Martin Gelinas scored on the power play just a minute and change into overtime as the Calgary Flames beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 in the 7th and deciding game in their Western Conference QuarterFinal series. The win nets the first series victory for the Flames since the 1989 Stanley Cup Finals against the Montreal Canadiens in the Montreal Forum.

What a game and what a series, though. I wish it could have happened in a later round but I think that we'll be seeing A LOT more of this Vancouver/Calgary rivalry in years to come.

Major props to the Calgary. This was this year for this to happen. With Bertuzzi gone and then Cloutier going down, it just wasn't meant to be for Vancouver this year.

There were a couple bright spots for Canucks fans though. Matt Cooke showed he can play on a top line and contribute at key moments. Alex Auld also showed he can be an NHL goalie. He just needs to get that puckhandling down and improve his positioning a little more and he'll be a legitimate NHL goaltender.

Great game. That said, those refs were way out of hand. The 4 min penalty on Cooke basically decided the game and never should've been called. Then Calgary scores another pp goal in ot. While Cooke's high stick, the slash on the Calgary player, and Jovonaski's slashing were all penalties bv the rule book, you can't call them in the last ten minutes of game 7. I hate to see the refs take over a damn game.

So this sets up Detroit/Calgary and Colorado/San Jose for the second round in the West. Gonna be a pair of tough series, since I think a win like this will only inspire Calgary, not tire them out. I'll take the Wings in 7 and the Sharks in 6.

What was the deal with the coat on the ice? Was that a Bartman situation? Did it potentially cost one of the two teams a win? I only caught it very briefly on SportsCenter, and couldn't figure it out.

The Flames were up 2-1 with less than a minute left. The Canucks had a power play (and pulled their goalie), but Ed Jovanovski got called for cross-checking, making it 6-on-5 (as Auld stayed on the bench for the extra attacker). The Flames won the face-off and Iginla took the puck up the left wing boards into the Canucks zone. One defender was between Iggy and the empty net. A sweater got tossed onto the ice near the left wing faceoff circle (Iginla's side). Iginla shot the puck at the empty net, missing both the sweater AND the net. As play turned back towards the Flames end, the referee bent down to grab the sweater...completely missing Iginla's stick getting slashed out of his hands. Iginla tripped over his stick, allowing the Canucks to get an odd-man break and score the tying goal.

It didn't COST the Flames the game, per ce, the haphazard defensive play in the last minute did. BUT, it didn't help. No coat and Iggy might've cut into the zone more and gotten the empty netter. Then again, we won. Who cares?

What a fantastic, fantastic game and especially the performance by Jarome.

It's great to see this city so fired up.

On a side note, I actually forgot that RAW was in town tonight until I just read through the board.

I hope the Flames can muster something up against the Wings because they are REALLY beat up going into this next series. It was billed as a War of Attrition and there's no way Calgary can go through another series like that and have any bodies left standing. Luckily the Wings aren't the most physical of teams but Cujo looked money in his games. Should be interesting.

There has to be one Canadian team in the Finals this year. We've got 3/8 odds. Now that the Canucks are out, I'll be rooting for the remaining Canadian teams to bring the Cup home.

I was expecting Vince to show up and somehow help Vancouver win the game in OT.

Congratulations to the Flames and their fans. Despite being, on paper at least, a far less talented team, the Flames desire and will to win overcame all obstacles. What can you say about Iginla and Kiprusoff? Both were absolutely fabulous in the series, and were forces that the 'Nucks' goaltending by committee and best player couldn't match up to.

The Flames-Wings series should be a good one, but I just don't see the Flames pulling it off (though I'll be cheering for them). The Wings are too talented and reasonably rested and healthy. Moreover, the Wings can be even more physical than the rather soft Canucks were, while being better in goal and having more experience in the post-season.

I'm calling Detroit in 5 hard-fought games.

I had to settle for the reply.

At 1 pm today, the Barclay's Center and the New York Islanders will be holding a press conference to announce the move of the Islanders from Long Island to Brooklyn. I do not know the time frame of when this move will happen. Edit:
