flames v. 'nucks: pregame

so i've been working my butt off for the past week, on a crazy busy (but fun !) job. so today i slept till noon and am gonna laze out the rest of the afternoon on the couch watchin' the teev. i feel kinda shattered, but i think it's largely because the studio yesterday was so dry, and i was so flat out busy...

[cool stuff, though --like a serval , a kickass skateboarder , a bmx trickster , and a really nice (and talented) kid named zeb . watch for it in a panasonic commercial in may...]

BUT back to the flames, which is why we're all here. i didn't get much of a chance to keep up with my team's actions this week, but i did enjoy listening to peter maher call the shootout whilst drinking beers with the dudes on tuesday. and i got awesome text updates from jason thru both games in minny. giggles with a hattrick ? DANG ! i think he's statistically more likely, on any given night, to get a gordie howe hat trick --and thus the 'true' one was a bit of a gift...

as far as the game tonight, leanne pointed out that there was a lot of negativity where the bloggers are concerned, and while i am actually quite optimistic that this latest flames team can feasibly stick it to the canucks, i'm thinking that my pessimism is helping the boys win...

this game won't be an easy W, though. sedins are still looking strong, luongo is playing some of the best hockey of his career (with a fairly solid team in front of him), the naslund/morrison line [which i believe is still a line, but i'm too lazy to check] has started producing and what the hell (???), jeff cowan ?

i call a tight match, with the flames losing in OT. but a big part of me thinks we can win thru shock and awe. i might catch the last two periods at the wheat sheaf, if anyone (that means you, ST) is interested in meeting up. lemme know & i'll make some decisions...

terrible post, i know. i'm all over the place.
:)

I praised Huselius recently. Does that count as positivity?
