Just a quick edition of FGD today with New Years festivities kind of getting all in the way. The Calgary Flames play their final game of the season against the Nashville Predators today, hoping to even the season series with them (4 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet 960). The Flames are hoping to snap a two game skid and a three game period of fairly uninspired play.

You can make it eight in a row for the Calgary Flames over their provincial rivals, as the Flames were victorious in round three of the Battle of Alberta, taking a 3-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night. While it was close in the opening 20 minutes, the Flames gradually took this one over and snuffed out their upstart rivals to get above the .500 mark for the first time this season.

Aside from the final five minutes of the hockey game, the Calgary Flames played one of their more controlling games of the season on Thursday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Unfortunately for the Flames, the final five minutes was enough for them to scuttle all the prior positives as Calgary coughed up a pair of goals and ended up falling 4-3 in a shootout at the hands of the Blue Jackets.

Another November night, another November loss. For the first time this season, the Flames have lost three straight games, dropping a 2-0 decision to St. Louis. Give the Blues all the credit they deserve, as they're a very regimented squad getting goaltending from Brian Elliott, and they grinded out the victory. It was a decent outing for Calgary, but in the end, they were unable to cash on their chances and have fallen four games below the .500 mark.

As the immortal Ric Flair says: "to be the man, you've gotta beat the man." Well, in this case, they did at least half of that, knocking off the NHL's top team, the Chicago Blackhawks, 5-2 on Friday night. It was one of, if not the, best efforts of the season for the Flames as they were full marks start to finish. The most important thing is they were rewarded for playing their game start to finish.
