Flames' rookie Sean Monahan has been the talk of Flames Town for much of the 2013-14 season. He was selected in the 2013 draft 6th overall by the Flames and made the team immediately out of camp. He did not disappoint in his first few months in the league, putting up 15 points in roughly 20 games. His game has trailed off since then but he's still contributing on a Flames team that doesn't score very much. In fact, he's leading this Flames team in goals with his 14 on the season.

Tonight, the Calgary Flames (16-24-6) continue their mini two-game east coast road trip when they head to Music City U.S.A aka Nashville, Tennessee for a date with the Predators (19-21-7).  The puck drops at 6 pm MT.  Catch it on the Fan960 or Sportsnet West.

After arguably the worst stretch of the Flames' existence, that saw them get shut out 5 out of 7 games, the Flames have been turning the tide on scoresheet terribleness.  The better play started to take shape on Saturday when the Flames put in a pretty good effort against Crosby and the Penguins.  They lost the game but the effort was there and they scored once.  All positives.  The momentum continued into last night's tilt with the Hurricanes.  The Flames played their best road game in about two months in this one.  The Flames skated away with a 2-0 victory.
