I was teaching friends about hockey in Australia for game 7 of the finals near a decade ago. It's been a rough decade.

My goal for the Flames this year was to play well, to play entertaining hockey, but lose at the end so that we can get a good pick in this year's outstanding draft.  Beating the Hawks feels good, but we need the boys to lose a few more to stay in the basement where we want to be.

I don't think you have much to worry about.

Jesus, the Blackhawks just suck in OT this year.

Well, we need Edmonton to quit sucking so much.  And it's going to be a tough race downwards to catch Buffalo as well.  Losing is harder than it looks, apparently.

Meanwhile, Tim Thomas got lit up like an emergency bunker during an air raid last night.

''I think I might've enjoyed myself watching the State of the Union more,'' said Thomas, not a big fan of President Barack Obama, who delivered the speech at the same time as the Bruins were beating the Panthers for the sixth straight time. ''No, probably not.''

The Olympics can not come soon enough for the Hawks, even with them having 10 players going.

What a douche whistle.

I'm glad our boys smoked him like cheap weed.

Sean Monahan seems like the real deal. Good for the Flames

67s and world juniors would have benefitted from having him on the squad.

Yup. *checks standings* Just as I thought, they have the highest number of OT losses of any team this season. WTF?

I think the Cup hangover is setting in. That, and I suppose every team wants to knock off the defending champions and kicks it up a notch.

They've been pretty abysmal in the third period this year, allowing a lot of teams to come back and force overtime. The shootout has really been killing them - thank god there's not SO in the playoffs.

Considering they've looked pretty damn terrible for stretches, it's pretty impressive they're still near the top of the league in points. If they get everything clicking they'll be more dangerous than last year.

Timmy and Curt Schilling should start a club.

It has happened before.

Something, I'll note wryly, the Oilers haven't managed to do yet this season.  But they get to try again against not very awful Sharks tonight.

I'm not holding my breath.

Yay. Pretty decent game to watch, one of the best in recent months for sure.

I wish.  13 OT losses this year.

Scrivens?  That was insane, buddy.
