Tonight's gamethread has a couple inspirations. First, the brilliant joke splnwezel put in the game preview: "What do the Calgary Flames and the Titanic have in common? They both look good until they hit the ice!" (Seriously, if you didn't see them, there were a number of Calgary jokes in there.) Second, Titanic is coming out this month in 3D, and yes, I plan on seeing it (in fact, I have a ticket for the 8:15 show tonight, so I'll be leaving during the game). Third, for a team has pathetic as Calgary, I feel the urge to put the sappiest movie possible for the gamethread. Just getting the cheesy, lovey-dovey movies out of the way in order to focus on revenge-filled action movies for the playoffs.
On another quick note, in case you didn't see the preview, there's been a death in the widely-extended SBNHockey family. Peyton Isabella, great-niece to Hockey Wilderness writer Bryan Reynolds, passed away recently at the age of 3 months, and the family is having a hard time with the funeral costs. This is why Sean has decided to donate $50 for every 1000 comments we post here in the gamethread(s) tonight. If you feel compelled to donate, they have a site set up here.

Coconuts go. Let's make me post multiple period threads again.
