Due to a very, very long locker room session and a long wait to hear from the Head Coach of the Calgary Flames, I'll be unable to put a full post up following Calgary's 7-2 debacle of a loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals.  I'll put one up later, but I figured discussion needs to start now, especially when the night goes like that.

After Thursday night's disaster at the 'Dome, I suspect that more than a few fans are eying this evening's match against the Capitals with a bit of dread. That's understandable, given the way that the visitors from the World's Most Important City torched the net last season on their way to the President's Trophy. That noted, Washington hasn't really lit it up in the same manner this season, and it's largely due to the effect of our old friend variance.

What a start to the weekend we've had surrounding the Calgary Flames, with so many different discussion topics it's tough to formulate things on all of them.  Friday brang us news about Mark Giordano, Daymond Langkow and the Abbotsford Heat.  Throw that in with the impending return of David Moss, and there's a lot buzzing in Flameland.
