After a scrappy win in Los Angeles, the Calgary Flames hit the road once again as they engage in the fourth game of their five-game road trip. Tonight, they visit Arizona to play the Phoenix Coyotes.

This is the first of five meetings between the two new divisional rivals. By sheer coincidence, all three of Calgary's visits to Phoenix will be on the back end of back-to-back games on the road. The two teams played three times last year, with Calgary winning two of three and the home team winning every game.

The Calgary Flames, having lost in 16 previous visits to Anaheim's Honda Center, headed back to the O.C. with visions of victory in their head. However, a sub-par start to the game put the Flames behind the proverbial eight-ball and the visitors left Disneyland without their prize once again.
