As they continue a six game homestand, the Calgary Flames get to work early with an afternoon affair against the Nashville Predators (2 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960).  After a 3-2 overtime loss on Thursday, the Flames have points in both games to open the home stint and take on a Preds team coming off two really poor performances, falling to the Oilers and the Canucks.

It was pretty fitting a game lacking in a ton of high quality chances would finish in overtime, and that's exactly what happened on Thursday night as the New York Rangers topped the Calgary Flames 3-2 in extra time.  All the regulation scoring happened in the first period until the visitors scored in the expiring seconds of the overtime period.  The loss keeps Calgary one game below the .500 mark.

Game 6 - Flames vs. Rags Live Chat

Lots of controversy to go around tonight. Karlsson or Kipper? It probably doesn't matter because predicting which goalie is going to better during a single game is a bit of a fools errand. Especially since Kipper isn't all that great anymore. Im sure if the Flames lose by a couple of goals Sutter will have to explain himself afterwards.

Then there's the return of the prodigal son Tim Erixon. Expect much rejoicing if he messes up or ends the night -2 or worse. Also - the bitching for a number one center might reach a fever pitch if Brad Richards has a good game tonight.

So yeah...lots to chat about.

One of the most tenuous Calgary Flames issues this summer surrounded the team not signing end eventually trading former first round pick Tim Erixon.  He's now a member of the New York Rangers and he'll be in the lineup tonight when the Blueshirts make their only visit to Calgary this season (7:30 pm, TSN and Sportsnet 960).  It's game two of a six game homestand for the Flames, which they started on the right foot Tuesday night.
