The good news in the Game 7 loss to the Sharks was the Flames showed enough character to take the series against a favoured team to the limit, especially when they trailed after five games.
The bad news is they were thrashed when it mattered most.
What happened to the Flames? What were they missing in their lineup to put them over the edge and wins a playoff series? Have your say in our forum.
Move to pull Kipper stinks
I think the Flames will win in 6 and wrap up the series in Calgary.

All that being said, I refuse to make a prediction here, except that this series is easily the most interesting one of the first round.

I feel Orv is off-base on his characterization of Canadians. At least in my experience, I think Canadians are highly regarded. That is true here in the Bay Area.
Last night's game was another big momentum shifter. Does momentum matter game to game in the playoffs? We'll see. I'll be at game 5 and it should be a great one. I think the Sharks now understand that they need to match the Flames' intensity, so I expect their talent level to give them narrow victories from here on out. But, that could just be my bias talking!

The world loves Canada and Canadians. A dirty little secret being Canadian ? Are you a drug addict ? Alcoholic ? Or just brain dead ? You arent born and raised here then so you should shut your mouth.
Canadians are treated with respect all over the world. Americans pretend to be Canadian when travelling abroad because they are finding out the world hates them.
Go back to the USA Orv and dont let the door hit you on your butt on the way out!

Your on drugs dude. Canada is the best country in the world. We dont have big egos, you are confusing us with the USA.
You must be a trasplanted Canadian probably from the USA. You must be a draft dodger that came to Canada to avoid fighting in a war. Dont bash us, we let you come here and live a great life and have a great place to raise a family.
Go back where you came from then Orv if you arent happy living in the greatest country in the world.
