The Calgary Flames finished their second big road trip of 2014-15 with a whimper, dropping a 4-1 decision to the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena in Raleigh on Monday night. The loss concludes a five-game road trip that saw the Flames go 3-2-0.

It's a shame, too, because the Flames played a good first period and had a lot of jump, but never seemed to get their legs (or hearts) back into things after they got down by a goal in the second.

FGD #17: Road Trip Finale in Raleigh (5pm MT; Sportsnet West)

Standing tall with a 9-5-2 record and a sterling 7-3-0 road record, the Calgary Flames will complete their second big road trip of the season tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes (4-6-3).

The 'Canes got a whuppin' from the Flames in Calgary last month by a 5-0 score, but since then they have gone 4-2-1. They lost their next two games on their western swing, then have gone undefeated in regulation in games against Arizona, Los Angeles, Columbus (twice) and Washington.

The Flames? Since crushing the Canes, they've gone - hilariously - also 4-2-1. But the Canes needed those wins a lot more than Calgary.

Tonight's game goes at 5pm and can be found on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

This afternoon, the Calgary Flames tried to bounce back from a fairly hefty loss in Tampa Bay on Thursday. And for two periods, they played like they didn't have a care in the world.

And then the third period happened, and the boys in red somehow snatched victory from the jaws of defeat and skated out of Sunrise, Florida with a 6-4 win before a crowd of 9,230 fans.
