Flames Show Life

Second best game of the year? Behind Vancouver Game Six.

Bollig scored. Colborne scored (on a break away!). A rookie scored and had it disallowed. Another rookie scored with twenty seconds left to put it into overtime. Backlund puts it away in overtime.

The hockey gods love us and want us to be happy. What more proof could you want?

***

The Flames gave out pom poms for the game, which was smirk inducing. The pom poms were red and yellow. Which means they became orange when viewed from afar. I would imagine they looked orange on TV.

Pretty dumb.

Hopefully they fix that before the next game. The noise sticks they gave away for the Vancouver series would be a better 'thing' than these pom poms.

Flames should give out duck calls, obviously.

***

At least seven people fell traversing the stairs in my nosebleed section.

Good line from one of the fallers: "Doing my best Prentice impression!"

***

The Saddledome did not announce anything out to the crowd about the election. I have been to games played on days where elections were held, and they usually announce who wins. So I thought that was kinda funny.

My line yesterday was "They didn't announce because everybody in the Saddledome for a playoff game has a job."

***

The NHL video review guys who were in the Toronto war room for the game last night should not be allowed to work another playoff game for the rest of the playoffs.

The Flames scored and the video guys in Toronto disallowed it because they wanted an American team to win. What other explanation holds water?

If the Flames had lost, the video guys were putting the refs of that game in a bad spot. Would they have been able to leave the parking lot without getting torn limb from limb?

Just poor work. It-Was-In Part Two.

Someone buy the Ducks a trip to Banff. Maybe we can get them dehydrated for the game on Friday.

Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
