The first game went well for the Flames as they downed the Canucks by a score of two to one. The second game was not anywhere near as nice. The Canucks took it to the Flames as they defeated Calgary by a score of four to one in a game that featured a fair amount of testiness.

The series is basically renewed as both teams will be looking to take what is now a best-in-five set. The Flames lines will remain the same and Jonas Hiller is still in net. They'll be opposed by Eddie Lack.

The stadium should be plenty loud enough now that the match is back in Calgary. This will be the first time that the Scotiabank Saddledome has hosted a playoff game since the 2009 quarterfinals. The series already has an edge to it with the shenanigans and misconducts that occurred in the last game and one has to expect that will carry over into this game.

With some late breaking news:
