After a fairly flat performance Thursday night in a 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders, the Calgary Flames get right back at it toinght, visiting the Ottawa Senators for the only time this season (5:30 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960). That's two consecutive meh performances for the Flames, and the Islanders were able to take advantage of them, winning on the scoresheet and in the scoring chance battle, snapping Calgary's four game win streak in the process.

I stumbled on some worthwhile Flamess material to share this morning before the game tonight
First up, we have a Jay Feaster interview courtesy Timo Seppa of Hockey Prospectus. Timo attended the Flames/Islanders game last night and managed to ask the Flames GM about the team's recent success, as well as Calgary's main challenges and the acquisition of Blake Comeau.

The combined shooting percentage of everyone with whom a player has shared the ice at even-strength is a consequence of several factors, including their combined shooting talent, the average quality of their opponents, the player’s own ability to set up his teammates and, of course, lots of luck.

Calgary's 2-1 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night saw the Flames play a pretty mediocre game and still come away with two points. Calgary decided to play with fire for a second straight game, letting an inferior opponent control the hockey game for far too long, and this time it cost them. The Flames had their four game win streak snapped Thursday thanks to a 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders.
