Although I didn’t get to see any of the first period (who knew it’d be impossible to watch the game at a bar?) I would have to say this is the Flames most impressive win yet. Vancouver may not be the best team in the league, but they play a defensive style and boast Luongo in net. To fall behind 2-0 and then come back is the sort of character proving game the team needed. Nice to see all three goals were scored in ways that showcased the Flames potential offensive flair as well.
Iginla (Tanguay) on a breakaway that once again proved Iginla’s dominance over Ohlund
- Warrener (Tanguay, Iginla) on a nice fake->pass->pass->shoot play.
- Huselius (Lombardi) in which Lombardi showcased his speed and Huselius his hands.
Actually I thought Huselius looked good all night again. He might not always get points, but he often draws penalties and creates good chances.
Once again, congrats to Peter Maher, going to the hall of fame. If you ever catch a game being broadcast by FSN you’ll realize just how truly great Mahar is. Plus Jim Hughson said tonight that Maher has done 2700 straight games for the Flames. How many other employees do you know that have shown up for 2700 straight workdays? Of course, I doubt many jobs compare to Peter’s! Anyway, all Flames fans know and love Maher, and he really deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame.
