The data collection for the NHL's new fancy stat motion has been impressive and is getting more detailed and helpful by the day. There was always one thing missing for me ... advanced stats, or any stats at all, on line combinations. Matt Pfeffer changed this through his website www.progressivehockey.com. The site includes many of the pertinent stats of today (Corsi, Fenwick, WOWY, Usage, etc.) but it is also the first website that I've come across that has advanced stats on forward line combinations and d-pairings.

'Twas a bit lighter schedule for the prospects tonight. The Oshawa Generals and Charlottetown Islanders were off tonight, so no OHL or QMJHL results. One prospect returned from injury, while another missed a game due to a new one.

After a win in Edmonton on Thursday, the Calgary Flames hit the road in earnest on Saturday night when they visited the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center.
The road hit back.
The Flames dropped a rather one-sided game by a 4-1 score. The Blues didn't give the Flames much, and took advantage of their chances. Given the fact that the home side got the lead 48 seconds into the game, on the very first shot of the game, the outcome was never in doubt and the Blues never really seemed too impressed or concerned with the visitors from Calgary.

Welcome to your favourite Scorch fanblog for tonight's preview of the Flames and St. Louis Blues!
The Flames are coming off their requisite thrashing of the Oilers on Thursday and are in St. Louis tonight for the Blues home opener that precious few in Missouri will give a flying crap about as both the Royals and Cardinals play this evening in the MLB championship series'.
The Flames are on the second game of a brutal six-game road trip to start their season and will be in tough tonight against a Blues team that dropped their season opener on Thursday. Thanks to a most predictable injury and a flu, the Flames will debut a new winger tonight, find out who it is (there's a big picture of him) after the jump!
