It's kind of refreshing to see the Calgary Flames win a hockey game where they were the better team and deserved to win it. That was exactly the case on Monday night when the Flames took a 5-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres, good for Calgary's second straight win after a three game losing skid.

You guys don't get to see as much Eastern Conference hockey as I do, and understandably so. For this reason, please keep in mind that what you are about to see tonight may be shockingly bad.

We've heard the three words "stay the course" plenty of times from Calgary Flames Head Coach Brent Sutter over the last two months or so. As the Flames get set for the Buffalo Sabres tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome (7 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960), those three words remain the ones to live by for the embattled team.

A question that has come up a few times is whether big players tend to have an advantage when taking faceoffs. There is a certain logic to the idea that they do: after all, bigger, stronger players should be able to outmuscle their smaller counterparts in the faceoff circle.
The data, however, suggests something else entirely: that there is no advantage to being big when it comes to taking face-offs.
