Just go ahead and let that image sink into your slowly mushed out brainholes.
Do you guys remember the Calgary Flames?!?!?! I know, I know, I tried too, but it's February 27th and the Olympics are over and we have to get through this together.
The good news is, your Flames are back in action tonight against the Los Angeles Kings (of Los Angeles), and that means taking a 2-0 advantage in this season's series up against a team that was as cold as the temperature in Calgary before the Olympic break and a team that is sure to be as cold as the temperature in Calgary on Sunday when we were all obviously outside waiting to get into the bars at 4:30 in the morning like the good hockey lovin' Canadian drunks we all are.
So strap in, Citizens. The road to the June Entry Draft resumes today, and all the Kings horses and all the Kings men....suck.

List of things you want in a hockey game:
- Back and Forth Action
- 4 goals from Eric Nystrom (2007 fans only)
- Flames Win
We got it all and more tonight, Citizens. I don't even know how to begin talking about this one, it was just a crazy night.
But I'm going to try anyway. I'm going to try and breakdown a game where the Flames won 5-4 in a shootout on a night where ERIC NYSTROM scored 4 goals.
Good luck to me.

Your Calgary Flames had been mired in a bit of a record breaking slump as late, having not won a match in regulation inside the "friendly confines" of the Scotiabank Saddledome since the Mesozic Era.
It's been a long stretch of pretty dismal hockey here in Cowtown, and it's been 7 games since the faithful has seen the team skate off the ice with 2 points on the board, truly a franchise record we're all super proud of having been able to witness.
Tonight looked like it may have been another tough task, another storm to weather as the Phoenix Coyotes, THE Phoenix Coyotes who embarrassed the Flames 6-0 in front of nobody in Arizona a couple weeks back, ambled into town looking to push the Flames around.
WOULD THEY DO IT?
Read on past the jump to find out!
(Spoiler alert: no. The Flames won 3-2)

Carter Hutton was actually just okay, I just really wanted to lead with that headline.
Coming off a great game last night against Carolina where Karri Ramo was crazy unreal good, the Flames looked to take that momentum and convert it into something we haven't seen from this team quite some time: a winning streak.
A 2 game winning streak is as meager as it gets, but we'll take what we can get, will we not, Citizens? (We will)
The Nashville Predators had a thing or two or four to say about that though, and ultimately they stood in the way of your Calgary Flames just enough tonight to dash our hopes and dreams forever except for the one where they draft Same Reinhart.
Read the let's hope really well written review of the Flames 4-2 loss after the jump!

Your Calgary Flames return home tonight, fresh off a sad, tiny road trip where, well okay that Colorado game was great, but goal scoring, as I'm sure you've noticed, continues to be down. After falling 6-0 to the Coyotes in the hockey metropolis that is the great state of Arizona, the Flames have now been shutout 4 times in the past 6 games and scored only 5 goals in that same span.
Needless to say, that is a pressing concern.
And as that old saying about how things get worse before they get better, well brother, things are about to get worse before they get better. The Flames welcome the St. Louis Blues to the Scotiabank Saddledome tonight, and if we're all lucky and send a prayer to all our respective deities (mine's German Titov), we mayhaps see a Flames goal or two tonight.
Maybe. We'll see.
