Is anyone shocked that the Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames played to a one goal decision on Friday night? I would doubt it, as these two teams played the same type of game we've seen them play many times before...on this occasion, Rene Bourque's shootout winner would give Calgary a 3-2 extra time win over their Northwest Division rivals, and Henrik Karlsson would pick up his second win in the Flames net.

Yeah, we've already seen the amazingly exciting Minnesota Wild twice this season, and the Calgary Flames hook up with them for the second time in three nights tonight at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul (6 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960). For the Flames, it's a chance to bounce back after their embarassing loss to Vancouver on Wednesday night...and they'll turn to the backup to try and get the job done.

Although most clubs would usually prefer the comforts of home, I suspect that the Flames are happy to hit the road for a few days. Wednesday’s third period collapse appears to have a few more members of the fanbase crying “Havoc”, so this evening’s affair in front of the stoic Svens of the North Star State might seem like a blessedly peaceful alternative.

Darren Dreger has an article up today at TSN saying the Flames ownership is committed to "staying the course" despite the unfortunate position the team currently finds itself in (as well as the resultant public outcry to do something). The comments at the bottom are...predictable.
