The Calgary Flames open up a five game home stand tonight against a pretty darn tough opponent, welcoming the San Jose Sharks to the Scotiabank Saddledome (6pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). Calgary is coming off their best offensive display of the young season, a 6-2 win Friday on the road in Columbus.

The Flames get a look at one of the conference finalists this evening as the Sharks make their first appearance of the season in Calgary. As with Detroit a few nights ago, it's a team that spent its summer seeming to gain ground on the conference by running in place.

Scoring Chances for NHL Game Number 20093

After a 4-2 loss Thursday night in Detroit, the Calgary Flames bounced back with a 6-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night, getting their record back up above .500. It gives Henrik Karlsson his first NHL win, and finishes a three game road trip on a winning note. And Rene Bourque scored late in the third period to finish off his third career hat trick.

Ryan is out of commission today, so the game thread snark will have to come from me.
Yesterday did a lot to undermine both the fans and the coaches belief in the top end of the roster: Iginla to some degree, but Jokinen mostly. Why there was faith there in the first place is probably truer mystery, given the manner in which the previous Jokinen experiment failed so spectacularly. And althogh we're just six games into the new year, it's safe to say the theorized "Alex Tanguay can feed the two snipers!!1!" fix...ain't.
