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.

Tonight, in the first game of 2014, the Calgary Flames (14-20-6) host the Tampa Bay Lightning (24-12-4) at the Saddledome.  The night will mark the 10th anniversary of the 2004 Cup Final between these two teams, as this will be the only meeting between the teams this year.  Martin St. Louis, the man that broke all of our hearts in double overtime of game six in 2004, is the only player left from either team.
