But hey, there are some lingering positives we can take from this loss. Things we can truly appreciate as the team grows and pushes onward.
But there is also a lot of continued and nagging dilemmas that undermine this team as a whole.

So, not on the Nation Network's expense (though I wish Drance and company would have gotten me a gift), I went down to Phoenix for my birthday. Who wants to spend their birthday in cold ol' Edmonton anyway?
With two hockey games in two days it was the most ideal way to turn 27. The only thing better than that could be if the Flames actually strung together more than two good games consecutively but such is life. Now we live in the darkest timeline with limited glimmers of hope (see: the win over Dallas).

Coming home after a disaster of a road trip, the Flames legitimately more than any time this season needed to show up. With all that's happened this season, the Flames had a four game winning streak at home coming into tonight which is kind of surprising to think about. Circling the Flames all day long was a very convincing theme that revolved around questions like this:
"How bad would the Flames get trounced at home by the league's top team?"
The answer: they took a time machine back to last season, replaced the entire team with last year's, and won the game.

I'm covering for Ari this morning as she was eaten alive by baby puppies.
Lost somewhere between Washington, D.C. and Chicago is whatever allowed the Flames to beat the Capitals the other night. This game wasn't really close to begin with, as Chicago in typical fashion controlled it from almost every possible vantage point.
Though the team did manage to show flickers of life, it was unlikely from the get-go that the Flames really had a chance in this one.

When Thomas Drance brought me on to help develop the community aspect of FlamesNation, contests and engagement were a big topic. We know y'all love to comment, spitting some of the finest taeks on the internet, but we want to see how creative you can get. So we're holding our first contest of the season and we've got a couple of prizes to offer up.
