There were two major sporting events carried on Sportsnet on Tuesday evening. On the main Sportsnet feed, we had Game 6 of the World Series between Kansas City and San Francisco, with the Royals fighting (at home) for their survival. That game - high stakes - was epicly one-sided, and the Royals spanked the visitors rather handily to force a Game 7 tomorrow night.

On Sportsnet's dedicated Flames feed - a ways down the dial - we got an absolute barn-burner of a hockey game between old rivals, as the Montreal Canadiens and the Calgary Flames played 65 minutes of fantastic hockey. After regulation and overtime solved nothing, the Flames ended up losing arguably their best game of the season, a 2-1 shootout decision against Montreal.

Oh, and Joe Colborne left the game with an upper body injury in the second period and Matt Stajan left with an apparent knee injury in the third period.

Who says that I can't post this video tonight? and every night? and sob? WHEN WILL WE BE BACK IN THE PLAYOFFS I HATE THIS.

The Flames host the Habs tonight which means that those going to the game tonight are obligated to be astounded and annoyed by the amount of Canadiens jerseys you see in the crowd. It happens every single time (though it's not just the Habs that elicit this kind of reaction from people, most original six teams are like this but especially the Leafs and Habs). They will come out of the woodwork for this one, prepare yourself and don't act surprised.

Both teams are coming off losses where they didn't exactly bring their best games so it should be a very interesting game tonight at the dome. Lineups and Deryk Engelland highlight reel after the jump!

Spookily, they've both played the same number of minutes - 313.

After last night's 3-1 loss to the Washington Capitals, the Calgary Flames have completed 10 games. It's a nice even number, and for some reason the Flames have now played more than anybody else in the league save for the Boston Bruins.

Is it possible for the schedule makers to dislike both teams? Perhaps. But in another weird twist, both teams have won 5 of their 10 games. Spooky.
