Deserted Dogs - Game #47 -730pm

The Coyotes are in town tonite at 730pm. This is the 2nd meeting, as they met before in Game #24 -

A brief look back:
[Image: TkachukCoyotes_medium.jpg]
November 25th the Flames land in Phoenix, still smarting from a 2-0 loss to Vegas. Since the Flames had been scoring big this was a letdown they were expected to answer. Phoenix team was poor at scoring but good at stopping shots so were expected to be a challenge. Their cap was lamented having fillers like Bolland, Hossa, Demers, buyout Ribeiro and part of Smith's salary,so it made sense that Smith would start in goal. Valimaki was injured in Vegas so Kylington and Lomberg were recalled from Stockton.

The lineup showed the rookies split up but once the game started Andersson and Kylington played together. Cassie noted they never played together in Stockton as Andersson was paired with Wotherspoon. Line #1 opened the scoring with John setting up Sean. Czarnik gets penalized but Hanifin scores shorthanded. 

**At this point in the broadcast they stated that Hanifin was overjoyed to have a regular D-partner. In all his time in Carolina he NEVER had a regular partner. Unbelievable. 

In the 2nd period Bill Peters blocks a shot on the bench that sends him to the room for stitches. Neal set up Hanifin for his 2nd goal and Neal's 500th point. Lindy misses a penalty shot but Brodie sets up Janko for a tap in and it's 4-0 after 2. Brodie scores a shorty to open the 3rd then Janko scores shorthanded, it's 6-0 and they pull Niemi/Raanta and put in Calgary boy Hill. Smith is finally beaten by Keller and it's 6-1 final. 6 goals, 3 shorthanded, 3 by defencemen, solid goaltending, a pretty solid game. Oh yah, and the Calgary Stampeders win the Grey Cup

So now these same Desert Dogs come down the QE2 after defeating the Oilers 3-2 last night. Solid goaltending and stout defence, with just enough offence is their trademark. They can create a problem if the Flames dont bring their fast, hard charging rib-rock defensive game, like last time. Questions have been raised about their efforts of late, they've been called sloppy and careless.

But......they keep winning. As long as they do, it's hard to be too critical, unless nitpicking is your thing. Another win tonight means one step closer to the playoffs. So take that step Boyz, bring your A game. Run those dogs out of town!

Go Flames GO!

So I'm curious FF. Do you record all the games in order to do a history moment? Take notes? Have a special website to go to?

A Ryan Pike article from Flamesnation.com. I had no idea Gio was reaching this milestone. Way to go Gio!

Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano will hit a fairly major milestone tonight when he suits up against the Arizona Coyotes. It will be Giordano’s 800th regular season game in the National Hockey League. As we look forward to his big game, we take a look back at some past milestones and just what he’s meant to the Flames franchise.

Yes to all.
If you go to Flames/schedule, the icons on the game take you to hilites, game sheet,etc. But the best source is still our very own game threads that hilite the moments etc. Then Sportsnet/Teams has their current status, injuries and standings.

Research, hard work and early morning coffee all contribute Cool

It will be interesting to see how many minutes the 4th line gets tonight.

As I said yesterday, I want to see the 3rd line have a big night and Frolik to continue his strong play.

I hope the coach gets off Fros ass now . Yea maybe he has been passed by by Sam but Sam still is t scoring . Secondary scoring is needed and with Neal not getting it done the second line seems to be able to get it done when Fro plays on it . Something to be said about comfort on that line between the old dogs on the 3 M line . When Fro isn’t scoring he still isn’t hurting that line . Leave him Alone I say and reevaluate things in the off season . 
        Get some rest Johnny , with Smith playing we are going to need your A game tonight !

No matter who you are.., you should not get demoted when you are playing your best hockey of the season.

Those other guys need to prove they can contribute something positive with 4th line minutes, before they are given bigger roles.

Playing Fro on the 4 line wasn't necessarily a demotion. There are many reasons why a coach might want to make a move like that. For example, if the coach knows that a player might not be around going down the stretch he might want to see what others can do. Or, as Peters said, he thought we weren't starting on time and wanted to change the make-up of the 2nd line in an attempt to start on time. When it was apparent that didn't work, he switched back.

Personally the perception of the 3M line over the last three years has been that they're a shutdown line more than a line for secondary scoring. What is often lost to coaches and fans alike is the skill level that they all bring. They can score and they can check and that is going to give Peters and Tre a headache going into the trading deadline and next season.

You can keep rationalizing and justifying it

It was the wrong decision.

In other news, Carolina beat up Nashville today 6-3. They lit Renne up for five goals and former Flame What der Ferk beat up some guy named Watson with 3 punches and had two assists in about 11 minutes of ice time.

4 line has struggled their first couple of shifts. They are getting knocked off of the puck.

A couple of good shots of the Coyote rookie who scored with his face last night against the Oilers.
