B Of A Put On Hold

from the Edmonton Journal,
Roll up the Red Mile and keep your shirts on, Calgarians. Pack away those memories of 1980s provincial hockey dominance, Edmontonians. The hoped-for Battle of Alberta fizzled before a single cheap shot was tossed -- on or off the ice. Strangely, the Flames went with a whimper, not the kind of bang the hard-hitting, here-we-come team is noted for. "From our point of view, we're better than we played tonight. That's a tough way to end the season in front of our fans. It wasn't near good enough," said Jarome Iginla, the Flames' Edmonton-born-and-bred captain, who acknowledged that playing the Oilers would have been something. "You don't want to look ahead, but you read the paper like everyone else and you know who you have the opportunity to play. "It's disappointing for us to lose out, and disappointing for our fans. They wanted (the Flames) to play Edmonton more than anybody and we wanted to do that for them."
