It's always good to see a solid effort rewarded with a victory, and that's exactly what we saw on Thursday night in Montreal as the Calgary Flames earned their first 'W' of the season, 4-1 over the Canadiens. After a strong opening frame, the Flames did a nice job making life difficult on the Habs for the final 40 minutes, not allowing the goal for the final 58 odd minutes of the hockey game.

Two of the Flames most interesting games came against the Canadiens last year: first was an OT loss which featured a four goal comeback by Calgary after stumbling through the first period. The second was the Heritage Classic, where Rene Bourque played his best game of the season and Calgary basically ran over Montreal.
With the club falling flat through the first two, here's hoping whatever magic animated them in the second part of game one and all of game two described above appears again tonight.

The launch of a new hockey season also means the launch of a new fantasy hockey season. For those who like something a little more interactive than hockey pools, Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey is a popular and ever-growing option.

The Calgary Flames roll into Montreal for one of two meetings with the Canadiens this season, and after two lackluster defeats, the Flames hope to get on the winning side for the first time (5:30 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet 960). Calgary started their three game road trip with a 5-2 loss in St. Louis on Monday, one of the worst outings we've seen from the Flames in a while.
