After last night's unfortunate turn of events, the Flames have no time to sulk, as they head to Manhattan for a shot at the Rangers this evening. They'll meet a team that is beginning their transition to becoming a bit younger, especially on the blueline.

That one stings.  Despite carrying a 3-1 lead heading into the third period, and holding a 4-2 lead into the final half of the third period, the Calgary Flames fell 5-4 to the Detroit Red Wings in overtime, starting off a five game road trip on a sour note.  It was a game with plenty of Calgary positives, and one of their best periods in recent memory...yet the Flames have just one point to take from it.

If there is any truth at all to the notion that team's can "build momentum" off of big victories, then the Flames are going to need all the inertia they can muster form the 7-2 drubbing of the Blackhawks in order to get by the Detroit Red Wings this afternoon.
