Rural Alberta Advantage: Matchsticks and Gasoline
Some of the faces may have changed for both teams, but it'll still be a similar matchup in styles as it has been the past few years. Calgary's d-men, while sturdy and physical, are not the fleetest of foot, and that can be exploited. And while he certainly has the potential of doing backflips in the crease and channeling his 2004 self, the more pucks that are put on Kipper, the better. If the Hawks from the last two games show up for a full 60 tonight, it should be a happy birthday for Kaner. That's always a big "if" though, isn't it? Let's go Hawks.
