We talked about Wednesday's game between Calgary and Vancouver being a real opportunity for the Flames to be honest with themselves. And after watching a 3-1 win for the Canucks, it's pretty clear how honest the Flames need to be. You can't knock the Flames effort necessarily but this was a Vancouver team toying with their opponent and coasting to a far-too-easy win.

Well, after that 7-2 preseason beating the Flames took to the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary gets set to take on the 'Nucks for the first time this season at Rogers Arena in Van City (8 pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). Oh. That was a regular season game...okay then. So it's the second meeting between the teams this season.

For Flames fans, this season has been terrible for two distinct reasons: one of them is obvious while the other is the fact that the Vancouver Canucks are currently the best team in the Western Conference. If not the league. On top of all that, Ryan Kesler is the main reason for their dominance.
