Calgary Flames vs. Atlanta Thrashers

I've had 0% desire to do this blog post. It's hard to blog a game you lost especially when you lost the one before and the one after. At least this was a good game. One funny thing...my friend Randy won seats in club. The last time the Flames were in town I was in club for that, too. What a coincidence.


Kiprusoff leads the crew to the ice.



Good baby goalie! Check both ways before your cross. He's actually not that much of a baby. Karlsson is 27 and 6'5''. That's a lot of Swedish goalie.



Glencross stretches.



Kostopoulos looks like he is grimacing.



Jarome zooms around with the puck.



Kipper sees some shots. You can see his trademark flaming skulls on his mask.



You can see that Karlsson has some skulls o his own.



Jarome taking a breather.



Karlsson does his Ondrej Pavelec on opening night impersonation. (not really funny considering what happened later)



Cory Sarich was doing "the lean" right in front of me. Nice flexibility!



Kipper turns away some shots with his glove.



Big photo disappointment. Karlsson does this frog hop thing where he does a deep squat, them pops up. Every picture I have of him he is down. It just looks like he is squatting.



I was hoping to get a picture of Olli making a funny face, which he does frequently. No such luck. This was about it.



I bet he is amazed at the lack of crowd since he plays in Calgary. Oh wait, never mind, he used to play in Florida!



Karlsson gets some net time.



At least I get to see Johnny zooming around blue line from this angle.



Well Randy and I had club seats...my poor husband did not. I made arrangements for him to sit with friends over in the section of one of the users I know. Oh no, he heads up to the top of the 300s.



Tanguay tries to get one past Pavs.



Back in the zone again, a dangerous trend. You can see Sopel being very vocal.



Calgary scores. Booooo!



Nik putting some pressure on Kiprusoff.



Bryan Little got a goal in the game.



Kipper takes a cruise.



Pavs tries to get some of the garbage out of his crease.



More action in front of Pavs.



One of the reason I love Sopes, he plays Wal-Mart Greeter. For each period he stands by the door and gives fist bumps.



Then it was deja vu. For what appeared to be no reason at all, an Atlanta Thrashers player was unconscious on the ice.



This time it was Freddy Meyer who dropped to the ice.



Fortunately, Freddy was able to leave on his own power.


This was a hell of a game and a lot of fun. I'm tired of losing good games though. We've got to turn this around.

I'm sorry to hear that it's hard to find motivation for this team right now, but wanted to let you know how much I enjoy and rely on your pics and commentary to keep up w/ the Thrashers (I'm an out-of-state fan!) I hope the hockey=happiness equation is back for you soon.

Thank you so much anonymous. That really does help! I'm glad you enjoy it and that does motivate me! :)

I appreciate the time you take to take the pictures and post them for us. I am at every game but your pictures are 100% better than any I've ever taken. I check the blog after every game to see what you've captured. Thank you for doing this even when we are not playing so well. Good, bad, I love the Thrashers!
