Saturday loss. =( [updated]

Remembrance Day.jpg
Flames 3 Rangers 1
[updates: 1. the Drury hit resulted in a 3 game suspension to the Flames' Curtis Glencross. 2. Dubinsky is going to miss 3-6 weeks with a broken bone in his hand.]
The Remembrance Day (see above) game was a nail-biter for almost the entire contest, and the boys had to struggle valiantly without captain Chris Drury (lost in the 1st minute to concussion from a vicious, dirty & unpenalized hit by Curtis Glencross) and Brandon Dubinsky (blocked a shot with his hand/wrist in the early 2nd period). So the top 2 centers out of the game, and maybe out for a lengthy stretch. frowny face.jpeg
Dan Girardi scored the only Ranger goal. But Miikka Kiprusoff was just a nightmare in goal for Calgary, stopping 31 of 32 shots. Meanwhile, Henrik Lundqvist sat out another game with an undisclosed upper leg injury. (groin or thigh)
The boys ran into a couple of old friends on Saturday night; Fredrik Sjostrom and Nigel Dawes. Here's Michael Rozsival exchanging shoves with Nigel:
