Cross Canada Battle - Canadiens Vs Flames

A great matchup tonight at the Bell for all canadian hockey fans.

A team I learned to love two years back against my Habs - should be a dandy!

I enjoy watching the Flames play. I belive they have three future Hall Of Ffamers in their lineup - Iginla, Kipprusof, and Phaneuf. These guys will still be great players in ten years and this contributes to the big game atmosphere of this evening tilt.

I'll be watching the last two periods from the VCR because of Alice being in town.

An interesting stat I came across earlier today is that the Habs currently have the leagues best penalty killing unit while the Flames sit dead last on the PP. Trends don't usually hold much water with me,but it is an interesting setup for tonight. All that I've read on the Flames is that they are struggling. Things can turn around rather quickly in this game, as both Carolina and Nashville seem to be getting it together in the last few games.

Seems the Carbonneau coached Habs, who haven't lost in regulation yet, are well guided by the mass of penalty killing specialists in the organization and behind the bench. Hopefully, this one trend holds water.

I'll be pretty late posting on the outcome of tonights game. I'll be screaming "School's Out" like some cheese eating high school kid until 11!

Oh yeah, one more thing! About the girl in the Hab gear - she's hot and puts out like all good female Hab fans. Big time!
