I hope you all have taken time today to think about the last time the Flames played the Kings. Make that your happy place. Take a deeeep breath, close your eyes, and remember Jonathan Quick pushing Martinez out of the way en route to the dressing room. Exhale...

That was satisfying wasn't it?

The Kings visit the dome tonight and are looking to avenge that painful home loss before Christmas. The Flames and Kings are separated by only two points in the Pacific division standings which happen to be the amount of points given to the winner of tonight's game. How convenient!

See the lineups and game story after the jump!

Lest we get too negative around these here parts about the Edmonton Oilers, let's just lay something out here.

The Edmonton Oilers were the better team than the Calgary Flames tonight.

Alas, there aren't any points for the "better team," and the Flames were the team that scored more goals, en route to a 4-1 home victory over the aforementioned hockey team from Edmonton.

The Oilers generally out-played and out-shot the Flames. But they were also key contributors to three of the four goals against themselves, which made all the difference in the world.
