As a lot of us expected, it was a tight and hard fought hockey game Monday night at the 'Dome, and on this night, it was the Calgary Flames coming out on top with a 3-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. The term "it could have gone either way" really did apply on this night, but the Flames did more than enough to earn the two points in a physical, chippy, mean hockey game.

Saturday's game between the Flames and Kings at the Scotiabank Saddledome was a lot of fun and gave us a good preview of the type of hockey Calgary might be in for down the stretch. It was two teams with very little seperating them going shot for shot, and it took seven rounds of a shootout to finish it. It's on Calgary to duplicate their effort tonight when they take on the Chicago Blackhawks for the third time this year (7:30 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).

In the first meeting of the year between these two squads, the Flames were able to flip the script a bit and handed the Hawks one of their worst losses of the season with a 7-2 beat down. Chicago evened things up in December with a 4-2 victory, even though they were missing a few key pieces, including Patrick Kane who left the game early with an ankle sprain.

The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.

We've hit the final two months, and the NHL season has become a bit more interesting, with tight standings and injury news seemingly having almost every team on edge. In this week's look at matters around the league, the Flames return home for yet another crucial stretch, an improbable comeback story is a go in Denver and the Steel City suffers losses in more ways than one or two.
