It's kind of hard to come up with clever titles for the postgame article...really, tonight's title is exactly what the game was.  Another loss for the Calgary Flames.  This time, it was to the Phoenix Coyotes (again) by a 3-1 score at home.  Overall, Calgary has lost four straight at the 'Dome and three in a row...they now sit 7-10 on the season.

According to twitter reports, Sutter and White have been dealt to Carolina for Anton Babchuk and Tom Kostopolous.

Like White, Babchuk is an offensive minded rearguard who can sometimes have adventures in his own end. Kostopolous is an established NHLer, albeit a rather limited one. He adds to the log-jam of 3rd and 4th liners on the Flames bottm-end.

I don't know how this effects the team on the ice (if at all), but the best news is the Flames save about $1M in cap space.

More detailed analysis later.
