*Technical difficulties in getting game highlights, so in lieu...*
Calgary Flames: 6 -- Boyd (2), Bourque [GWG], Phaneuf, Iginla (2)
Edmonton Oilers: 1 -- Gagner
For 28 years, neither the Calgary Flames, nor the Edmonton Oilers have managed to sweep the season series... until now! The Flames managed a six game season sweep over the "debacle of monumental proportions" in copper & blue, after a nine game winless skid of their own.

Surely there must be a way for both of the rag-tag Alberta clubs' losing streaks to continue beyond tonight's tilt at One of the The Many Houses Frankie Musil Built.
The Elias Sports Bureau tells us this is already the first National Hockey League contest in more than 22 years to feature a matchup of clubs on winless skids of at least nine games and, goshdarn it, why can't the fun carry on into February?

It is January 28th, 2010 and Alberta is rebounding nicely from a financially tough 2009, but if the first month of the New Year is any indication, then 2010 will be much harder on the hearts of hockey fans in Canada’s richest province than 2009 was on their wallets.

Calgary Flames: 3 -- Dion Phaneuf, Jarome Iginla, Olli Jokinen
Dallas Stars: 4 -- Mike Modano, James Neal, Brad Richards
S/O Winner -- Loui Eriksson
The Calgary Flames had a 3-2 lead 5:53 in to the third period, when Rene Bourque took what could only be called a "bone-headed" penalty for a broken stick. All he had to do was drop his stick and there's no call. Jay Bouwmeester took a boarding penalty thirty-five seconds later and the Stars had a two-man advantage, leading to a Brad Richards goal to tie the game. From there, the Flames and Stars went to a shoot-out and what do you know... the Flames lose making them winless in eight.
