So, apparently the Washington Capitals are a pretty popular team. They bring quite the entourage with them, and I guess for good reason, but the President's Trophy winning team from a year ago is not happy with the start they've got off to. At 6-4, the Caps seem frustrated and ornery...as do their opponent tonight, the 6-4 Calgary Flames (8 pm, CBC and The FAN 960).

After Thursday night's disaster at the 'Dome, I suspect that more than a few fans are eying this evening's match against the Capitals with a bit of dread. That's understandable, given the way that the visitors from the World's Most Important City torched the net last season on their way to the President's Trophy. That noted, Washington hasn't really lit it up in the same manner this season, and it's largely due to the effect of our old friend variance.

What a start to the weekend we've had surrounding the Calgary Flames, with so many different discussion topics it's tough to formulate things on all of them. Friday brang us news about Mark Giordano, Daymond Langkow and the Abbotsford Heat. Throw that in with the impending return of David Moss, and there's a lot buzzing in Flameland.

Well we've heard this before. The top players on the Calgary Flames are not buying into what needs to be done, and it was the main thing harped on by Head Coach Brent Sutter following a 6-5 home loss at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche. It was a game where Calgary held three leads, including a 4-3 cushion heading into the third period.
