There's no question Calgary has missed Robyn Regehr through the first two contests of this seris. And Cory Sarich. And, arguably, the speed of Matthew Lombardi.
But one guy who's not being talked about very much is Mark Giordano. Felled by a wonky shoulder, the club sure could use his blend of speed, passing and tenacity against the Hawks. Chicago's uptempo forecheck and team quickness has been forcing the Flames remaing rear-guards to make sub-optimal decisions and passes, especially in and around the neutral zone. A lot of rushes and break-outs have been stuffed by bouncing pucks and long, waist-high coss-ice lobs that are easily picked off.

It turns out that 20 minutes' worth of effort doesn't cut it in the playoffs. Who knew?

What a great day to be a sports fan. Hockey, basketball, hockey, beer, hockey, baseball, basketball, hockey, beer, UFC and more hockey.
