Editor's Note: Today is Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the United States. So we're taking a brief intermission from outright hockey talk and engaging in a look back with our pal Rex.
This past summer marked
the centennial anniversary of the beginning of the Great War, what
would later come to be called World War I. Coverage of the various
observances and speeches to mark that date dominated much of the news
cycle of August, when it wasn’t focusing on outbreaks of Ebola in West
Africa; conflict, annexation and military brinkmanship in the
Ukraine; and the rise of an ideological pseudo-state in central Iraq
and Eastern Syria.

The Calgary Flames finished their second big road trip of 2014-15 with a whimper, dropping a 4-1 decision to the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena in Raleigh on Monday night. The loss concludes a five-game road trip that saw the Flames go 3-2-0.
It's a shame, too, because the Flames played a good first period and had a lot of jump, but never seemed to get their legs (or hearts) back into things after they got down by a goal in the second.

The 'Canes got a whuppin' from the Flames in Calgary last month by a 5-0 score, but since then they have gone 4-2-1. They lost their next two games on their western swing, then have gone undefeated in regulation in games against Arizona, Los Angeles, Columbus (twice) and Washington.
The Flames? Since crushing the Canes, they've gone - hilariously - also 4-2-1. But the Canes needed those wins a lot more than Calgary.
Tonight's game goes at 5pm and can be found on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

Because there are still a few players the team hasn't seen up on the big club this year, the Flames have reportedly recalled forward Max Reinhart from the Adirondack Flames of the American Hockey League.
The AHL's transactions website had the big scoop earlier today.
