In a game where the Calgary Flames were hoping to snap a season long five game losing skid, they got a special gift along with accomplishing their goal. Jarome Iginla scored goal number 500 at 8:33 of the third period in a game where all the scoring came in the final 20 minutes; all in all, a fairly decent effort from a depleted Calgary lineup on a special night at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

With a five game losing skid punctuated by a 9-0 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday night, the Calgary Flames look to pick themselves up tonight against the Minnesota Wild (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960). It's the first Flames home game since December 22nd and it gives the team an opportunity to erase what has been a really ugly stretch. With injuries and callups, it'll be a new look Calgary team tonight.

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).

Depending on how you look at it, the Calgary Flames are either 2-2-1 or 1-2-1 on their season-long, World Junior road string. The former record includes the win over Vancouver before Christmas while the latter reflects the actual roadtrip portion of the stretch. Nonetheless, Calgary needs wins over Washington and Boston to guarantee finishing above .500 looking at either a record, a tall task that starts tonight in DC (5 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet 960).
