Tonight, the Calgary Flames entered the third period in an enviable position.

They were up a goal, at home. Game over, right? Nope. Because the Flames, the NHL's best third period comeback team, were facing the top team in the Pacific...and the NHL's second-best third period comeback team.

After surrendering five goals in the final frame in one of the worst frames of hockey they've played in a while, the Calgary Flames lost their first game all season after leading through 40 minutes, by a 6-3 score.

Here's how it all fell apart at the Saddledome tonight.

FGD #59: Western Night (7pm MT, SN West)

With just 24 games left to go, things continue to get real for the Calgary Flames. Tonight, they finish off their homestand and play their final home game until after the Tim Hortons Brier - until March 11 - as they face the Anaheim Ducks. (Coincidentally, the March 11 game is also against Anaheim...)

The Flames (32-22-4) are coming off a tough overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild in a game where the Flames probably deserved better. Regardless of the loss, the Flames are 7-3-1 in the 11 games since the All-Star Break. They host the Ducks (35-16-7), who have lost five of their last six games and are 4-6-1 since the All-Star Break. The Ducks aren't in any real danger of losing ground, but they need momentum as they head into the playoffs.

Puck drop is at 7pm MT tonight on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan. Oh, and it's Western Night at the Scotiabank Saddledome, y'all!
