The Calgary Flames, fresh off a thrilling overtime win over the Oilers on New Year's Eve, kick off the 2015 calendar year with a game tonight against the New York Islanders!
The Flames (21-15-3) have won four in a row! The Islanders (25-11-1) have only won two in a row, but they're generally hotter of late and they are presently battling it out with the Pittsburgh Penguins for top spot in the Metropolitan Division! It should be another stiff test for the Flames, particularly given that the Islanders have a skilled, speedy team that are expected to contend for the East crown this year.
The puck drops at 7pm MT and you can catch the action on Sportsnet One and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

1. A worst-case scenario
Kent posed a serious question on Twitter the other day, and it really got me thinking: "Say the Flames can't re-sign Mark Giordano next year."
This was something I honestly hadn't even considered to be a possibility. They recently named the guy captain, and by all accounts he loves Calgary, loves his teammates, etc. The team is also going to throw a ton of cash at him.
