There’s still a few minutes left in the Calgary-Vancouver game, but man it feels like the Flames are starting to hit their stride from the 2003 Stanley Cup run. Very physical game. Fast. Kobasew just hauled ass over half the length of the rink to prevent an icing call – a great race for the puck. They also killed a 5-on-3 powerplay! That was incredible.
And Kipper? Dayum! He’s on FIRE! Can’t believe some of his saves so far!
Vancouver’s holding their own, too. Auld is rocking in their net, and they’ve had lots of great chances that were stopped only because Kipper is working his magic.
Update: Yeah! They took it! First time they’ve won 3 in a row since 2003 🙂
