go flames go!

We are off to the hockey game tonight- Calgary vs Ottawa. This is the first Flames game either of us has seen in quite some time so we are definitely excited. I'll be sporting the go flames go t-shirt and Jordan will be sporting his "old-school" jersey (the one that is more orange than red). I'm sure we won't stand out at all.

Number of Flames Jerseys seen on my way home from work today: 3
Number of Senators Jerseys seen on my way home from work today: 0
It must be a sign.

I hope the Flames play better than they did on Monday here in Calgary. I was at that game and it was terrible!

Go Flames Go!

man the flames need to learn how to score more, im glad both albeta teams are off to great starts ... at least the one up north makes the games exciting.

K said...

low scoring and exciting are not mutually exclusive...with the exception of most of the first period, the game was pretty exciting

Kris said...

That's true, 3 billion soccer fans can't be wrong.

okay, granted a low scoring game CAN be exciting (and yes i like soccer so i can understand this) but the flames bore me. Maybe if there was an outside chance that some goal scoring was going to happen i could get revved up for the game... but they shut out ottawa, one of the most offensivly exciting teams.. and only scored one themselves. i dont know i just see the same thing happening to them this year as last. make the playoffs but not making it anywhere because you cant win 1-0, 2-1 games forever

... oh, and what if kipper gets hurt. better go find some wood.

I agree that last nights game was pretty good even though it was only a 1-0 game. I am glad they got a win when you guys were there.

Nathan is right though, if Kipper ever gets hurt they are screwed. He is so freaking good!

While last nights game was a good game I still would rather watching my team score 6 goals:)

Nathan, Ottawa was a high powered offence last season. This season they have had just as much trouble scoring as the flames. As far as Kipper getting hurt, that is a scary thought. However Roloson is the same for Edmonton, other than last night's game against San Jose he's been great and kept them in it and been a large part of the wins that they have. If he got hurt it'd be the same as if Kipper got hurt.

and lets not forget Smyth breaking one of the greatone's records 3 goals in just over 2 minutes .. now thats exciting.

--Nathan-- said...

oh and i have to disagree with you Devo... Roloson DID get hurt last year (at the worst possible time) and Markennen took them to game 7 and lost by a goal. now i dont want Rolli to get hurt and the oil are a much better team with him in... but its not the same situation as calgary... edmonton can score 5 goals a game if need be and win 5-4, calgary will be hard pressed to scrounge enough offence to equalize the non-kipper factor.

K said...

what...none of you trust that "noodles" will keep the puck out?

(smyth is just too ugly for me to get behind ;-)

Anyone who says that the game wasn't exciting because there was only one goal did not see the game. End to end action and plenty of scoring chances. The goalies stood on their heads, as they say. Calgary is in trouble if Kipper gets hurt, but so what. Every team is in trouble if their stars go down. Scoring bad deflection goals (ie. all of Smyth's in the third) is not nearly as exciting as hard hitting, hard forechecking and plenty of scoring chances even if they don't result in goals. Edmonton is good (their offence is scary good) but their D is soft and you can't win in the long-run without D. Last year Calgary won the division without scoring a lot and lost in the playoffs because they got out-worked not necessarily because of anaemic offence. Anyway, that is my defence of the Flames (although they do have to score more and be better than 1 for 30 on the PP).

I love it when Jordan comes out for a rant!

I agree that it was a very exciting game...although our PPV crapped out in the third and we had to listen to it on the radio for all but the last minute of the period.

Go Flames! That game last night was just a hiccup, this is going to be a great season no matter what that dirty oilers fan Nathan says!
