This game was a lot closer than it should have been. The Canucks managed to get to within 1 in the third but couldn’t tie it up before Tanguay scored an empty netter. For some reason it’s cool to step off the gas in the last 10 minutes of the game just to make things interesting.

Penalty trouble got Vancouver behind early in the first with extended 5 on 3 match ups. As usual, the Flames could not capitalize. Vancouver, albeit, had their fair share of powerplays scoring two of their goals on the advantage.
Midway through the second Bouck tried to get his team going after Lombardi’s goal off a Ritchie feed to make it 4-1. Let’s just say Bouck doesn’t have the book on Prust because he got his face pummeled. Luongo was pulled after the 4th goal and ex-Flames Danny Sabourin came in and played strong the rest of the way.
Iginla continues he exceptional play potting three points tonight. 1 goal after hard work downlow and beating Luongo on the cover. He also assisted on Tanguay’s empty netter and  Phaneuf’s powerplay goal in the 1st. The thing is, Iginla’s defensive zone coverage lacks, not because of skill, but effort.

Notes: Warrener left the ice after twisting his knee. That doesn’t look good, look for Girodano to get the call if Zyuzin can’t go by Tuesday. Next up, boring Minnesota. They played for the tie again but managed to win today against Chicago. Hope we can light it up.
