Game 43 Recap: 500



Ten Thoughts





-Love that Peter Maher, the legend, chucked in a "Yeah Baby!"

-Brent Sutter got his 100th win behind the Flames bench tonight. Who cares.

-Man, the Wild are awful. The Flames iced a quarter of an NHL team tonight.

-FANCY PANTS LANCE had an excellent game tonight and picked up his first NHL goal. He, along with his linemates, were a combined +40 in Corsi.

Miikka Kiprusoff had a really good game. Clay Wilson, too. Blair Jones as well. Really happy with what I saw in the first game.

-The first two periods were mind-numbing. While the Flames were directing a lot of shots towards the net, they were mostly from the periphery.

If you missed the goal:

And Maher’s Call:

Three Stars

1. Jarome Iginla-C'mon, man.
2. Lance Bouma-First NHL Goal.
3. Miikka Kiprusoff-Some excellent saves tonight.


That may be the most fun we'll have watching a game this year. Enjoy it. The Flames' next game is Tuesday against New Jersey.
