Tonight's Flames game against Minnesota was simply a continuation of the type of play that led to Sunday's overtime win in Chicago - for the first, oh, 47.5 minutes.
Things came off the rails after that, though, and the end result was an ugly 5-1 loss to a very good Minnesota team.

After opening their road trip with a hard-fought and gutsy win in Chicago against the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Calgary Flames (6-6-2) head north to visit a former divisional rival, the Minnesota Wild (8-4-3) tonight at the Xcel Energy Center. The puck drops at 6pm MT on Sportsnet West, Fan960 and all over the Twitters.
This will be the 75th meeting between the two teams, the first 74 of which took place when both teams were part of the since-disbanded Northwest Division. The Flames have a 41-20-13 edge all-time and went 2-1-2 in five games with the Wild last season.

You always hear about how size is an asset in the game. But do players with size actually have demonstrably better careers than their counterparts?
With the help of reader Byron Bader (who compiled the raw numbers and provided some analysis), we're going to take a look and see if that's the case or not.

We're into November now, gang. The NHL's into the second month of its schedule, most of the minor league teams have played a couple weeks and conference play has begun for college teams. Things are getting real now.

Alright folks...Budweiser sent me three of these here Red Light helmets and I'm going to give them away to FlamesNation readers. All you have to do is get an envelope, write out a blank check to me, put it in the envelope...
Actually, it's simpler (and freer) than that. Go to our facebook page and "like" FlamesNation and the associated Redlight Helmet update OR retweet this article with the hastag #BudFlamesnation. I will pick three winners at random over the course of the day. Naturally, you improve your chances of winning by doing both.
