Every player has a team they really love playing against, a team they always find success against. For Ray Emery, that team is the Calgary Flames.

Emery has faced the Flames 11 times in his career and has won 8 of those contests, including this afternoon's tilt in Philly. Calgary threw in another valiant effort but are left tasting the bitter taste of defeat. I'm sure spirits aren't all too down though, with the Olympic break now officially in effect and many of the group will be heading off on family vacations for the next couple weeks.

Wake up, throw some breakfast on, brew a fresh cup of Mojo, comfortably establish yourself on the couch and throw on some Calgary Flames hockey. That is a routine I quite enjoy and wish we'd see more of. There's nothing like starting your day with some Flames hockey - especially when they're playing well! Personally, I'd like to see more of these type of starts.

Happy Hockey Day in Canada! Although it may not be so happy at around 8:30 MST when the Flames will have already started playing the Vancouver Canucks, but for now, the mood is jolly and hockey-ey.

The Canucks are reeling, having lost three in a row including a shattering at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks, 9 to 1. Vancouver, however, have been strong at Rogers Arena this year and will also receive a jolt in the lineup tonight with the return of Alex Burrows from a broken jaw. It's really no matter for the Flames though, who are just thankful to be out of the Scotiabank Sattledome, where they've been setting all sorts of records you don't want to set. We'll find out soon enough just how much of a difference being on the road makes for this weary group.

The saying "it's been tough sledding" has been all too true in Calgary over the past few weeks. For one, the National Hockey League team rebuilding in the StampedeCity has been having trouble scoring goals, forget winning games, which can really begin to get frustrating. Also, it's been warmer outside of late which has made the snow heavier and stickier making sledding more tough.
