The Calgary Flames have scored just four regulation goals in their last four games, yet they've won a pair of those games and have five of a possible eight points.  It's not what you'd call a sustainable brand of hockey, but it's worked to this point, and they picked up another win Thursday night by taking a 2-1 shootout win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Continuing a really tough stretch, the Calgary Flames did most of what they could for success against a pretty good opponent, but in the end, the Flames kicked off a three game road trip falling 2-1 in a shootout at the hands of the San Jose Sharks.  Miikka Kiprusoff was outstanding along the way, as Calgary wasn't able to hold a one goal lead heading into the final frame.

In a season full of bad performances, the Calgary Flames sunk to their lowest depths Thursday night, finishing their seven game stretch away from home with an embarrassing 9-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.  The debacle of monumental proportions started just 74 seconds in and didn't end until Daniel Paille scored Boston's ninth of the night shorthanded at 8:43 of the third period.  You can make it five straight losses for Calgary after this one.

To this point, the Calgary Flames sit 2-3-1 on their season-long seven game absence from the Scotiabank Saddledome, with their latest setback coming Tuesday night at the hands of the Washington Capitals.  We all knew the trip was going to finish with a bang, seeing the Flames take on the defending Stanley Cup champions.  I think many were hoping the Flames wouldn't need a win over the Boston Bruins just to salvage a .500 trip (5 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960).

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.
