 Finding a disgruntled Flames fan in Calgary is hard to do -- unless you were turned away from the Saddledome for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup final.

 "We were here when the national anthem was playing, and they locked the doors on us," said a disappointed Pete Jackson, who was forced to wait outside the 'Dome with his wife, Sherri, on Thursday night.

  While only 9,000 or so showed up at the home of the Flames to watch Tuesday's Stanley Cup-opener in Tampa Bay, security staff were overwhelmed with almost 20,000 fans who wanted in for Game 2 on Thursday.

 The fans who did get to watch the game broadcast from Tampa via the 'Dome's giant Jumbotron either showed up hours early or managed to push past security.

 To prevent such a scene from happening again, Flames spokesman Peter Hanlon said staff is working on a plan for Game 5 this Thursday, when the series returns to Tampa Bay.

 "We have some ideas that we'll announce on Monday," he said without divulging details.
