Dare to Dream

Off to Calgary later today to take in some of the excitement.

Last night's game was what one might expect of a team that had been out-played in Game One. Tampa didn't get to the finals without more than a little ability and pride and it showed in Game Two.

I'm not sure how likely it is that I'll be able to get a ticket to Saturday night's game, but as the Ranger says in a "beer out here" commercial, I'm going to "dare to dream."

On a related note, I saw during last night's HNIC telecast that the same commercial had been edited, since I'd seen it last, to include a call for the Flames to do likewise.

Calgary Flames: Stanley Cup Finalist 2004

Less than an hour until Game Two. The Flames really played well in Game One.

Kipper continues to sparkle in net and Jerome Iginla is one of those players who come along every so often who can single-handedly change the outcome of a game.

Grapes was saying the other night that TB would do well not to rile the Flames' captain and compared him to Cam Neely, another guy who could "take charge" of a game.
