flames v. bolts: post-game (aka: pure sadness)

it's like this.

i think that playfair should've gotten the hook months ago (in retrospect), and now i think it's too late for the flames to salvage the year. which makes me sad, mostly because the team will have a lot of rebuilding to do in the summer. i'm sad that friesen took so long to find his groove, and that he won't get re-signed. i'm sad that conroy's gonna be injured for the rest of the year. i'm sad that amonte sees more ice than ritchie (mmmmm, actually, that's more frustration than sadness).

we looked bad against the preds. we looked good against tampa, but not good enough. and this does not bode well for imaginings of hockey into june...

the good news is that monday is flames v. blues --a game that we COULD win (and still, a game we can definitely lose in the right conditions)... i presume mclennan will get the start, giving kipper a much-needed break. [did anyone see kipps mis-play the icing during a PP in the 3rd, putting his arm up --as he's apt to do-- before realizing not only were the bolts on the PK, but forechecking their way to the puck ??? SOMETHING has GOT to be wrong with kipper...]

oh. and mostly i'm sad for the poor clubbed baby lombo...

:(

looks like he went out with a knee on knee... i am only presuming the injury will be lasting...

Damn I missed that. Hopefully he comes back next game, I haven't really heard anything on it.

I knew I'd get some links with a cute baby seal picture.
