Looks kight Boca Raton is just going to get a light kiss from the edge of it.

But I digress, I wouldn't want to stop the Jankowski hate that this thread seems to be

Man I'm excited and getting that nervous feeling that every Flames fan knows all too well when we hit the playoffs.

Hope big ol' Jankowski scores the winner.

Go Flames Go!!!

I honestly canít believe that the NHL seems to have pulled this off safely. They are without question the model for a pro sports league for once. They seem to have spared no expense, which as a fan I really appreciate. Good for them and kudos to all involved.

I am happy today. GFG

We aren't going to find out who's starting in goal until the pre game skate are we?

I hear you but letís not count our chickens on that front. They really have done a nice job so far, as has the NBA. And the product in both cases has been excellent IMO.

But this is going to take months of discipline before declaring victory.

I have no idea what to predict here, no idea who is in shape or out, no idea what the Jets look like without Buff, it's a total shrug for me here, I just have no feeling at all going into this series.

I think the Hawks ragdolling the Oilers today shows that this is going to be a weird time - guys are fresh instead of bruised up, who knows how it will shake out...

Forecheck and skate like the Hawks did to open their game and you'll set yourself up for good things.

Let's not do the start slow, claw back in the back half movie. Seen that one one too many times.

Fresh slate.
New mentality.
New habits.
New confidence.

Yep that is exactly how the bottom six should be slotted in. Triple R fourth line!!!

I'm also a fan of energized Rinaldo and would like to see him in here. He's great when he's been chomping at the bit to get game action.
Reider kills penalties as well and is just a better hockey player than MJ at this point.

No issue at all with him in over Janko who has been abysmal all year and was a complete no show when he was given a chance to change some minds.

Im good with a Rinaldo/Bennett/Reider 4th line.

So damn stoked to watch the boys tonight. I have zero expectations, last years playoffs sucked but hopefully the boys learned some things from it. If we start off hot I like our chances to make a bit of noise. GO FLAMES

My friend, you had to be part to the site ages ago to get the reference.

For superstitious sake, he'd always assume a Flames loss (very lopsided at that), in hopes it would result in a Flames' win.

This has been going on for ages
