It's cool to be hot

Six in a row. On the road. The Playfair demons have clearly been banished. Tonight we even got a great performance out of Kiprusoff, and Huselius added another 2 points. Iginla narrowed the gap with Lecavalier in the chase for the league scoring leader. Good times, good times.

Am I thrilled? While it's clearly exciting to win six, several of them weren't very convincing wins for me and had more to do with the opposition playing poorly and the Flames playing passably well. I'd argue that -- with the exception of the large shots on goal against -- the Flames played one of their better road games tonight.

I still need to see consistently Kipper-esque performances out of Kipper to move me up into the "thrilled" category. Keeping this up for another month would also help in that department. Don't look now, but the Flames are a couple points out of #1 in the division (as I type this, the Flames are 1 point back of Minnie for the division lead, but with 2 more games played). Things are looking up from a rather gloomy start to the year.

On an unrelated note, is the Flames blogger/fans meet at KilkinnyKilkenny (in the suburban depths of Brentwood) on December 27th still on? Bring it on!

PS: Iggy! Iggy! Iggy!
