What a frustrating game to watch. How many opportunities does this team need?

No urgency on that PP. Pathetic.

C'mon Iginla, you gotta bury that!

This game has been mildly entertaining, especially those 3 backto-back-to-back chances.

Really felt Iginla was going to score there!

If the Canucks want to win, they should just take a penalty every two minutes. A virtual guarantee the Flames won't score . . .

No kidding. I'm surprised they're not purposely trying to go to the box.

That was a weak call to make it 5 on 3. Luckily Vancouver is incompetent on the PP right now.

Done. oh well the Flames played damn well and I hope they take this game to the Oilers (who just lost their chances at the post-season) and win the next 2 in a row.

The Flames just couldn't score on Luongo tonight. If that was any other goalie in the league, the Flames would have won in a blow-out.

It's so stupid. On Iginla's breakaway he MISSED THE FREAKING NET, and they still did the "Luuuuuuuu".

This pretty much sums up the game tonight, not to mention the season for these two goalies.

Both have had very up and down seasons, but it seems that Luongo chooses to have his best games at more opportune times than Kipper.

Third Period
This period was dominated by special teams. A true penalty fest as the Flames had three power play chances, and a five on three. Of course they didnít score on any of them, then the Canucks had three power plays with two short five on threes. The last four minutes the Flames continued to press in the offensive zone, but Luongo was simply just too big for the Flames on this night. One cannot have any anger towards the Flames for their effort as they never gave up, and even when the game was pretty much decided in the final frame they just kept coming and firing everything but the kitchen sink at Luongo.

The power play of the Flames had itís moments, but they have gone zero for six tonight and zero for THIRTY SIX in the last six games. They did have some swift puck movement, but the shots were a step too slow, and had trouble gaining the zone quite a bit. Never mind the fact that Jokinen just canít seem to get the puck to do anything for him. He had at least three brilliant chances, open nets and he just couldnít get it in. Heís got to be even more frustrated that I am. The penalty kill did very well to kill of both five on threes, but in the final penalty the Canucks finally managed to get a puck through Miikka.

Overall Impressions
The Flames put everything they had into this game and no one can fault them for this. Luongo was huge. Absolutely a giant in the goal. It sure didnít help that the power [play helped so much by not making much of anything happen. Iím sure Iíve harped all season about this, but there you have it. The power play again cost the Flames the game, and the chance to clinch the pennant tonight.

Three Stars By Me
1. Roberto Luongo
2. Matias Ohlund
3. Jarome Iginla
HM: Jamie Lundmark, who would have gotten the Green Hardhat, if the Flames had still be doing it.
