2-1 loss tonight in the Battle of Alberta. Flames played extremely well but the bounces weren't going our way tonight. Oilers to their credit, also played extremely well.

The Battle is heating up:
AP wrote:
The Oilers stretched their lead 35 seconds into the second period on a tremendous effort by Hemsky. He danced around Flames defenseman Robyn Regehr and then deked Kiprusoff before putting a backhander into the net to make it 2-0.

"We all saw the irony in that," MacTavish said. "Regehr roughs him up a bit after a whistle and 15 seconds later he's past him and it's in the net."


MacTavish rekindling the rivarly and possibly trying to jumpstart his team. He could be pushing the right buttons because Oilers are only 8 points back of the division lead and 5 points back of a playoff berth.

Tonight's game is how hockey is meant to be played. Every shift was a battle.

Curtis Joseph signed as Kipper's backup.

Great signing. Proved he could still play in the Spengler Cup.

Prediction: He will have the best goalie helmet in the league. (Or maybe second to Rick Di's current helmet.)

Kipper will finally get some rest.

First place in the Northwest. 58 points through 50 games. 6-3-1 record over the last 10 games. After the slow start, this team really kicked it in gear.

Flames mid-season (OK, more like 5/8ths-season)/All-Star Break Awards and Observations:
Team MVP: No question. Hands down this award goes to Iginla. 63 points and a +17 rating so far. The PIMs are down, but a couple of his scraps really helped jumpstart the team and with guys like Goddard, Phaneuf, and Nystrom on the team he really hasn't had to fight.

Team Goat: Anders Ericksson. Nothing against the man, but he pisses me off more than any other Flame. I'll find myself cursing him out more than any other Flame over the course of a game. He's been pretty shakey in his own zone and rarely delievers a good breakout pass. He has also had too many costly giveaways in the offensive zone which have led to odd man rushes and breakaways. Still, he works every shift and has been a pleasant suprise on the PP.

Most pleasant suprise: Cory Sarich. You see his 4 points in 50 games and immediately are turned off. However, he has been one of the most consistent defensemen for the Flames. He is more than solid in his own zone, has great positioning, and is capable of playinig 20 minutes every night. 5 years for $18 mil is looking like a bargain now.

Key for the rest of the season: Keenan has to find a way to get Kipper going. Hopefully the Cujo signing will take some of the burden off Kipper and he will regain form. With our lack of secondary scoring, we cannot keep playing in high scoring games and need Kipper to change that. And I have faith that he will.

Thanks for reading and commenting so far.

5-4 win against the Sharks in the first game back after the All-Star break. Owen Nolan had a hat trick and also got into a scrap with Mike Grier.

He was the story tonight. Kipper played fairly well despite the 4 goals allowed.

Great comeback victory against Phoenix last night. Down 3-0 going into the 3rd and Jarome Iginla was able to tie it up with 9 seconds left. He then scored the game winner in the shootout.

Hopefully this game will get Iggy going again. Before his 3rd period goal, he had not scored in 11 games.

Phaneuf scored the other two goals for us. One on the power play and another on a really flukey shot where Dion broke his stick but still managed to trickle it by Iyla Bryzgalov.

Great team effort last night.

Two goals each from Iginla and Dion and another win over Phoenix last night. Final was 4-1. 68 points through 60 games played so far, which is good for 8th in the West.

Since February 18th everything has been dampened by the death of Flames prospect Mickey Renaud. Not much is known now. Just terrible, terrible news. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Story
Quote:
"When I think of Mickey, I look at that big goofy smile of his, every day looking to come to the rink, looking to make somebody's life a little bit better," said Tom Webster, a scout for the NHL's Calgary Flames, which drafted Renaud last year.

"The hockey community is going to miss a very good person."

Game tonight vs. Columbus at 9:00 PM.

With two goals in a 3-1 Flames victory on Saturday vs. Phoenix, Jarome Iginla tied the Flames all-time goal scoring record of 364 goals held by Theo Fleury. Iggy now has 79 points in 66 games this season.

Cujo stopped 16 of 17 shots and looked solid against his former team. And Rhett Warrener got the other goal for the Flames.

Past three games for the Flames: 1-0 Win vs. Columbus on the 4th, 2-1 OT Loss vs. Nashville on the 7th, and 7-3 Win vs. St. Louis tonight.

We were able to get a few bounces go our way tonight. In fact, we pretty much got all the bounces. The three first period goals all bounced off Blues defenders. Handed St. Louis a nice beat down. And Jarome Iginla is now the Flames all-time leading goal scorer with his 365th on a nice one timer from Huselius (one of the goals to bounce off a defender).

Lombardi was flying tonight. He had a shorthanded goal where he absolutely burnt the Blues defenseman and then made a nice deke to pot it.

Dustin Boyd played an outstanding game and I hope to see him in the lineup more often.

Ouch. Back to back losses to Washington and Atlanta.

I watched the Washington game and they unveiled the OvechKam (or something like that). It is garbage. More than half the screen is a camera following Alex for the entire game. That's right, even when he's on the bench. Then like a quarter of the screen is the normal game angle. A TERRIBLE idea. I really felt like calling up and complaining. Why do I need more than half the screen devoted to one guy? Some of the worst coverage of a game I have ever seen. And we lost the game to boot.

Cujo got roughed up tonight allowing 5 goals to Atlanta. A 6-4 final after Atlanta got an empty netter with around a minute left.

And one more time, the OvechKam is garbage.

I agree, I had the displeasure of seeing it too and it was very amateurish.

We are now 1 point back of Minnesota for 1st in the Northwest Division through 74 games played. Currently 7th overall in the West, but the 3rd seed is easily attainable.

Game tomorrow vs. Minnesota at 10:00 PM. It is a great opportunity to steal some points and move ahead of them.
