There is the old saying that states "no news is good news", right? That was not the case for the Flames fan base this week, when they finally got the news on what many fans had speculated on and even complained had not happened yet. In addition to that, the fans were pretty much unanimous in agreement and saying, "Finally...", when the core received the media's version of 40 lashes in the town's square that left a bitter taste in the mouths of the players... publically at least.

The second iteration of the NHLNumbers Podcast features the regular crew from episode one (myself, Jon Willis and Justin Azevedo) as well as Gabriel Desjardins of behindthenet.ca and Arctic Ice Hockey fame. Gabe is one of the best minds in the world and pioneer when it comes to advanced hockey analysis so we were thrilled he was able to appear for the whole show.

The Calgary Flames had some decent chances on Tuesday night at home to the Ottawa Senators, but alas, were unable to cash in while running into their old nemesis Craig Anderson in the process. In the end, the Flames fell 3-1 at the hands of the Sens and fell back to two games below .500 in the process. There were some strong elements on the night, but that likely doesn't up the spirits of Flames fans right now when mistakes hurt the team the way they did.
