It's the first of back-to-backs for the Flames with Tomorrow's game against Comeau and Co. in Pittsburgh. Man, that's gonna be such a great game, I can't wait to see all those stars play against the Flames. Wow, I wonder if the Flames will be able to skate with them (I'm pretty sure 50% of of d corps cannot btw). Yeah, Pittsburgh is sure gonna be a fun one. 

Wait, who are they playing tonight,,,? Buffalo?! Oh no. 

As the Rt. Hon. Ackbar so presciently observed. This is indeed a trap.

1. Some good news

So in the last several days, I had a chance to see five of Calgary's six NCAA prospects live and in person, which was a nice treat. I took in a pair of Boston University games this past weekend, and got an eyeful of Brandon Hickey, and then on Tuesday had a chance to see Providence College (Mark Jankowski, Jon Gillies, John Gilmour) take on Colgate (Tim Harrison). Would that Michigan State (Matt DeBlouw) had been in town, but I guess we'll have to settle.

You'll recall that last week I talked about the progression so far this season for Jankowski and Gillies, and what I saw in Tuesday's game really continued both those trends for me.

We're roughly a third of the way through the 2014-15 schedule, which means that we're inching closer and closer to the end of Bob Hartley's original deal with the Calgary Flames.

Given his success this season, he's bound to get an extension. Right? I'm still of the mindset that he will get another deal, but I'm wondering what the hold-up is. But I think I've figured it out.

We've got good news and bad news for you, gang.

The Calgary Flames didn't get shut out. Nope, they scored a goal despite being down 2-0 after two periods. Unfortunately, they couldn't continue their miraculous run of comebacks and now have finally lost back-to-back games in regulation. They began their road trip with a 4-1 set-back at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

They now have a 17-10-2 record through 29 games, finally cracking double-digits in regulation losses.

Here's how it happened.
