In a game where this is virtually nothing seperating the two competitors, sometimes all it takes is one, and that's all it took on Sunday night as the Calgary Flames got back on the winning side of things, taking a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues at the 'Dome.  It was as even a hockey game you could ever watch, but a David Moss third period goal was the difference, as Calgary went from eighth to tenth and finally to sixth in the Western Conference Standings.

A week earlier, Calgary was in much the same position. Entering their December 23rd game against the Dallas Stars, the Flames had a 14-18-3 record, good for 14th in the Western Conference.
