Can Kiprusoff Do It?

In the year of Marty Brodeur, can Miikka Kiprusoff steal away one of Brodeur's many, many records? Last night, Kiprusoff notched his NHL leading 43rd win of the season, just 5 wins behind the record Marty set last season, 48. Will he do it? Can he do it? Well let's take a look.

Let's take a look at the screen grab shall we? 7 games remain.

Kipper needs to go 5-2 to tie, 6-1 to win, with only 2 games against current playoff teams (of course, that is subject to change) remaining. However, the Flames themselves are just 4-6 in their last ten games, with notable wins over Dallas, Minnesota, and Detroit, but tough losses to Toronto, Atlanta, and St. Louis.

Here's the Flame's records this season against their remaining opponents.

San Jose: 2-1
Dallas: 1-2
Minnesota: 5-0
Los Angeles: 3-0
Vancouver: 2-1-2
Edmonton: 2-2

There you have it, so I ask you, will Kipper get the record? Has Calgary's late season swoon doomed the feat or will Olli, Iggy, Cammy and Co. rise to the occasion? Polllllllllllllllllllll.

Must be quite satisfying to know that nearly half your readers like turtles, but lack an opinion on this matter.

If I didn't think it was a possibility that more people would like turtles than Kipper breaking that record, I wouldn't have included it.

But seriously, a) I didn't think the "story" of Kipper's chances was getting enough, if any, air time. and b) if you find this site funny, you're already probably just like us, and would rather see I like Turtles win. Damn Kids.
