Ville Niemenen had better be benched for game 2. His stupidity is the difference in this game.
Yeah. Niemenen penalties have led to 3 PP goals for Vancouver.

BRING BACK LOWRY!!!!

Is either team double-digits in PPs yet?

Calgary really needs to go back to the drawing board, that 2 man advantage was a total waste, and I'm sure inexperience had something to do with it. For god's sakes, they couldn't even get it in the zone to set it up. Hopefully they can refine these short comings for game 2, I'm sure they never expected the refs to be calling every god damn thing possible.

I don't understand. Since when are all hockey players expected to be classy?

Niemien and Ruutu aren't classy, and we love 'em for it.

No, inexperience had nothing to do with it. Calgary's powerplay has always been brutal.

How in the hell we let the Canucks powerplay score 1,let alone 4, I do not know.

And seriously... Cloutier needs to get a life. He wins the game, then starts slashing guys at the end of the game? I sincerely hope he gets run bigtime in game 2. He deserves it.

At least Calgary controlled the game 5 on 5. That is a good sign if the clowns in stripes ever call a game properly.

The Flames run Cloutier all night, so he slashes them, and then he deserves to get run more for it?

Meh, whatever. I sure as hell hope he can control his temper though.

I take exception to this comment for only one reason:

Flames PPs: 10
Canucks PPs: 6
Flames 2MAs: 2
Canucks 2MAs: 0

Please don't make it sound like the Canucks only won cause they were on the PP all night.

trust me. The last thing you want to worry about his Cloutier having no life. I am sure he has a lot of life with the 3M that he is getting.

please, Canucks is a much better team on paper.

Calgary controlled the 5 on 5 most of the game?

:lol

Now you are focusing on the "offensive power" of the Calgary instead of "superb defense + godly Goaltending"?

Absolutley brutal reffing both ways. Just terrible.

As expected the Canucks came out strong in the 1st game. Good for them.

You have to like how Calgary was so resilient. They fought back, that'll surely build confidence. They were the better team 5-on-5 tonight. That's how the need to play to win (assuming we get normal reffing next game). I thought they outworked Vancouver, but couldn't get the goal when they needed it the most.

Credit the Canucks for capitalizing on their chances though, they scored when they got their chances. They were extremely opportunistic. You can call that "playoff experience" if you'd like. I call that an extremely skilled club. They made Calgary pay, and that's why they won.

So in short, Credit Vancouver for the win. Credit Calgary for the resiliency

Just terrible reffing tonight, i can't get over it. It wasn't even bad one way.. both ways.

I definitely agree with everything you said there.

Calgary proved that they will not go away no matter what. You get the impression this team could be down 3-0 in the series and 7-0 in the third period and still going down to block shots.

The Flames are a gritty team who is going to play every minute hard.

Kiprusoff was run several times as well. But the game is over. Take your W, skate to the bench. Personally, I'm disapointed that Nilson didnt send him to the dentist after that. Very low class from Cloutier, but what I expect out of the Canucks.

And yes, Vancouver only won because of the powerplay. Can't take any credit from the Canucks, but fact is, Calgary controlled the game when the teams were at even strength. If the game is called in typical playoff fashion, the Flames have a much better shot at winning. The number of powerplays does not change that.

Me too, and I hope the Flames get called every time. 6 more PPs for us every game would be great.

I agree about the reffing...it was just foolish.

I'd also like to compliment the Canucks resilience in not loosing it completely after Calgary tied it up off of two quick goals. We had problems with collapsing after something like that against Minnesota last year and if we can learn to handle close games like that I think we'll do pretty well.

Uhh...you guys had more PP's then us. Is it our fault if our special teams are superior to yours? If Calgary's PP and PK looks like that all series......
