Kiprusoff out two weeks, Joey MacDonald to the rescue!

12 Feb

Calgary Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff will miss another two weeks with a slight Grade 2 MCL sprain. Two more weeks means that Kipper will miss 12 or 25% of the games this season. Is it too soon to write the season off?

Kiprusoff was hurt at the end of the second period Feb. 5 against the Detroit Red Wings, when he and Johan Franzen collided near the net. The Flames claimed veteran goalie Joey MacDonald off waivers to replace Kiprusoff. He will pair with rookie Leland Irving.

Cammy is back, Street has been sent back to Abbotsford. So much movement, you’d better check out the current Calgary line combo page!

 

Wild 2 – Flames 1 (SO)

12 Feb

The Flames’ craptastic play at home continued, by once again failing in a shootout. Last night was one of those games where Calgary really played to their opponent, which is something they have been doing a lot this year. Hey Vancouver, you want to run and gun? Okay, but we’re not as good at it as you are. Minnesota… you like the defensive sit-and-wait-for-a-turnover approach? We can do that, but not as good as you can.

No wonder this team is in last place, it’s hard to leapfrog teams when you are playing the game you opponent wants to play – but have a lot more experience with it than you do.

I’m telling you, this season is the non-publicized rebuild of the Flames. Watch in April when we start offloading the few assets we have.

You heard it here first… eat it Francis!
