Excerpt from Beantown's fan Journal: The Epic Flames Rivalry!

Hey gang! So I don't know if I mentioned this before, but for Christmas 2009 my parents got me this super cool Canucks journal for a gift, and I've been using it ever since to keep a diary of my thoughts on every Canuck Game. And I was thinking, one of my favourite things about being a Canucks fans is all the awesome and tough rivalries we have and how great it is to play against all of our tough, big rivals. Since we just played the Calgary Flames, another Northwest elite team and perhaps our biggest divisional rival of all time, I thought it might be fun to take a stroll down memory lane! Who wants to come with me!? I can only imagine how fun this will be, with all the back-and-forth tough play, there's sure to be plenty of grind-it-out wins and heartbreaking losses, because it's such a big and elite rivalry between two perpetually solid teams! Here it goes...

Nice try guys! Well the Flames managed to "win" in a shootout 3-2! Oh well, those shootouts sure are pesky. But that’s the way things go in tight rivalries! lose games that no one really wins except with Bettman points, right? Canucks are sure to get their share of those too! Can’t wait for the next game of such an awesome rivalry!

Yay everyone! The Canucks beat the Flames 3-2! WHAT A COMEBACK!

Oh wow… so the Canucks record against the Flames has been 10-0-2 since I started my journal, with Calgary yanking their goalie 5 lopsided times in the 10 losses? Crazy, considering it’s such an even, close, tight, tough, bitter rivalry of Northwest division powerhouse elites! Wow!
