The Calgary Flames dropped to 1-3 on the season Saturday night, falling 3-2 at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs to finish off a three game road trip.

The Leafs have yet to lose on the season while Calgary returns home for a six game homestand.

Somewhat depressing fact of the day (via our sister site LeafsNation): the Calgary Flames only have one player that they've drafted in the lineup in David Moss. Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs have two players that the Flames have drafted in Dion Phaneuf and Matthew Lombardi.
This is true even with 20-year old rookie Roman Horak in the line-up: he was drafted by the New York Rangers. Of course Jarome Iginla (drafted by Dallas) was groomed here and Mark Giordano was technically a Flames draft pick seeing as they signed him as a free agent out of junior...still, definitely an area the organization has to improve.

Coming off their first win of the season on Thursday night, the Calgary Flames finish a three game road trip tonight in Toronto, taking on the Maple Leafs for one of two meetings this season (5 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960). The Flames and Leafs will be forever linked to their blockbuster trade from January 2010, a deal that saw Toronto get their new captain Dion Phaneuf.
