A day after a strong performance minus the correct result in Detroit, the Flames were unable to pull things out at Madison Square Garden, falling 2-1 in their only meeting with the New York Rangers.  It was a game filled with hard hitting, chippy play...and one crushing hit delivered by Marc Staal to Calgary's Matt Stajan.  Regardless, the Flames are three games below the .500 mark heading into New Jersey on Wednesday.

And the way things are right now, the perception of this team seems to swing wildly back and forth by the hour.  Nevertheless, the Flames invade Madison Square Garden tonight for their first and only meeting this season with the Rangers (5 pm, Sportsnet West and The Fan 960).
