17 goals against in three games isn't sitting well with the Calgary Flames.  So, the team has made a few changes in advance of Wednesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 pm, TSN and The FAN 960), the second meeting between the teams this year.  David Moss makes his Flames debut, with a number of shuffles to the lines.

Due to a very, very long locker room session and a long wait to hear from the Head Coach of the Calgary Flames, I'll be unable to put a full post up following Calgary's 7-2 debacle of a loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals.  I'll put one up later, but I figured discussion needs to start now, especially when the night goes like that.

So, apparently the Washington Capitals are a pretty popular team.  They bring quite the entourage with them, and I guess for good reason, but the President's Trophy winning team from a year ago is not happy with the start they've got off to.  At 6-4, the Caps seem frustrated and ornery...as do their opponent tonight, the 6-4 Calgary Flames (8 pm, CBC and The FAN 960).

What a start to the weekend we've had surrounding the Calgary Flames, with so many different discussion topics it's tough to formulate things on all of them.  Friday brang us news about Mark Giordano, Daymond Langkow and the Abbotsford Heat.  Throw that in with the impending return of David Moss, and there's a lot buzzing in Flameland.

Well we've heard this before.  The top players on the Calgary Flames are not buying into what needs to be done, and it was the main thing harped on by Head Coach Brent Sutter following a 6-5 home loss at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche.  It was a game where Calgary held three leads, including a 4-3 cushion heading into the third period.
