Ducks Playoffs, Round 2, Game 1: What We Know About the Calgary Flames

New, 6 comments

Hey, Ducks Playoff Hockey is back for Round 2! Let's recap what we already know about the enemy...

Jonas is back and there's gonna be trouble

(Hil-ler, Hil-ler, our ex-goalie's back!)

Actually, if the version of Jonas Hiller with the huge five-hole and ungodly rebounds at the worst possible moments shows up for this series, it should work out just fine. 50%-50% chance we get that one, I suppose.

So we're on to the second round, and... wait, what is this shit?! Another relocated Atlanta team to face? What is it with these assholes?

At any rate, let's take a look at the BoC archives and see what we here have learned about the Flames over the years (click the links for more info)...

Okay, I guess what I really learned about the Flames is that, despite how often the California teams play them, none of us really like to blog about them. This is true of the the old Earl/Rudy/Megalodon guard, and it's true of Stace, Dunn, and myself today. When I did this same preview for the Winnipeg Jets last round, I found all sorts of interesting things about that terrible team and city.

I hope this series only goes two games, I'm already out of stuff to write about this team.
