Even if the Flames weren't mediocre on the road and lousy at back-to-backs (they are and...they are), the Los Angeles Kings aren't a guaranteed two points anymore. In fact, I consider them a burgeoning heavy-weight that is probably a season or two out from making noise in the league.

...one of these things just plain sucks.
Im going to forgo talking about the Ducks in this pre-game; we saw them just a few games ago and little has changed since then. Watch out for Getzlaf, Perry and Ryan (in that order). Don't worry too much about Selanne at even-strength. etc.
No, this post will be pure navel-gazing.

It's the Blurst of times for the Canadiens and Flames right now. Calgary has just finished losing 4 straight for the first time this season, sullying many of the sky-high expectations they had built over the prior two months.

Both the Ducks and the Flames will be desperate for a win today: the Flames, because a 4 game losing streak would remind them of the late season swoons they experienced under both Keenan and Playfair, while the Ducks are currently enmeshed in the cluster-f that is the Western Conference play-off bubble.

Jarome Iginla has played 4 games against the Hawks this year, managed zero goals, three assists...and a ghastly -9 rating. That's arguably the worst stats line for the captain versus any team in the league.
