The Calgary Flames kicked off their final big road trip of the season with a loss on Sunday afternoon, dropping a 6-3 decision in Ottawa to the hometown Senators. The Flames held a lead for the better part of the second period, but their habit of allowing late-period goals may've come back to bite 'em.

The Calgary Flames are set to begin their last big road trip of the 2013-14 season today in Ottawa with a rather rare Sunday matinee tilt with the Ottawa Senators.

This is the second of two meetings between the Flames and Ottawa this season, the previous being a 4-1 Flames home win just hours after the NHL's trade deadline. Here we are a few weeks later, and the teams have fare a bit differently: Calgary's gone a respectable 7-5-0 since then, while the Sens are a rather uneven 3-4-3. Both clubs are coming off impressive home wins against playoff teams – Calgary over the Rangers and Ottawa over the Blackhawks.

The puck drops at 3pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

I'll be blunt - Buffalo's pretty awful.

The Calgary Flames were hoping to slow the playoff advance of the New York Rangers as they welcomed their Gotham contemporaries to the Saddledome tonight. In the end, the Flames would prevail 4-3 on the backs of Rämö (really good) and Lundqvist (not so good).

There was a lot of early action tonight - pretty sloppy, in fact - but as the game went on the two teams would gain more control of themselves and their play. The neutral zone battle was dominated by the Flames in the first, but it was one of the few areas where the Flames would outplay the Rangers.
