He used to be property of the Kings.

How about Korolyuk helping out with the empty netter?! OUCH!

What a gutsy playoff run by the Flames so far. They've battled key injuries (don't underestimate the amount of quality players that are out of the Flames lineup) and managed to topple ALL THREE DIVISION CHAMPIONS.

As an NHL orphan (I may be a Flyers fan, but my heart lies with Canadian teams now), I'm wicked excited for Tuesday night.

Forget Kiprusoff, Iginla is GOD.

HOLY GOD. This was seriously a terrific effort by both teams, but the Flames managed to outwork yet another division champion and are now 4 wins away from the Stanley Cup Championship.

This all feels like some great dream, and I hope we never wake up.

By the way, 17th RULED. Opening the theatre SUCKS, but the crowd was awesome. Everyone, regardless of color or creed, was down there celebrating. And the rain made everything nice and cool.

    Please enjoy this picture of the man that scored the Western Conference title-clinching goal, #23 from YOUR Calgary Flames, martin Gelinas.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to 17 Ave SW. No doubt The Goon and Freeway420 are already down in the middle of the craziness!

Just got back from 17th, with a twisted ankle as a souvenir(damn shoes). Some nice boobies, though.

I WAS AT THE GAME. I could hardly breathe for most of the third period. What an amazing sensation to see the puck cross the line just as time expired.

Man, is my ankle swollen. I think I tore something. (shrug)Oh well.

That 2nd goal last night was a thing of beauty - the Flames look to be a team of destiny this year.

and thanks to the Flames (and my shortsightedly selling them short) I will now have to abdicate my throne as Puck Pool King here on the W

Good Luck Calgary and enjoy the run !!!

As a diehard New England Patriots fan who has seen his team win TWO Super Bowls after years of futility, let me just tell you I can TOTALLY relate, and I have adopted the Flames as my team of choice for the playoffs because I hope they win it all for you guys!

Also, how many people at Game 6 were in Flames' sweaters? 80%? Even Mrs. JJD thought that was pretty cool. (Though not cool that she had to sit through the third period. Luckily she fell asleep.)

I have heard through word of mouth that it's been reported that this current Flames' home jersey is the biggest seller of all time(hockey jerseys). Not sure if that was "of all time" or for one season. It's freaky to see so many people in them.

I can't wear them though. With my non-shoulders and short height, even small ones look like an evening gown on me.

edit: It's the biggest selling "new" jersey of all time.

I'd have to say that the Flames are reminding me very much of the Hurricanes team that went to the Cup a couple years back in the fact that they just flat out want to win worse than the other team. I think Barry Melrose said that will beat skill in this series, because on paper the Sharks should have beaten the Flames, but that's why you play the game. I also noticed that when they played in Calgary that it seemed like EVERYBODY had on a Flames jersey. In the start of game 3, I was watching the intros where I thought it was some light effect that made it look like everyone had on red. Oh no...that is something that made me want to like that team...that type of fan support is awesome, and with me living down here in North Carolina, the closest thing I can equate that to is watching a Duke game and seeing their ravid fans. Anyway, its teams like this and games like the elimination of Detroit that could honestly get more people into hockey. I honestly don't know much about it, but they sure do make it fun to watch. Also, Game 7, Go Flyers.
