But who cares as long as a team north of the border wins the cup.
Those those people that compain about the rah! rah! Canada posts on here, you actually have it easy. Take a look at the flip side and all of the ignorant bashers like rwilson99 that we have to continously deal with.
Expect a different type of game tonight. According to Pierre McGuire, the upper echelon in the NHL head office came down on the refs and are they're instructed to call all obstruction penalties after the lack thereof in Game 1. This most likely would hurt the Flames who played a 1-2-2 system, but knowing Sutter he'll have no problem in altering their style accordingly.
BTW, I find the Flames to play an exciting brand of hockey. Fast, constant hitting while still employing an effective defensive system.
edit. Oh and I'm not usually a Flames fan persay despite the avatar, just hanging on to the bandwagon.

I thought the reffing was very good in game 1. One or two questionable calls but they let the guys play and only called the blatant penalties (Fedetenko nailing Donovan, Stillman and Boyle's elbows to the head, etc)
Flames fans, if other teams fans think your team ise boring that is their right. So get over it. You probably find their team boring at times too, that is your right. No need to get into a p*ssing match. Just enjoy winning.
