Bounce back game, should be able to get a W if they continue to play hard.

any word on Tanguay? Thought he was aiming to be back tonight?

Not that every game from here on in won't be, but this is a really key game. The Flames have lost 2 in a row and it is important to see how they are going to respond. The Avs are gonna come out real hard due to their recent woes, so the Flames need to match that. I expect this to be another playoff type of game, should be a tight and physical one.

Aww he's not playing tonight. I haven't seen him play since his return. But lets hope the Flames can get a win.

Feeling pretty confident about tonight. 4-1 Flames, Iggy with the hattrick.

By the way, did Conroy always wear #24 while he was with the Flames?

Nope, pretty sure he wore #22 during the Cup run, then when he left for LA, we got Langkow who took over #22. When we reacquired Conroy, I believe he took #24.

He will come out of retirement next season and make another comeback. He is the Brett Favre of the NHL.

The best part is how this is such a burn on the fans. Plays two road games and calls it quits when everyone is excited to see him play at home tonight.

Seems like there are a bunch of scouts at our games all the time now. Funny how now that we've got a good thing going they all want a piece of the action. Just like women.

An injury riddled team playing their back up goalie should be an easy win, but Colorado does usually give the Flames a headache for whatever reason.

Definitely need the win to get back on track, and sounds like we've got a good chance.

Sounds like Tanguay might play tonight which is great, but rushing back from a "not quite concussion" is not exactly a good long-term plan.

Go Flames!

correction Anderson gives us a headache... against Budaj we do pretty well... he seems to have his confidence shaken against us quite easily for some reason

and this season we are 2-1-0 against them

edit:

Budaj's career stats vs the Flames

21 games played - 7wins - 10 losses - 1 overtime - 3.55 Goals Against Average - .887 Save Percentage
