The tone of the Nation comments as of late has been a whole lot more positive, and why not? The Flames are playing their best hockey of the season by far, and they're making things interesting for their fans, riding a five game win streak. Tonight, they return to where it all started: Atlanta, Georgia for their only meeting with the Thrashers this season (5 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).

Well folks, I had a very detailed, rather lengthy discussion of the Thrashers drawn up this morning. A post I lost due to some idiocy on my end and the vagueries of this blogging platform. As a result, I'm going to re-do it all in bullet-points to spare my sanity.

Style points aren't counted in hockey, and for just the third time this season, the Calgary Flames won a hockey game when trailing after 40 minutes, taking a 3-2 shootout win over the Nashville Predators. Calgary trailed 1-0 and 2-1 in this game, and for the seventh time this season, it took a shootout for Calgary to get the win, but at this point that's not important...you can make it five straight wins and a little closer to that all important playoff spot.
