October is in the books and now, it's time to begin the second month of the regular season. And to close out a season series, because that's how we roll.

The Calgary Flames (6-4-2) close out their season series with the Montreal Canadiens (8-2-1) tonight, in the teams' second meeting in a week. I mean, Montreal played Calgary on Tuesday, flew to play Vancouver on Thursday (they lost 3-2 in overtime) and then flew home. Calgary played on Friday and then flew to Montreal. Both teams are rested, but Montreal is really well-rested.

Anyhoo, Calgary's seeking sweet revenge for losing to Montreal 2-1 in a shootout on Tuesday in a fantastic game. Now Calgary gets a rematch, albeit without a lot of their key roster plays.

The puck drops at 5pm MT on City TV as part of Hometown Hockey - if you're in Central Alberta, everything's happening in Red Deer today. Check it out!

Post Game: The Kids Are Alright

October 31 2014 11:25PM


So...uh, let's be real Flames fans. The Flames are suffering from a few injuries. Backlund, Colborne, Stajan, MayRay, all hurting, all out of the lineup. So naturally, there was a pressing need for some warm bodies to step in during their absence, and the kids that were brought into the lineup paid immediate dividends.

Brian McGrattan was also there.

So while (spoiler alert) things ended unfavourably for Michael Ferland in his NHL debut, he was quite good in the beginning, and superpal youngsters Johnny Gaudreau and Markus Granlund were electrifying. The result: a perhaps surprising hard fought win over a better than you realize Nashville Predators.
