The Calgary Flames won their ninth consecutive game over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night, beating a team they usually beat. Tonight, they look for an eighth straight win over the Edmonton Oilers in round three of this season's Battle of Alberta (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960). Last week, the Flames took a 5-3 win at Rexall Place in rather impressive fashion and can win three in a row for the first time this season with a win tonight.

Thanks to their best run of the season, the Calgary Flames have scaled their way back to .500, taking their 13th win of the season on Thursday night, 3-2 over the Colorado Avalanche. In an odd game overall, the Flames scored a pair of powerplay goals in the third period along with a pretty Olli Jokinen winner, helping them to a fourth win over Colorado this season. Calgary now has wins in five of seven and points in six of those games.

It seems all the Calgary Flames do lately is beat the Colorado Avalanche (or Edmonton Oilers). In the case of the former, the Flames have taken eight consecutive victories over them, sometimes in crushing fashion and sometimes in bizarre fashion. Any fashion will work for tonight, as Calgary plays host to Colorado for the fourth meeting between the teams this season (7 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet 960).

It was a score the Baltimore Ravens would be proud of. A 7-6 hockey win over the Carolina Hurricanes for the Calgary Flames on Tuesday is a little bit of a different story, but it did accomplish one thing: getting the team two points. Calgary now has points in five of their last six games and wins in four of those as they inch back to with a game of the .500 mark.

Calgary's month of December is a busy one with a span of 16 games that really could help put their season on track or do the complete opposite. After suffering a 5-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday night, the Flames have an opportunity to turn this last little stretch into a good one. A win tonight against Carolina could give Calgary points in five of six games, and it's a game the Flames should be expected to win (7 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960).
