If only we can regress a little more, we can all lay around all day in diapers and get to suck on nipples.

Those days really weren't so bad you know...didn't even have to get up to go to the bathroom.

I love these ridiculous generalizations.

It should have been boarding, no doubt about it.

Iginla did get back at him though, and that's the way the NHL should be. Iginla takes exception, they have a little fight, nobody gets hurt, end of story.

Just wondering how many of the people calling for Ohlund's head saw Gauthier put an *identical* hit on Jovanovski in Game 2? Same play, again no call. If anything blame the refs for calling all manners of ticky-tacky obstruction calls then turning a blind eye when a guy gets drilled from behind.
The losers and trolls were hiding under their usual rocks and bridges. Take about sad classly fans, back to the loch with those nessies.

When the Canucks play like that for 90+ games, then you can make this comment. :mad:

Tough hard fought game out there tonight. Special teams again was the big difference. Flames just need to bear down and finish. After Cloutier left, the Flames could not get anything going. Having a different goalie come in in the middle of the game seemed to get them off their game. They could not sustain any pressure what so ever. Hedberg played the puck very well, and the Flames need to find a way to negate that because I doubt Cloutier will be back anytime soon. Looked like and ankle or knee that he injured. And kudos to Iginla for what he did at the end of the game. Contrary to what some are saying, that is the kind of thing a captain like Iggy can do. He was ticked off, and he did something about it. Sets a good tone for next game.

exactly.

Dont think flames had an immediate plan for Hedberg when he took over and they didnt seem to adjust to Hedberg's puck handling ability.

I'm sure they will adjust just fine in game 4.

Hmm...how do you figure? The Flames are almost solely a dump and chase team. A puckhandling goalie severely limits their options and hurts their primary game. I think they are going to continue to be vexed by Hedberg.

The Canucks will play a 1-4 game when they have the lead in the playoffs.

Minnesota will play the trap all game long, whether they have the lead or not, in any game and every game.

Big difference.

hmmm sounds like the Flames better just give up then. If it's going to be that easy, maybe you guys should have just started Hedberg to begin with?

I figured based on the fact this is a playoff series. Flames is a hardworking team. Sutter is arguably one of the better coachs and he HAS TO come up with something, although I do not what.

If what you say is true, and I damn hope it is, Canucks should win easy in 5 then.

However, I just dont think they will go out easy, but with Cloutiers injury, I officially changes my prediction of Canucks in 7 to Canucks in 6.

Please.

Everytime Hedberg plays the puck, he shoots it to the same spot.

All the flames have to do is dump it in, go to the corner and wait for Hedberg to give them their present.

Hedberg is no Marty Turco.

You are making the gross assumption that the Flames are unable/too stupid to adjust.

Not really. If you are going to whine about the trap, dont play the trap. The situation is irrelevent.

What are you talking about? The situation is very relevant, playing the trap for a period, is nothing compared to playing the trap for 3 full seasons.

No, he is looking at the fact that the Flames, while playing a team with a strong puck handling goaltender, the Stars and Turco, were 0-3.

Certainly there were other factors to those losses, but the puck handling undeniably played a degree of a role in the results.

Of course, Hedberg is no Turco, but he still plays the puck fairly well, so that is where the logic comes in.

That is hardly a "gross assumption", nor does it assume the Flames are unable to adjust. It is a theory backed up by some history. I call that a decent argument.

That was a bad hit by Ohlund and should have been called for a penalty. I do not think its suspension bad, but certainly a call.

Two thumbs up for Iginla to respond the way he was taught to, and not spear or hack at Ohlund. Dumb for Iginla though to take himself out of the last 15 seconds of a 1 goal game, though.
After the missed boarding penalty Iginla actually rams his stick up between Ohlunds legs to start the fight.

I don't know why there are complaints about the officiating in this game... they are calling lot's of interference stuff which is good for hockey. The Morrison penalty at the end of the game had been called all game, so good for the refs to continue calling. It was a dumb penalty to take. Iginla has been running guys with questionable hits during this series, and a missed boarding call won't make me feel sorry for him, especially after how he and Simon crushed Salo. As others have pointed out, Jovo was the recipient of a similar hit as well. These hits should be called, but sometimes they get missed. It's POSSIBLE, that the ref who was right there for the hit may have felt Iginla put himself in harms way to intentionally draw a penalty, and that's why it wasn't called. I'm not saying this is the case, just a possible reason for it.

Anyhow, there have been many fans applauding the Flames tough physical (if at times dirty), game... so they should chill out when they end up on the receiving end of things.
