Canucks / Flames Preview

There is alot on the line for both teams tonight. The Flames can clinch a playoff spot with a win, and put an end to the Avalanche's playoff hopes. The Canucks can put themselves 5 points ahead of the Wild tonight with a win, and pretty much secure top spot in the Northwest.
The Avalanche did the Canucks a favor this afternoon by beating the Wild 2-1 in regulation. Now will the Canucks do the Avs a favor by beating the only team that Colorado can catch for a playoff spot? A loss in regulation for the Flames means that the Avs will only be 5 points behind them. The Avs and Flames play eachother 2 more times still. Ooo, big pressure on the Flames to win tonight.
Calgary has won their last 5 games. 3 of those wins came on the road, including back-to-back games against the Wild. Are the Flames' road woes over with?
The Canucks have won 5 of their last 6. Their only loss in that span was in the shootout against the Avalanche on March 25th.

Vancouver has won 4 and lost 3 games to Calgary this season.

Jarome Iginla has 1 goal and 4 assists in 7 games against the Nucks this season.
Kristian "The Weasel" Huselius has 5 goals and 3 assists in that span.

The Sedins have 19 points against the Flames this year.
Brendan Morrison has 3 goals and 3 assists.

My Prediction

Oh geez. Tough one. Two defensive teams. Calgary has only allowed 11 goals in their last 6 games...Kipper is red hot...round it off to the nearest whole number....and the Flames take this one 2-1.
Calgary goals by Huselius and Lombardi. Canuck goal by Brendan Morrison.

Anyone else have a prediction?

My prediction is that every time Bob Cole mispronounces a Canuck player, or pauses for an extended period of time for no reason, I am going to have a drink.

I figure by the first intermission I'll be so hammered I won't even notice the shellacking going on.

I also predict that when Hodge and Beaner make an appearance on t.v., they will be holding up a sign with the letters "CBC"... "Cowan's Bras are Crucial!"

5-2 Canucks

D Sedin, Cooke, Bulis, Bieksa (2)

Iginla, Jim Playfair's tie

There is simply no way we are going to lose this game.

It's going to be close methinks. Your prediction is bold...but cool.

OK! I'll join you for every drink with every wrong pronunciation!

also, Canucks win 3-1. nazzy gets the monkey off his back by getting one on the power play. sure, why not?
