We're at about the quarter-mark of the 2014-15 Calgary Flames season and your local hockey heroes have amassed a record of 14-8-2, good enough for 30 points and a 9th overall placement as I compile this today.
To say the hockey world is shocked and/or impressed is probably apt, and maybe even an understatement. To fully grasp how well the Flames are doing, particularly in relation to how bad we thought they would be, we turn to the FlamesNation family: myself, Christian Roatis, Byron Bader, Beloch, Justin Azevedo, Kent Wilson and The Book of Loob.

Some minor Flames roster news for your afternoon.

On paper, this game seemed like a tough one. The SAP Center (at HP Pavilion) has historically been a tough place to play. The Flames were coming off a tough 3-2 loss the night before in Anaheim. The Sharks had been off since Saturday, when they lost at home. Likely the visitors would be tired and frustrated and the home side rested and ready to go.
Instead, the Flames went toe-to-toe with the Sharks and really pulled away in the late stages of the second period and much of the third. Instead of fading, the Flames intensified, and won a 2-0 road effort over the Sharks.
The Flames have not yet lost back-to-back games in regulation.

Less than 24 hours after suffering a regulation loss, the Calgary Flames hit the ice once again in a hostile environment to try to ensure they don't suffer back-to-back set-backs.
Tonight's challenge, the 24th contest of this National Hockey League season for the Flames (13-8-2), will come against the San Jose Sharks (10-9-4) in another Pacific Division clash!
It's the latest start of the season, as the puck drops at 8:30pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.
