Yeah, you were expecting hockey weren't ya? Well, we have diverse tastes here at FN

The Devils are in town so buckle up guys, we are in for an old fashioned 1-2-2 showdown. I swear, the Devils are a time-capsule of a team. The players may change, the Niedermayers come and go, but this team is still the '94 Devils. It's eerie.

The Flames have an excellent opportunity to go 4-1 on this homestand, finishing the five game stretch tonight against the New Jersey Devils. The visitors are fresh from a 2-0 win-by-submission of our hapless provincial rivals and enter this game with a record of 9-9-2 (of course they are .500). 

There are quite a few interesting storylines tonight with the season debut of Corban Knight, the return of Mike Cammalleri, and the fact that the Devils lineup is guaranteed to make you say "huh. so that's where he ended up!" Read all about it after the jump

I wanted to find some appropriate music for Craig Anderson playing the puck, I have settled on this.

The Flames came alive in a five minute stretch to pull the Flames in front of the Senators. Oh, and Giordano was clipped with a stick in the first period and had to get four stitches on his eyelid. Did you hear me? HIS EYELID. Lordy, he is tough and good at hockey. 

The Flames beat the Senators 4-2 tonight in a wild game in which every single player was hit in the face with a stick. Come read all about it after the jump!

Oh well, That streak was fun. 

In what was a pretty entertaining game, the Flames simply ran out of magic against a far-superior Lightning team. The Lightning beat the Flames 5-2 though for the first two periods, the Flames were able to keep things relatively close. 

The wheels fell off in a nightmareish third period for the Flames who committed too many turnovers, allowed too many breakaways, and benched too many Sven Baertschis.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!? 

Aside from that incontinence-inducing save, I don't think this game will be used in many goaltending clinics in the near future that's for sure. There were some weird goals tonight in a game where the Flames beat the Caps 4-3 in OT

The Flames won a game that I had thought they had lost at least on two different occasions thanks to an overtime goal from Sean Monahan. The Flames continue to win when people least expect them to and are now FOUR GAMES ABOVE .500 ARE YOU SERIOUS?! 

Come see how the Flames managed this after the jump!

FGD: Breaking the Habitants

Who says that I can't post this video tonight? and every night? and sob? WHEN WILL WE BE BACK IN THE PLAYOFFS I HATE THIS.

The Flames host the Habs tonight which means that those going to the game tonight are obligated to be astounded and annoyed by the amount of Canadiens jerseys you see in the crowd. It happens every single time (though it's not just the Habs that elicit this kind of reaction from people, most original six teams are like this but especially the Leafs and Habs). They will come out of the woodwork for this one, prepare yourself and don't act surprised.

Both teams are coming off losses where they didn't exactly bring their best games so it should be a very interesting game tonight at the dome. Lineups and Deryk Engelland highlight reel after the jump!
