Both the Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames are riding season-high four game winless streaks heading into action tonight as the two teams meet for the third time this season (7 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960). The Flames lost all four games on their road trip and now start a three game, pre-Christmas stretch against opponents with impressive point totals. Funny enough, even though the Wild have the most points of that trio, they may be the most beatable opponent.

It'll be another year without a win in Chicago, as Calgary's United Center woes stretch to four seasons thanks to a 4-2 loss at the hands of the Blackhawks on Sunday night. It serves as a fourth straight loss for the Flames in a game that was never really close. Chicago controlled things from the very start, and even with a couple third period goals, a fifth straight Blackhawks win was never in doubt.

While it may not be the same as Anaheim's Honda Center, Chicago's United Center just isn't a friendly place for the Calgary Flames. They've lost seven straight games at the Madhouse on Madison, even if they've started to have a little more success against the Blackhawks overall. The last time these two teams met, Calgary took an impressive 5-2 win at the Saddledome.

Other than the first ten minutes of this hockey game, Friday's contest between the Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers didn't see a whole lot of daylight for either side. While Florida ran things early on, the Flames reeled things and had a lead into the latter stages of the third period. In the end, this one went to a shootout with the Panthers scoring on their last two shots to come away with a 3-2 win.

Those Florida Panthers used to resemble something much closer to a house cat and have for about, oh, the last ten years. But after a wild spending spree on July 1st, GM Dale Tallon has turned this team into a group that can compete and put up some victories, something they've done so far this season. Tonight, after a 5-4 overtime loss in Tampa the day previous, the Calgary Flames tangle with Florida for the only time this season (5:30 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960).
