And Game 1 goes to the Flames, who made Khabibulin look human, and pretty much showed the work ethic that got them to the dance.

An exciting game with a wrestling tie-in as Hulk Hogan's daughter Brooke sang the anthems, as the Hulkster stood behind with a tear in his eye.

Hogan's daughter has been singing the anthems for a while now for Tampa. She'll be singing the anthem at the remaining games in Tampa during the Finals.

Great pace to the game last night. Hopefully it stays that way.

When the board was down I posted elsewhere that I thought Tampa would take it in 6 games - that prediction looked pretty bad after Iginla's SHG - I'll change that to Tampa in 7 games now

I think the real question around this series has to be...can any of Bret Hart's kids sing?

Great start to the finals. It looks like the Flyers wore Tampa down and the Flames look well rested.

Flames in 6.

Flames in five. They'll lose one in a ridiculous manner...but they'll fire back on all cylinders and kick some ass the next day.

Well, I don't know if tonight was ridiculous, but if they're going to kick ass the next day, the Flames may want to save some of it for Saturday when they actually play a game. Just kidding. I know what you meant SOK.

Tonight was exactly what these Finals needed. A win by the Lightning, but so lopsided that we actually got to see a few brew-ha-has (sp?). No one took cheap shots, just the boys letting off a little steam. Man, with what happened tonight, the Lightning are in for a real treat when they hit the Saddledome with thousands of maniacs going wild.

And even though I despise the Flames for beating my Wings, damned if they aren't an easy team to root for, especially with a class act like Iginla leading them. That guy is one the most well-spoken, good-natured, talent-hoarding power forwards I've ever seen. Too bad about the new CBA. I would love to see the Wings go "NY Yankees" on Calgary and sign him away.

GO FLAMES!!!

SOK called it. The Flames basically halted any momentum Tampa had tonight, with Kiprusoff standing on his head and Iginla, Donovan & Simon providing the offense. Iginla was FANTASTIC tonight, beating Vincent Lecavalier in a fight and setting up Simon's goal (which turned out to be the game winner).

I still say Flames in 6, mostly because I want them to win it at home.

Iginla is amazing! While everyone here voted St.Louis for the Hart when the nominees were announced I stood alone and Iginla. I so believe Igninla is no doubt the most important player for his team and best player in the NHL... You got to love the Gordie How hat trick (a goal, an assist and a fight LoL)

It's Howe, but nobody's mad at ya. Iginla's been the difference-maker for the Flames since Valeri Bure got traded a few years back. Without Kiprusoff, we wouldn't be in the Stanley Cup Finals. Without Iginla, we coldn't be in the Finals.

Right now, I say Iginla gets the Conn Smythe narrowly over Kipper, while losing the Hart to St. Louis. Darryl Sutter gets the Jack Adams and Kiprusoff gets the Vezina so everyone goes home happy.

Slow down... Why don't you actually win the Cup before you start handing out awards. I'm not sure what parallel universe you live in where a 2-1 lead is an automatic Cup win.

For the most part, the Ning have been a back-forth-back-forth team, so a 7 game series should be expected. Game 1 was an abboration. There is absolultely no way a RESTED Bolts team will lose two at home from here on out. If the Ning can take Monday, the series is over.

And I say that a rested, disciplined Flames team can beat the rested Lightning. We managed to beat the Red Wings in 6, why not a team that finished lower than the Wings?

And win or lose, I say Kipper or Iggy gets the Smythe.

"We" managed to beat the Wings? Who are you? Steve Montador?

Anyway, if the Flames win (and I think they will), Iggy will get the trophy. However, if the Bolts win, I'm pretty confident that Richards or Lecavalier will get the Conn Smythe.

Nope, but considering how much season tickets have cost since the Flames won the Cup in '89 (and how much money I've sunk into the franchise), I think I've PAID for Steve Montador.

EDIT:
Flames record: vs. Canucks [L,W,L,W,W,L,W], vs. Red Wings [W,L,W,L,W,W], vs. Sharks [W,W,L,L,W,W]
Lightning record: vs. Islanders [W,L,W,W,W], vs. Canadiens [W,W,W,W], vs. Flyers [W,L,W,L,W,L,W]

The Lightning haven't trailed in a series during these playoffs. The Flames haven't trailed since after Game 3 against the Canucks.

Howe on earth did I misspell Goride How name... To quote Don Cherry "I'm such a dumb, dumb"

Darryl Sutter is a great coach but is it me or does he come off as really prickish during the postgame press conference. He certainly likes talking down to reporters, especially ones from Florida
