On February 20th, when I said I wish the LA Kings could play the Calgary Flames every day... I was just kidding.— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) March 11, 2013
Us too, Half, us too.
In what feels like, oh, 48 hours, your Calgary Flames are back at it tonight for the second leg of a back to back against those damned merciless Los Angeles Kings, who are looking to treat the boys in red as lower class serfs, existing only to do the bidding of the kingdom for a second game in a row. The Flames, amid swirling rumours that this game is potentially the straw that breaks the camel's back (the camel being GM Jay Feaster, and his back is a Jarome Iginla trade), look back to get back on track against an obviously very good LA squad to close out their California road trip with at least a little bit of pride intact.

Life isn't great in Flames-land nowadays, but don't fret, as there's a lot of good stuff happening for Calgary's prospects! The playoffs are approaching!

Monday morning breaks with the Flames sitting in 15th in the Western Conference, albeit with a few games in hand on everybody else. The California swing went about as expected, though they lost by perhaps a slightly wider margin than one may have initially guessed. I can't even say the Flames played all that badly given the circumstances and their roster, but that's the state the team is in.

After last night's unfortunate loss to the Ducks (16 straight in Anaheim!), the Flames find themselves having to beat the league's best overall team on the second night of a B2B (in the Kings home barn, on less) in order to stay in the hunt for the final playoff spot. Yeesh.
