With how things have gone for the Calgary Flames so far this year, any kind of positive streak is something to be excited about. Heading into tonight, Calgary has points in four straight games, and had it not been for a collapse in the final five minutes on Thursday, they'd have won a season high four straight games. Tonight, their quest to make it five in a row with points is a difficult one, as they visit the Vancouver Canucks (7 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960).

Two days ago, Rhett Warrener reported that veteran Flames defenseman Cory Sarich had requested a trade. While he did talk with Flames general manager Jay Feaster, and while it seems the possibility of a trade was discussed, Sarich wants it clear that he did not demand to be moved.

Well, it certainly didn't start the way the Flames wanted to start Saturday's game in Edmonton, but after falling down 2-0 early on, it was a Calgary dominated affair from there on out. While they didn't lead until late in the contest, Calgary was 100% deserving of a 5-3 win, their seventh consecutive over their provincial rivals. While they have a shootout loss breaking up a win streak, the Flames have points in four straight and have played good hockey over the majority of that span.

(Wanye has instituted a new rule when it comes to BoA's: winner of the last game gets to write the losers game day post. Naturally I readily agreed because it benefited my side of the conflict. So for those Oilers faithful wondering why a scummy Flames fan is penning your GDB, kindly refer all complaints to Mr. Wanye Gretz III esquire)
It's probably not a surprise to most Edmonton fans that none of us down south have taken your club too seriously recently. And by recently, I of course mean for the better part of a decade. Darryl Sutter has become a figure of parody in Calgary since his descent into utter madness and subsequent firing, but his era as Flames coach/GM did feature at least one consistently positive aspect: beating up on the Oil.
