Calgary Flames vs Vancouver Canucks: Round 1 Playoff Quotables

A round-up of some of my favourite quotes from Round 1 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.



In the past week and a half, there have been plenty of entertaining words shared between the two teams. From the “Ferklund” mishap to the Calgary Flames and their love for eachother and the C of Red, I’ve rounded up some of the quotes that made me laugh or feel all fuzzy inside.

Quotes were pulled from the Calgary Flames website, or from Twitter/television coverage.
