As he we head into game 2 for the ‘Nucks and Flambes, here are a few thoughts.
Tickets in Calgary are hard to come by for games 3 & 4, but one radio station is giving away ducats. All you have to do is call in win hear the sound of a riot, or should it be sound of rioting.
Although neither team is overly physical, especially with Zack Kassian out, I think we will see some more ooopmh ce soir. It will have Habs/Senators type passion, but the temperature should go up.
The Flames business trip is already a success with a victory in Game 1.
The Canucks seem calm and confident. Mainly because they have always had the ability to bounce back this season after dropping one or two games. They have not lost three games in a row since early January.
Remember all that smoke being blown about the Flames lack of playoff experience? Fuggetabout it. Both teams’ youngsters looked like they could handle the big stage. How special will it be to see Horvat, Monahan, Bennett, and Johnny Hockey battle against each other for the next decade? The ‘Nucks will need some Utica Comets to develop to keep the rivalry from being one sided.
The last thing we are expecting is blowout tonight. Just one empty net goal in game one of the regular season kept these two teams from having five, one-goal games in five outings.
All stop watches on many phones will get heavy use tracking Sedins ice time. To save yourself from not enjoying the game, just check in with NHL.com, you’ll find all you need there.
Finally it’s Friday, not many of us are working tomorrow. Are we ready for a little late night REAL overtime? Next goal wins!
