well the other teams in the NW division went and did the flames a bunch of favours this weekend; first the greasers beat the nucks in front of the entire nation on saturday, then colorado stunned bobbylu and the boys last night in colorado.
on nhl.com, the game's first star (rookie tj galiardi, born and raised in cowtown) pretty much comes straight out and says that he wanted to beat the canucks on sunday cause his dad's a flames fan. that's so amazing i can't even describe it. i bet he wanted to say that HE's a flames fan, but there's probably some unwritten rule that if you get drafted by a team in the same division as your hometown team, you can only talk about your parents being fans... ;)
the heinous agony that was the flames/minny game on friday has subsided and i'm relatively hopeful about tonight's matchup with the kings. word on the street (ie: the flames insider) is that aucoin will play tonight, and if you check the QC flames site (ALWAYS more up-to-date than the big club's site on player movement), it announces that negrin's been sent back to moline and warren peters (a poor man's dustin boyd, and the flames are certainly sans $$) has been recalled. so, unless roy makes a magical return, it would seem the flambés will skate only one man down this eve.
i've got very little else to say other than i'm hoping for a Qmac start, and doubting very much that it will happen.
fingers crossed... ;)
