The Calgary Flames bucked that Windy City monkey off their back last month with a 7-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, snapping an eight game losing streak against them.  Tonight, they take on the Hawks for the first time at the United Center with a familiar face back in the lineup (5 pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960).  Ales Kotalik makes his return to the lineup, his first game of the season.

Is anyone shocked that the Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames played to a one goal decision on Friday night?  I would doubt it, as these two teams played the same type of game we've seen them play many times before...on this occasion, Rene Bourque's shootout winner would give Calgary a 3-2 extra time win over their Northwest Division rivals, and Henrik Karlsson would pick up his second win in the Flames net.
