Calgary Flames vs Anaheim Ducks: Round 2 Playoff Quotables

A round-up of some of the best quotes from Round 2 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.



Even though the Flames were dominated by the Ducks – at least they didn’t get swept! – some fun was still had by all. Here’s a look back at a tough series and the end to an amazing season for the Find-a-way Flames/Cardiac Kids/Calgary Third Periods.

As usual, quotes were pulled from the Calgary Flames website, or from Twitter/television coverage (unless otherwise stated).

The Funnies

Bob Hartley (Flames doing their homework to prepare for Ducks – April 28), tongue planted firmly in cheek

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – April 29), or as he prefers to go by, Captain Obvious

Tim Jackman of the Ducks (Ducks Morning Skate Report – April 30), someone get buddy a thesaurus

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 2), on the over-flooded ice prior to practice.

Mikael Backlund (Flames look to even series in Game 2 – May 2), he who speaks the truth (and pokes a bit of fun at the Vancouver Canucks)

Bob Hartley (Flames look to even series in Game 2 – May 2), if you know Calgary, it ain't that blue collar – maybe he'd rather play in Edmonton?

Bob Hartley (Flames’ Bennett not playing like a rookie – May 4), not sure it’s ‘classy’ to state that so outright, Bob. But nice metaphor for Sam Bennett

Bob Hartley (Morning Skate Report – May 5), on his (over-) usage of Kris Russell, Dennis Wideman, and TJ Brodie

Ryan Getzlaf of the Ducks (Ducks Morning Skate Report – May 5), get outta here Getzlaf – and man if we could have dropped his banner just a bit so the flames from a goal would have lit it on fire

Joe Colborne and Mikael Backlund (Backlund’s board jump caps Calgary’s Game 3 comeback – May 6), dare to say, Joe’s best call of the series

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 6), if I can get a rebate I'll totally try out a full membership

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 6), and thankfully he didn’t see that in ‘little’ guy, Johnny Gaudreau

Mikael Backlund (, no one would have faulted that Mickis – you deserved it

Joe Colborne (, good to know, Joe (but adorable)

Mikael Backlund (Flames Today – May 7), on his nod on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (cover photo)

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 7), on his interest in Chicago Fire (the only TV he watches beside hockey)

The Fuzzy Feelings

Bob Hartley (Upstart Flames earn date in Disneyland – April 26)

Mikael Backlund (Flames move focus forward on preparing for Game 2 – May 1), thanks for the hope Mickis

Karri Ramo (Flames Today – May 2), they did, and we did

Bob Hartley, David Jones, and Joe Colborne (Flames focused on turning series around at home – May 3), giving us some love

David Jones and Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 4), the Flames and the fans – a relationship that feeds off each other

Mikael Backlund (Backlund's board jump caps Calgary's Game 3 comeback – May 6)

Bob Hartley (Five Takeaways: Game 3 – May 6), and we kept believing

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 6), on Johnny Gaudreau. We couldn't agree more

David Jones (Surprising run ends, value doesn't for Flames – May 11), what's this wet stuff in my eye?


Bob Hartley (Flames Today – April 29)

Bob Hartley (Flames look to even series in Game 2 – May 2)

Bob Hartley (Flames Today – May 4)

Bob Hartley (Flames believe they can 'Shock the hockey world' – May 9), you already did boys

One Last Laugh

These guys deserve a standing O for what they accomplished this season.

Thank you, Flames.
