As per usual, Marc Crawford's prediction (misleading?) of a week is way off. The last I heard, if the series goes to 5, 6 or 7 games, he has a chance of being back.

I hope it is a Whiteout tonight as Naslund suggested. There just isn't anything like the first round of the Playoffs.

Calgary has GOT to clear that crease. Can't fault Kipper for either of those.

Wow.

I knew before the game that Calgary was a hard forechecking team, but holy crap. I'm quite impressed, actually.

There should be some discussion now that it's INT.

Wow. Who thought that the Canucks could win a special teams battle? 2 PP goals in one game...in one period! That' just odd.

I must say though, the reffing has been pretty weak. I don't think I've really agreed with any call that's been made, either way.

meh.. the 2nd Nieminen penalty was a high stick.. Cooke did embelish it though.. I like the refs call on Cloutier.. it was ballsy but Cloutier had no reason to be falling over like that imo

Refs made the correct call on Sanderson. He made sure he fell into Kiprusoff.

1st intermission:

Great period. Why? 2 FOR 2 ON THE POWER PLAY

Telling you now, it'll be the power play that makes this series for the Canucks. If have a good PP, they'll win this thing.

Jovo had one bad pass, but the man was the MVP of that period. Was HUGE on both goals. The way he comes down on the power play is AMAZING stuff, but I think Crawford needs to be more careful now that we've got a 2 goal lead (in terms of pinching Jovo so much).

Cloutier I thought looked okay, wasn't tested a huge amount with huge chances though.

Morrison looks great. Naslund wasn't given much room, but he'll get out of it.

Iginla looks like, as usual, a force. Ohlund has to make sure to keep him in check.

Overall, we were okay on the physical department. Some big hits against us, but we never backed down physically that's for damn sure.

Nieminen and Simon must show more discipline for the Flames, Cloutier for the Canucks

Donovan looks good, and Gauthier & Warrener were towers of power out there. Very tough.

The Canucks better be careful with the pointman Jordan Leopold up there. Gotta get on him. The others you don't gotta worry about so much. If you give Leopold too much room, he'll burn you.

The Flames need to continue dumping that puck in, it seems to be working. Also, they MUST GET BETTER on the power play.

Nice job by Chris Clark on that PK there.

How in the hell can the referees ignore obstruction for 82 regular season games, but call Niemenen on a very, very week hook nowhere near the play 2 minutes into the playoffs?

Man I hate the incompetence of NHL referees most days. Cant argue with any of the other calls that were made, even if some both ways were weak.

I wonder if allowing a Canucks player to spear Simon in the face with no call was "good game management"?

Either way, the Canucks got the chances, and buried them. They definitely took advantage of a jittery Flames team.

As I said, the calls have been borderline both ways. Yes, that Nieminen call was a o_O, but at the same time, I'm still looking for where Ruutu did any "holding." So yeah, the refs have been pretty weak, but it's at least even.

After Sanderson ran Kiprusoff, he spent five minutes trying to make excuses for it.

Isn't that how it always is in the playoffs though?

The bad calls the teams BURN YOU.

The good calls get killed no problem - heh.

Refs haven't been great so far, let's hope they get better though.

That said, credit the refs for making the right calls on Ruutu holding the stick, and Cloutier interfering with Kobasew (real dumb Clouts).

If there is any Calgary Flame that fills me with jealousy outside of Jarome Iginla, it's gotta be that kid Jordan Leopold. BIG TIME KEEPER, Calgary fans. That guy is smooth as butter. What a brilliant young power play quarterback. Kinda reminds me of Mathieu Schneider.

I'm with ya on that one buddy.

I love how he said the only difference between the Calgary PK (rank 12) and Canuck PK (rank 3) is just a couple of goals... (he didn't take into consideration the amount of times each team was shorthanded...)
