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

It's an off-day for your Calgary Flames (12-7-2) after a pretty entertaining but ultimately disappointing loss against the Chicago Blackhawks at the Saddledome.
With a slight lull as the team prepares for the New Jersey Devils tomorrow night, let's check in with the kids in the system, shall we?

Perhaps we should have known it was over when Daniel Carcillo scored.
I think a lot of people, even armed with the knowledge that the Flames were ahead of them in the standings, expected the Blackhawks to walk into Calgary tonight and leave with 2 points. Which, as we know, they did. However, the assumption would have been that they would have skated out onto the Saddledome ice, thoroughly hand Calgary their young, swaddled, asses and move on without breaking a sweat.
Not so. The Flames hung around until the end in this one, and by no means was this cake for the 2013 Cup Champions. If not for a bit of a puck handling gaffe by Jonas Hiller midway through the third, perhaps I could be writing about how your Calgary Flames lost in overtime tonight.
But here we are. The Flames lose 4-3 in regulation, but all in all pass a pretty decent test. Join us for the ride, won't you?
