Calgary Flames Advance to Stanley Cup Final

Well they did it! The Flames beat San Jose for a berth in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The good news is that the Lightning and the Flyers are going to beat up on one another in a Game 7 while Iggy and the boyz get a couple of well deserved days of R 'n' R.

Flames Fan

Here's a pic sent to me by my buddy Dan ahead of Monday night's game in San Jose, which the Flames took 3 - 0.

As I write this, the Sharks have just scored to break Kipper's shut out.

Bubs and myself are hoping that the Flames can get the "home ice monkey" off their backs and win one @ home.

It's 2-1 Flames after 40 minutes -- twenty minutes to the Cup final and another "Gong Show" on 17th Ave in Calgary -- GO FLAMES GO!

Lake Louise and the Flames

This link is to a panoramic picture I took of the Bow Valley a little over a year ago while skiing @ Lake Louise.

As nice as Vancouver Island is, I miss Calgary and the Rocky Mountains.

Speaking o' same, it's 'bout time the Flames woke up and got on with business. The "pivotal game 5 in the series" with San Jose goes in a couple of hours, and both teams find themselves "with their backs against the wall." Cliches notwithstanding it's time for the Flames to "kick it up a notch" (to borrow one from cooking ;-) and take the next step on the road to Lord Stanley's Cup.
