There have been a TON of blowout games this year. Odd.

From Flames TV on Sportsnet.

To paraphrase, "The Flames have plenty of good prospects and Edmonton has maybe one or two. Hall looks blue chip but might not pan out."

Just ridiculous.

Keep on believing Flames Nation.
They also said they have at least 4 "great" prospects in ortio (which none of them could even remember his name) ramage (LOL), howse and erixon.

oh and peter mahr or what ever his name is the one that said hall might not pan out.

bunch of doofuses if you ask me

Unreal save by Howard, on D. Sedin nonetheless.

Canucks just killing Detroit too. Canucks have a chance on running the entire season without a loss?

As I said, I have no clue as to why they have their own show.

Every great regular season team goes through a "funk" eventually. There are three months and change left in the season.

Canucks will loss eventually (if not tonight). They won games by skill, by luck, by hard work.

But no way in hell, can this continue to go on all year.

In typical Canucks and President's Trophy winners fashion they will wait till the playoffs or their funk just like they have in the past.

Howard is putting on a clinic. Multiple HON candidates.

Just a disgraceful dive by Luongo in overtime negates a Detroit win.

The refs gonna call that off every single time. Bertuzzi needs to be smarter than that.

I can't believe that Simpson is defending the non-goal call there in OT. Yeah, maybe Bertuzzi got a little close to Luongo but uh, considering that the Canuck player was responsible for Bertuzzi bumping Luoooo I find it hard to agree with the call.

Yup, but they shouldn't especially when the contact is caused by a teammate.

The Canuck made more contact with Luongo than Bertuzzi did.

Luongo falls down if someone breathes on him.

It's a ridiculous call. If you're going to call no goal based on "goaltender interference" then give Bertuzzi a penalty. Total bush league.

Justice served. Too bad it didn't end in regulation.

I never thought that I'd ever be a Red Wings backer but here we are.

Disappointing loss for the Nucks tonight, but they'll be fine and back on a winning streak soon enough. Must sting to lose to the Wings without Datsyuk at home though.

how the hell was that a dive by Luongo, Bertuzzi clipped him, Luongo may have embellished slightly but Detroit's lucky they weren't penalized and Bertuzzi made no attempt to stop and wasn't pushed either.

Anyways Vancouver better pray they finish 1st overall in the league because if they meet Detroit in the playoffs they are doomed. Red Wings were completely and utterly undermanned, played for about 25 minutes tonight, dominated for stretches during the 3rd period and come out with 2 points. Easily the best team in the NHL at the moment. Howard was also phenomenal. Two, 10 bell saves tonight.

What happened to Vancouver tonight is the Same thing that happened to Edmonton yesterday although not as destructive.

Basically facing a crappy team one night and then immediately facing an elite team the next. The Change in skill level is a shock to the system.

It's not an excuse, Detroit played a ****** Calgary team last night and went to a shootout as well, after a hellacious comeback. Vancouver didn't let Edmonton into the game at any point, played at a high level and squashed the Oilers 6-1. Vancouver played a good game tonight, Detroit is just that much better, they are never intimidated by who they play and are used to being in this position. 1st in the league during mid-season doesn't mean **** for Vancouver, still a ton left to prove.

Bertuzzi made a foolish cut inside the crease area but I still saw contact made by a Canucks player which heightened the impact. Of course... Luongo would have went down either way because that's just how he rolls.

And Stuart and Cleary and Filppula and Modano. They are actually getting eaten alive by injuries, just like the Oilers. Shows how good they are they can still compete everynight with out their best forward, 3 more top 9 forwards and a top 4 dman.

That's one way of looking at it. I saw the game pretty even in the first and the score indicated it. Then in the 2nd the Oilers had to great chances they didn't finish the Canucks got a gift from Khabbi and the rest is history.
