The Heat have had four days to recuperate after their difficult back-to-back-to-back schedule from last weekend. Now they face another B2B series with the Marlies, starting tonight in Abbostford.The Marlies are 3-2-1 in six games so far and have scored as many goals (17) as they have given up. The Heat, on the other hand, have a goal differential +9 and despite a mediocre .500 weekend, remain tied for third in the Western Conference with 10 points.

The Last Gladiators is a documentary about hockey, but it focuses mainly on former NHLer Chris Nilan. The film is honest, funny, realistic and heartbreaking. Nilan talks openly about his career, his drug and alcohol addiction as well as his upbringing with an abusive father. Check your local listings to see where it is playing in your area.
There was an advance screening in Edmonton a few weeks back and after I mediated a Q and A with Nilan and the audience he agreed to do an interview about the movie. He was just as candid in the interview as he was in the movie. I didn't omit any of his responses and the following interview is just a small sample of what you'll see in theatres.

The weekend is almost upon us! And while the outside world may be getting chilly, the arenas of this continent have been that way for quite some time.

Another packed day of KHL action here - 11 games!!! That's more than 10 games. It's science.
Yakupov's looking great, Malkin's looking great, some familiar names, some new ones, and some crazy finishes.
Check it out and enjoy!

Because I have used up my allotment of satire for the year and there remains almost zero actual Flames news to discuss, it's time for another random thoughts post.
- I've never been a Flames season ticket - I was too young when ST's were cheap and plentiful and now as a working adult they are expensive and in short supply.
