 14 year old teen can make the NHL.
Well as long as they are not like the leafs whining that they had to go a couple of time zones. Keep it up #28!

A strong period by the Flames. They hit everything that moved, and then took the puck away and shot it at Halek. The offensive zone pressure was heavy and sustained for a great portion of the period. The best part of that was the fact that at least ninety percent of the shots on net were quality, dangerous chances. Unfortunately Halek seemed to have eaten his wheaties before the game, as he was stunning all period long. I noted the Flames did an excellent job of keeping up with the speedy Canadiens, and without too much difficulty.

The Powerplay was simply fantastic. They got set up well, and crashed the net. Even better there was laways a man infront of the goalie to provide the screen. It's really too bad they didn't score, as this was the best the PP unit has looked all season. The pk was all Miikka. He absolutely robbed Tanguay on a brilliant hesitation shot that goes in the net any other time. There was also a lot sticks in the passing and shooting lanes, and everyone was really pressuring the Hab's PP. I couldn't even see the call on Sarich, and I understand the call on Regher, even if I do feel that the Habs player turned away at the last second on what was a clean hit.

The first line has been so very dangerous so far. Bertuzzi, Iggy, and Cammy were all over the Habs and they really took the play to the offensive zone with serious authority. You can't blame Giordano for that goal as Lang got a lucky bounce. Miikka too was absolutely stunning that frame, and the 1-0 Montreal lead was definitely not his fault, in any shape or form.

I don't want to nitpick or anything but it's HALAK. Not Halek.

The Flames had a great start, amazing speed, I was surprised.

Phaneuf hasn't wowed me thus far, some people say he's a top 5 D in the NHL, others say his defensive game is lacking. So far I like what I'm saying, but he got outmuscled and outskated by Robert Lang on the first goal, enough said.

Regehr's hit was borderline, I don't think D'Agostini turned away at the last second, he dumped the puck and was just skating near the boards when Regehr pasted him, but for the record I do think the NHL is too soft and hits like that happen a lot and they shouldnt be penalized every time.

I don't see the Flames enough but I was impressed by Bertuzzi's speed, Aucoin's defense, Kipper's goaltending and Iginla's overall game.

EDIT: I like Rene Bourque too.

BTW Higgins is out for the rest of the game.

Here's to good 2nd and 3rd periods.

Oh my, the Habs board is pretty touchy. You tell 'em Regehr is a fairly clean player and you're a troll and an inbred apparently.

I saw that.

Also, there are so many of them that think there should have been atleast 6 powerplays.

I don't want to generalize, but they are so whiny.

Because the Flames defender pushed the net out, taking away a good goal.

Should have been an automatic win for the Habs.

Now I see what the Leaf and Sens fans have to deal with every year.
