Islanders Visit Calgary: UPDATED!
To ensure victory this evening, the Flames are playing Mikael Backlund. Holy crap that's pants on head crazytalk. Look at those dreamy eyes people he's too pretty to play in the NHL at this point!
So what does this mean for RickD and the Islanders? Well, judging from their league worst performance over the last 15 away games I predict the Flames will burn the island to the ground. Hate to say it, but RickD will be counting down the top 40 worst moments of the 08-09 season in short order.
That being said, anyone who thinks this game is less important than the Sharks game is pants on head retarded (definition). It behooves the Flames to win this game as convincingly as possible if they want the label of 'Elite' team to be branded prominently across their collective asses as opposed to being a mere post-it in the windstorm that is the NHL. NYI could be regarded as a lesser opponent but Elite teams show no mercy and defeat all that stand in their path.
