As far as mid-January games go, this is as good as it gets tonight folks. The Flames have been a pretty sorry group to watch recently (recent wins aside) generating some of the lowest shot totals in the league on a nightly basis. Good thing the Kings aren’t exactly good at scoring goals themselves, although who knows if that will change now that Darryl is behind the bench.
Even with Cammalleri’s return, Calgary is still a pretty thin squad up front lacking David Moss, Matt Stajan and Alex Tanguay. The Kings are technically the better team on paper, although the fall of Mike Richards from heavy hitter to ES liability evens things up a tad. On top of everything else, it will be interesting to watch the erstwhile Flyer tonight to see if he looks as bad as his underlying numbers suggest.
On another note, I am going to be the Kwarter (www.kwarter.com) "game master" for the contest tonight, so most of my time and comments will be concentrated on twitter. It’s a sports/social media app I’ve been asked to demo. If you have an ipad/iphone maybe give it a try.
