flames v. wild postgame: the deadline approacheth

knowing that i can't be the only one who LOVED lazing around the house for a noontime game on a sunday, i presume i was in good company thinking it odd that tangs would leave a game midway through, with what seemed a phantom injury (so close to deadline day).... but would the flames' brass really pull him from a game in progress ?? no, right ? it'd be much classier to pull him off the bus after the game, and leave him standing in the parking lot....

a nice win by the C's today, even though this should've been a much tighter game. voros absolutely scored on the disallowed goal, and kipper should have seen much less rubber. oh, and boy did we take some bad, bad penalties (i'm talkin' to YOU conroy, hale)... still, i like the fact that we haven't been giving up 3-4 goals, of late and i credit that to the addition of vandermeer ---or more specifically, the deletion of warrener & eriksson.

colour me superstitious but the flames are 4-0 with the #18 decal on their helmets....

tanguay's early departure allowed marcus nilson to show he's still interested and able to play, notching some extra minutes with conroy and nolan. of course, nilson's promotion to the second line left the fourth line with no left winger..... so smith and godard just sat around the rest of the game (a total of three shifts for the two players), which pains me to no end....

I am counting down the days until the trade deadline passes and Tangs is still here. TAKE THAT TSN!

I agree, that should have been a goal. Glad it was waved, but Minnesota got robbed on that one.

I missed the first few minutes, did not see Tanguay...thought he was traded. What the hell is a "stinger"?

A stinger is usually just when your nerves misfire for a bit. Not quite as bad as a burner, which isn't quite as bad as a pinched nerve...
