When your team has lost six of its last seven and have only won three games on the season, it’s tough to find positives and remain optimistic.

Fortunately for Heat fans, Freddie Hamilton has provided a small glimmer of hope for a team waist deep in a bog of frustration and losing. He’s a glimmer of hope of what fans would like to see the Stockton Heat become when and if they figure out how to play a complete game – and that’s just what Hamilton provides, a complete game.

I'm covering for Ari this morning as she was eaten alive by baby puppies.

Lost somewhere between Washington, D.C. and Chicago is whatever allowed the Flames to beat the Capitals the other night. This game wasn't really close to begin with, as Chicago in typical fashion controlled it from almost every possible vantage point. 

Though the team did manage to show flickers of life, it was unlikely from the get-go that the Flames really had a chance in this one.

So, how's everyone doing?

Tonight, the Calgary Flames polished off their four-game road trip tonight in Chicago. Despite playing a Blackhawks team that suited up last night, in a different city, and played a tough, emotional game against St. Louis, the Flames lost 4-1. Aside from a brief stretch of the early second period when they had a 1-0 lead, the Flames weren't ever really in this game.

With the loss, the Flames head home with a 6-12-1 record through 19 games.

FGD #19: Visiting The Champs

Well, it's come down to this: the Calgary Flames are capping off their four-game, eight-day sojourn through the United States tonight with a meeting with the reigning and defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Chicago Blackhawks.

Some of the most memorable road hockey moments of the past few seasons for the Calgary Flames have happened in Chicago. Who could forget Reto Berra's miraculous first game in the NHL in Chicago back in November 2013? Or Jonas Hiller's 49-save first Flames win in Chicago last October? The Blackhawks (9-7-1) are a damn good team, but they played last night against St. Louis and may be tired. It's something the Flames (6-11-1) will need to try to take advantage of if they want to return home with a .500 record on this trip.
