"I've had the experience to play there in the playoffs, and any time you go there, even in the regular season, it gets loud in there," said Jakob Silfverberg, who has two goals and three points in this series. "But [Honda Center] gets pretty crazy too, especially [Saturday], so it's going to be a good atmosphere and hopefully a good game too."
 

Head coach Randy Carlyle adds, "It's going to be that much more intense, and I'm sure the aggression will be up there. Their fan base is going to be rabid. It will be a wild night in the Saddledome."

Holzer may be tabbed for Game 3 if Vatanen doesn’t improve. Carlyle said Vatanen will be re-evaluated again Monday morning and again in the warm-up before determining if he is possible. Vatanen did skate right before Game 2 before making himself a late scratch.

...

Forward Ondrej Kase was called back from San Diego (AHL) as the Ducks want an extra forward for the upcoming two road games. Kase was sent to the Gulls and scored a goal for them in their season finale Saturday after playing for the Ducks in Game 1.

It would be REALLY good to sweep these guys and get everyone rested.

 

 

After the home games, I do not see any chance of that, but it sure would be nice. Maybe even get Stoner in a game 4 if we get up 3-0 to see if he could play later on. Get Vatanen 100%. Lindholm too.

Yeah, the sooner a few of those guys can sit in an ice bath the better.

 

And I disagree. I think we can sweep them. I think you will see a different ANA team in CGY. They dont have home ice to fall back on. IF that was in their heads, it wont be in CGY.

We can sweep them. But we have to be way better.

Defenseman Sami Vatanen remains a game-time decision but looked "pretty good" according to head coach Randy Carlyle in his post-skate media session. Vatanen, who missed Game 2 with an upper-body injury, took rushes this morning with Clayton Stoner. Carlyle says he'll talk with the training staff to see where Vatanen is at as the day goes on, but it ultimately comes down to the player's decision.

...

"You have to keep the emotional rollercoaster to a minimum," said Manson. "There are going to be those peaks and valleys. You're going to feel like all the momentum is on their side, but two minutes later it could be on your side. It's just limiting the highs and lows and finding that even keel, and replicating it for 60 minutes."

So Stoner and Vats taking rushes together. Wouldn't mind seeing that pair in tonight. We can still sweep this series as I said we would. No mercy tonight, and focus on good execution.

If they feel Stoner is ready to go, I dont see too much harm in swapping him for Holzer. At this point you have to figure Stoner has had plenty of time to rest and heal, I just question if hes going to be in game shape and up to game speeds.

 

Vatanen is an interesting one. Would you rather have Vatanen at 80% or Theo at 100%?

Vats and Stoner have played together for what, most of 3 years? Given they're healthy enough to play, that's comfort and knowledge that I'd rely on.

If Vats is good to go, I'd put Stoner with him.

 

 

The boys need to keep their heads on straight tonight, liked Manson's comments, he's got it, he's ready.

 

LET'S GO DUCKS!

Dont diagree, its been a damn good pairing int he past. But Vats isnt 100% and Stoner hasnt played since,w hat, November?

 

On a normal day, id be with you. Given the circumstances, I just dont know if I might rather keep the same lineup as last game.

Ducks aren't going to get any calls tonight, but it's starting out really bad.

 

Need to regroup.


To follow up that no call hit on Bieksa from behind with that call on Lindholm is pretty iffy, but the Ducks should have expected this

Now that CGY has a 2 goal lead, they'll play somewhat clean, until the Ducks score, then expect more of the same.

No. They shouldnt. No team should.

 

3 penalties to none when Bieksa was boarded and Lindholm might not have even touched the goalie is BS. The 1st two calls, fine. 

 

Interference wasnt called on Flames. ROughing/Boarding wasnt called on flames. Boarding wasnt called on Flames.


And I take issue with saying that Anaheim was outplayed or any of that BS. One team was awarded 3 straight PP's, one team isnt allowed to touch anyone without a penalty being called.

 

Yeah, no s* they are being 'outplayed'.

 

Maybe if the penalties were 2-0 or 3-1, Id be a bit more forgiving, but this has been some BULLs* officiating. 


Oh, and someone, please, PLEASE take out Chitbagson.

We can debate whether or not they should have to expect it, but they should have prepared, the Flames are going to get away with more when games start like that with the crowd that into it. The refs are just not going to call it, very rarely would they take the crowd out of it that early.

 

I agree with the HNIC guys that the Flames will probably get some calls against them in the second.

 

I have no problem with the Ducks play so far. 2-1 game after the first period I'll take it. Some PP's (hopefully) coming their way, I like their chances.
