Flames Flames vs Canucks, 7:00 MDT. Sportsnet West, Fan 960

Four more of these until the season's out of it's misery. And all of them against Vancouver.

I might watch, but I also might find some paint drying somewhere.

This game's a make-up date for a previously delayed game, so technically this cartoon is still new. And dammit, I'm proud of it so it gets another go!

Spoiler!

Hoping to see a lot of Ritchie and Nordstrom this evening. Nesterov out for defensive zone faceoffs would be good as well. Let's do this.

Agreed. It's always a much better message to lose all the games in the beginning and middle of the season instead of the last four after elimination.

The Canucks are doing a much better job of tanking than the Flames. I expect the Flames to win 3/4 (they will lose one as even when they are trying to win they are prone to stinkers which is why we are where we are today) to close out the season.

Don't know what the point of dressing Markstrom is. Give the guy a rest already.

Valimaki sitting.

Markstrom starting.

Yea, not even gonna bother to watch and I typically watch no matter what.

I’m nearing my wits end with this organization as I don’t really know what they are trying to achieve by playing UFAs who have no future in this organization over rewarding some of the players who did well on the Heat for games that are essentially exhibition matches.

I don’t get it.

Go Flames. At least put in an effort. I don't know why you guys think we are going to automatically win. If there is one thing they taught us this year is consistency is not their friend.

My guess is Markstrom probably wants to play a couple games (2 of 4 remaining) and they probably asked him what ones he wanted to play.

My guess is he plays the next two, and then might not even dress the last two games of the year (the afternoon ones).
