Saturday's game between the Flames and Kings at the Scotiabank Saddledome was a lot of fun and gave us a good preview of the type of hockey Calgary might be in for down the stretch.  It was two teams with very little seperating them going shot for shot, and it took seven rounds of a shootout to finish it.  It's on Calgary to duplicate their effort tonight when they take on the Chicago Blackhawks for the third time this year (7:30 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).

Part 1 - Sutter's Genius

Part 2 - Sutter's Fortune

Part 3 - Sutter the Messiah

Part 4 - The Sutter Culture

Thus far I've discussed the nature of Darryl's rise to the top of the organization and enhshrinement as hockey czar without really delving into his management methods.
