The battle of Alberta is no more

Just posting to show my disappointment that the Calgary Flames were defeated by the Anaheim ducks in a shutout in game seven of the first round.
They did good, just not in game 7. Fuck.

But what really sucks is that Calgary would play Edmonton in the 2nd round (as Edmonton won their series against Detroit). For those of you that don't know, Calgary and Edmonton are only about 300 km apart (a short distance for Canadian cities... in some places you drive 300 km and you have to learn a new language). Calgary and Edmonton have constant rivalries over various sporting events. A playoff hockey match would have been just awesome.

Oh well. At least I live in Edmonton now so I can chear for them when they win ;)

(I always wondered what would happen when I pressed that little trash can beside my post!)

I'm equally as bummed about Montreal being ousted. It would have been a similar situation here too with Ottawa playing Montreal in the next round. Plus Montreal is only two hours away! (I have no idea what this equals in kms, but I can assure you it's well worth the ride)
