flames v. stars: pessimism v. realism

somebody told me the other day i'm a total pessimist. i prefer to think of myself as a total realist. the problem being that i KNOW the flames suck in the first period, that they can't seem to win a game with Qmac in net, they're awful in the back to backs and they've almost burned through a ten point lead in the northwest division; losing a bunch of winnable games while vancouver seems to have forgotten how to add numbers in the "L" column.

but i will admit that the only reason i think we're gonna lose tonight is because i'm being entirely pessimistic. dallas should, for all intents and purposes, be a tired squad after a very hard-played (and, i might add, hard-lost) game to the dirty 'nucks last night in the garage. add in some late night travel and/or lost gameday practice time, and the boys from dallas should probably get thoroughly destroyed tonight in the 'dome....

but i really don't think they will. i think they'll come out hard and score a couple in the first, and calgary will try but won't be able to rally back by the end of the third....

here's to hoping i'm wrong.

I'm actually considered something of an optimist... which is funny because my mom is very much the pessimist...
