That was the total opposite of pretty, as the Calgary Flames were able to pull one of their behind and eventually skate to a 5-4 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Alex Tanguay scored the winner on a gorgeous roof shot to seal a game where Calgary held a three goal lead late in the second period.

The fact that the Flames take on the Oilers tonight is exciting. The fact that 33.3% of Calgary's opposition to this point have been the Oilers makes it significantly less exciting. Nonetheless, here they are...for the third time this season, the Calgary Flames take on the Chosen Ones, and for the second time at the Scotiabank Saddledome (7 pm, Sportsnet West, The FAN 960).

Is there a better way to start a five game home stand than with an absolutely dominant performance over one of the NHL's elite regular season teams? That's exactly what happened Sunday night as the Flames blew away the San Jose Sharks by a 4-0 score, a game that was over after twenty minutes, and a game that gives Calgary a 5-3 record on the season.

The Calgary Flames open up a five game home stand tonight against a pretty darn tough opponent, welcoming the San Jose Sharks to the Scotiabank Saddledome (6pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). Calgary is coming off their best offensive display of the young season, a 6-2 win Friday on the road in Columbus.

After a 4-2 loss Thursday night in Detroit, the Calgary Flames bounced back with a 6-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night, getting their record back up above .500. It gives Henrik Karlsson his first NHL win, and finishes a three game road trip on a winning note. And Rene Bourque scored late in the third period to finish off his third career hat trick.
