Although the Flames have made a habit of scratching expensive defensemen this year, recently re-sisgned Matt Stajan has found himself in the stands for the last two contests. With the Flames winning the most recent game versus the Blue Jackets, it wouldn't surprise me if Stajan finds himself munching popcorn again on Thursday.
In fact, an extended winning streak during what might be the softest portion of the Flames schedule this year could potentially make what was previously the clubs de facto "#1 center" a regular observer. Hardly an ideal situation.

Yes, the Calgary Flames let a two goal slip on Monday night, but they were able to pull out two points at home. Thanks to a Jarome Iginla overtime winner, the Flames were 3-2 winners over the Columbus Blue Jackets to give them points in back to back games. The Flames have moved out of the Western Conference basement and get two days off before their next game on Thursday.

The Calgary Flames welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight, and it starts off three straight at home for the team (7 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960). It's a real test for the Flames, as this three game stint at the 'Dome features teams Calgary "should beat"; however, that doesn't really matter if they don't beat them. So it starts tonight against Columbus.
