We're underway
We're under way here at McMahon.

Calgary started with a powerhouse front line, running out Gary Roberts, Lanny McDonald and Joe Nieuwendyk.

But it was Mike Vernon, in goal, who created the first signature moment of the game. Less than a minute into the game -- his first since he retired -- he made a smart save and helped turn the puck the other way.

Also interesting is that Joel Otto, one of the best two-way centers of his generation, is playing defense in this game.

Also, Martin Gelinas, a former Flame, is playing for Montreal, which has a short bench for this game.

I might have blacked out. I was pretty pumped.
