Game 11 - Flames vs. Red Wings Live Chat

The Flames have failed the first two big tests the've faced this season in the Penguins and the Canucks. Both opponents handed the Flames their asses without much issue, which of course has been Calgary's weakness for three or four years running now - an inability to match up to the upper echelon clubs.

The Red Wings enter tonight on mini tailspin, but that's not indicative of the quality of the team. They remain amongst the NHL's heavy hitters and are a formidable adversary, particularly in their own barn. Calgary will have to be vastly better relative to their performances against Vancouver and Pittsburgh in order to have a chance this evening.

Despite their record, the Canucks remain one of the best teams in the west, if not in the NHL and represent a real test for the Flames at the tail end of this home stand. Calgary is getting some things done mostly on the back of depth players at ES, but it's a "Canucks" class of team that has proven to be the issue these last few, playoff-less years.

There's no reason to believe that the club will suddenly start trading punches with the big boys, but if the Flames are truly to battle for the post-season this year, they'll have to pull a few out against the best in the league once in a while. Perhaps tonight will be one of those times.

We're one month in and the Flames have failed to set the hockey world aflame (pun intended and preemptively apologized for). Rob sums up Calgary's underlying numbers in the post below, but here are some other thoughts about the club's first four weeks of action kicking around my head heading into November.
