 A day and a half removed from a tough OT loss against the Detroit Red Wings, the Calgary Flames (13-16-6) will face-off against the star-studded Penguins of Pittsburgh (26-10-1) in an early afternoon affair.

The Penguins are Kate Upton hot right now.  They have won six straight games and are 9-1-0 in their last ten games. Their recent run has catapulted them into 3rd place and they are now nipping at the heels of Chicago and Anaheim for 1st place overall. Impressively, they have positioned themselves among the league's best  despite superstars James Neal, Kris Letang and Eugene Malkin all having missed significant time this season.
