I predicted a Flames win in 7. Well, for that to happen, there needs to be drastic improvement from, oh, about 18 Flames right now...
Kiprusoff is the only reason either of the games appeared close. This reminds me of that series between Winnipeg and Detroit in 1996 when Nik Khabibulin almost stole the series for the Jets. But as in that series, Detroit has simply been way too dominant to lose.
Iginla is trying, but that seems to be the problem; he's trying too much, trying to do everything himself. Every time I see him out there there is two or three Wings on him, and no one else is supporting the puck.
The Wings are a very good team, but there's no way the Flames should be this bad. If they were gonna play like this they should have just let the Avalanche have their spot.
I said I smelled an upset. Now I'm just upset at the smell of the Flames' effort.
