FGD #26: A Rematch with Arizona (7pm; SNW)

The Calgary Flames (15-8-2) meet up with the Arizona Coyotes (10-12-3) tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

It'll be their second meeting in four days - part of a home and home series between the Flames and the team from Phoenix - though the Coyotes had a stop-over in Edmonton to play the Oilers in-between games. The Coyotes won 5-2 by way of a special teams bonanza (two short-handed goals and a power-play goal) in the second period.

And after yet another successful road trip - the Flames have gone over .500 on every single trek they've taken - the Flames are trying to continue their steady play.

The puck drops at 7pm MT and you can catch the action on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan!
