Icon25 WCQF-G3: (P1) Calgary – 1 @ (W2) Colorado -1 ~ 8:00pm (CBC, CNBC, TVA2)

Welcome to Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarter Finals





Projected starters, not confirmed at the time of posting https://leftwinglock.com/starting-goalies
Calgary Flames – Mike Smith
Colorado Avalanche – Philipp Grubauer
The Flames fell in overtime in game 2 by a score of 3-2.

While Nathan MacKinnon played like he was on steroids, HGH, speed and whatever other bodily substance you can think of, the Flames nearly pulled last game out. A lucky bounce for the Avs to tie, and a lucky bounce to keep the puck out of their net in OT were the two big game breaks.

If you look at the infographic from game 2, you’ll see things are nearly a dire
at they appeared in the game 2 post game thread.

Spoiler!


Overall records:
(P1) Calgary Flames 50-23-7-107
(W2) Colorado Avalanche 37-29-14-88
Best of 7 Series:
(P1) Calgary Flames – 1
(W2) Colorado Avalanche – 1
The game will be broadcast on CBC, CNBC for our American friends, et mes amis qui parle la lang français TVA Sports 2.

Go Flames Go

Sweet! I will need a nap later myself, heh.

Whose jersey are you wearing? I have tossed mine (Chucky) on already, but only for the cats' entertainment because I am gloriously off work today/tonight. Sorry in advance, neighours! GFG!

Hopefully we will see more urgency on the road as it's a bit of a disappointment they wasted one of Smith's best efforts in game two. It would be nice to get off to a quick start and have the Avalanche abandon their defensive shell which has been surprisingly good thus far.

I am also rocking Chucky at work today, but will later switch to Gaudreau Adizero away. The tradition is; I have to wear what they are wearing on the ice during the game.

Really really curious to see how the first 10 mins go in this one. Do the flames come in on fire and trying to dictate play or will they try to 'weather the storm'.

I feel like other than parts of the 3rd/OT, the flames have been trying to weather the storm.

Go Flames Go!

I've got nothing but confidence going into tonight's game. Game 2 was a big playoff hockey lesson and you could see with they way OT was played they caught on quick. Big win coming.

Go Flames Go!

The Avs needed to play their best game of the season, couple with a sleeping Flames team, all with a Super Human performance from Mack just to squeeze out an OT win.

If the Flames play like they can, they will win.

Just win. I want to see some desperation tonight as all I keep hearing is "well the flames have another gear" but have yet to show it. I'm starting to believe this is all we will get with this team. I'm not panaking as I think we're still in great shape bit I want to see some hustle tonight. GFG

I have a feeling it will be a high scoring win for the Flames. 6-2 for the good guys with Gaudreau and Neal getting on the scoresheet with 2 goals each.

The Flames are the better team. They will probably win tonight. And the next game. And the game after that.

Flames win this no problem. Lets see if McKinnon can continue playing 25 plus minutes.

The kid is a stud. He can absolutely play 25 minutes a night, especially when there's a guarantee of no back to backs. He might wear out after a couple of weeks, but that won't help us in the first round.

The Flames are going to win this series, but MacKinnon is gonna wear our guys out more than we're gonna wear him out.

Easily. Averaged 22 mins this season.

I don’t understand the “Flames weren’t the better team in game 1” talk. How quickly we forget.

It's only the beginning of the first round and we are talking about a 23 year old just entering his prime and physical peak. Maybe in the conference finals we could discuss burnout at 25 minutes per night but it's not going to be a problem every 2nd day for the first round. He will look as fresh on game 7 of this series as he did on game 1.
