Just when this item seems to be getting a little old, more and more information is coming to light about the fateful decision to jump the Calgary Flames and their families to the front of the H1N1 vaccination line up. During a time when thousands of hard-working non-hockey-playing Albertans are waiting in line ups so long that many are expiring of natural causes before they reach the front of the line, the Flames flexed their collective clout and had a special vaccination clinic set up for the private use of the Team and their families.

Memories on the 1994 Stanley Cup Final will be ressurected tonight as the New York Rangers visit the Vancouver Canucks at GM Place tonight. The thoughts of 15 years ago are bittersweet for many Canucks fans. Canucks fans hope the memories of tonight's game are just sweet.

Funny how the Flames escaped what for them has recently been the gruesome month of October with a fairly health 7-4-1 record and yet there are as many concerns and questions about the hockey club as ever.

The Vancouver Canucks escaped from LA with a shoot-out victory last night and head up the 405 to play the Anaheim Ducks in the second half of back-to-back games in Southern California.
The Canucks face a struggling Ducks team, but will have to play much more physically against Anaheim than they did against Los Angeles.
