    This is the 2nd story I've heard of this year where the Flames to something amazing to their young fans. Kudos to Calgary.

    Agreed.. Really solid play by the Flames on this one. These stories need more attention. They aren't as rare as the publicity they receive. My favorite to date is still Ovie's date with the little girl, which then inspired his 'pick me last' All Star Game plea.

    Love it! And yes the Ovi Sushi date helped push him over the edge for me being one of my favourite players.

    I watched the news clip of her at the game as well... there's a moment where Monahan is standing on the ice in front of her with this huge grin. The look on his face, I think the significance of that moment for her hit him in all the right ways. Looks like he's taking in that moment for everything it was.
