Post Game: The Kids Are Alright

October 31 2014 11:25PM


So...uh, let's be real Flames fans. The Flames are suffering from a few injuries. Backlund, Colborne, Stajan, MayRay, all hurting, all out of the lineup. So naturally, there was a pressing need for some warm bodies to step in during their absence, and the kids that were brought into the lineup paid immediate dividends.

Brian McGrattan was also there.

It's Halloween and the Calgary Flames hit the ice for their sixth home game and an encounter they hope will be anything but scary. On their Road Trip of Doom (on which they went 4-2-0), the locals managed to beat Nashville - a good team - on Nashville's home ice via a great 60-minute effort and some timely stops from their goaltender.

Tonight, they hope to do the same against a Predators club (6-1-2) that's been playing extremely well of late and has just a single regulation loss. And is probably still made about one of the few blemishes on their record being from the boys in red.

Puck drops at 7pm MT (as per tradition on weekdays) and is on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.
