Between the refs, Mark Lee and Kevin Weeks, I’m surprised I made it through this one. Plus the game took over 3 hours to play, which is getting a little long to watch a non-playoff game. I didn’t think the game was spectacular, Kipper let in some softies, Vancouver dove whenever they could, you know – same old, same old. But Tanguay scored on a backhand (backhand?) in the shootout to win it, so we’ll take the two points. Lord knows the extra point to Vancouver means nothing to Calgary!

Well that was a real goaltending duel. Thing is, Andrew Raycroft has been lights out when called upon – certainly better numbers than Kipper has. Luckily for the Flames (tongue in cheek) Kiprusoff wasn’t in net on this night. Karlsson – doing just enough to win - surrendered four goals on 21 shots. The aforementioned Andrew Raycroft? seven goals on 19 shots. Dazzling.
