The Calgary Flames found the back of the net, and found the back of the net often on Friday night, taking a 7-2 win at home over the Chicago Blackhawks.  It was a strong game pretty much from start to finish for the home side, and thanks in part to a three goal night from Jarome Iginla, the Flames snapped a three game losing skid and did it against a pretty good opponent.

It's kind of hard to come up with clever titles for the postgame article...really, tonight's title is exactly what the game was.  Another loss for the Calgary Flames.  This time, it was to the Phoenix Coyotes (again) by a 3-1 score at home.  Overall, Calgary has lost four straight at the 'Dome and three in a row...they now sit 7-10 on the season.

So...with all this talk of Jarome Iginla and the Los Angeles Kings and Brayden Schenn and a total tear down...it may be easy to forget there's a hockey game to play.  Hey, some may like to pretend there isn't a game, with some of the results as of late...but tonight, it's the Flames back at home as they take on the Phoenix Coyotes (7:30 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960).
