Less than 24 hours after suffering a regulation loss, the Calgary Flames hit the ice once again in a hostile environment to try to ensure they don't suffer back-to-back set-backs.

Tonight's challenge, the 24th contest of this National Hockey League season for the Flames (13-8-2), will come against the San Jose Sharks (10-9-4) in another Pacific Division clash!

It's the latest start of the season, as the puck drops at 8:30pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

Tonight the Calgary Flames attempted to finally overcome the Disneyland Curse by beating the Anaheim Ducks in the Honda Center.

Despite following their typical game-plan to the tee - spotting their opponent a few goals and then trying to come back in the third period - they did not win in Anaheim. The final score was 3-2.

They came that close. Their next chance will be January 21, the last game prior to the All-Star Break.

The Flames' recent success - or lack thereof - in Anaheim can be simply described with one acronym. LOL. Loss on Loss...or Laugh Out Loud, depending on how annoying you are.

Since January 19th, wait for it, 2004(!!) the Calgary Flames' haven't been able to "put it in the win column" against the Anaheim Ducks in their home rink, and have been accumulating LOL with each visit to the city that isn't Los Angeles but pretty much is but technically isn't (I mean come on, they share a baseball team!).

In fact, the last time the Flames won in Anaheim, the Ducks weren't even known as the Ducks, rather as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Well, even though they haven't been Mighty for some time now, their mastery of the Flames at the pond is unparalleled.

For a while now, every meeting between the Ducks and Flames in Orange County is met with the "Is This The Game Calgary Snaps The Streak?" articles and then followed with the "Nope" articles. This is another one of those lead up articles. We're hoping for a different follow up, though.
