With three minutes left, everyone had an idea where the game was going. The Flames were down by a pair. The Devils were using their structured neutral zone play to negate Flames rushes.
The second straight regulation loss was looming.
But much like the logical devil on your shoulder has a counterpart, the Calgary Flames have built into their followers the belief that their club can battle back from any obstacle.
Down two goals with less than three minutes left? They pulled the goalie and scored twice, then won in a shootout against the New Jersey Devils. The final score was 5-4.
Consult your cardiologist at your discretion.

Yeah, you were expecting hockey weren't ya? Well, we have diverse tastes here at FN
The Devils are in town so buckle up guys, we are in for an old fashioned 1-2-2 showdown. I swear, the Devils are a time-capsule of a team. The players may change, the Niedermayers come and go, but this team is still the '94 Devils. It's eerie.
The Flames have an excellent opportunity to go 4-1 on this homestand, finishing the five game stretch tonight against the New Jersey Devils. The visitors are fresh from a 2-0 win-by-submission of our hapless provincial rivals and enter this game with a record of 9-9-2 (of course they are .500).
There are quite a few interesting storylines tonight with the season debut of Corban Knight, the return of Mike Cammalleri, and the fact that the Devils lineup is guaranteed to make you say "huh. so that's where he ended up!" Read all about it after the jump
