Although most clubs would usually prefer the comforts of home, I suspect that the Flames are happy to hit the road for a few days. Wednesday’s third period collapse appears to have a few more members of the fanbase crying “Havoc”, so this evening’s affair in front of the stoic Svens of the North Star State might seem like a blessedly peaceful alternative.

The Flames head back to action this evening against the Wild, after getting a lengthy trip east out of the way and managing to do so without any casualties. Tonight, Calgary hosts a squad that is absolutely hanging on because of their powerplay and goaltending.

I always had the feeling that the dog days of a NHL season were from around Christmas to the trade deadline, but this year, at least for those of us that follow Calgary's fortunes, it seems that they're already in place. Regardless, the round-up returns for another week, full of Grey Cup cheer, or something along those lines. In this installment, the Flames finish a lengthy sojourn with their worst performance of the trip, one of the club's prospects imitates a Flame in entirely the wrong manner, and the first faint rumblings of off-ice change are felt in Western New York.

The Flames have a Black Friday matinee this afternoon in the City of Brotherly Love, at a time where love of any sort for the team has been tough to come by. I can't imagine matters getting any easier today, as Calgary meets a very talented club that's also got the percentages working for them.

After last night's unfortunate turn of events, the Flames have no time to sulk, as they head to Manhattan for a shot at the Rangers this evening. They'll meet a team that is beginning their transition to becoming a bit younger, especially on the blueline.
