I always had the feeling that the dog days of a NHL season were from around Christmas to the trade deadline, but this year, at least for those of us that follow Calgary's fortunes, it seems that they're already in place. Regardless, the round-up returns for another week, full of Grey Cup cheer, or something along those lines. In this installment, the Flames finish a lengthy sojourn with their worst performance of the trip, one of the club's prospects imitates a Flame in entirely the wrong manner, and the first faint rumblings of off-ice change are felt in Western New York.

Our Kent Wilson commented on today's FGD by saying the Penguins have "limited depth up front, but Crosby is so good it almost doesn't matter."  How prophetic are those words?  The Calgary Flames finished a five game road trip with a 4-1 loss in Pittsburgh, but it wasn't JUST Crosby on Saturday.  The Penguins were the better team start to finish and once again, a late Calgary push wouldn't be enough against a red hot opponent.

After a really impressive win over the Flyers on Friday morning, the Calgary Flames will try for back to back wins today against the red hot Pittsburgh Penguins (11 am, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960).  The Flames looked solid for 65 minutes against a strong Flyers team, and a similar game in Steel Town will put them in a similar position...with an opportunity to win the hockey game.
