Well, that's a whole lot better. After Calgary's 4-0 loss on the road in Edmonton, the Flames looked a whole lot better Sunday in their home opener, a 3-1 win over the LA Kings. Curtis Glencross scored goal #1 on the season, shorthanded to boot, and Calgary rode a strong performance from Miikka Kiprusoff in net en route to the win.

So, after a game that everyone wants to forget on Thursday night in Edmonton, the Calgary Flames open their home schedule tonight at the newly minted Scotiabank Saddledome. It's the first of four meetings between the Flames and the Los Angeles Kings this season (6 pm, Rogers Sportsnet West, The FAN 960).
