Things haven’t gone so well for the Flames as of late. They’re off to a slow start to the season and recently lost starting goal Miikka Kiprusoff to an MCL injury. Their defense has been porous and their offense has sputtered when two of their top centers were injured.
In other words, if Dallas wants to break their back-to-back games curse there’s no better time than tonight.
Calgary comes into this game pretty well rested (only 10 games played so far and only one back-to-back to start off their season) but injuries have decimated their top players.
Alex Tanguay leads the team with nine points and is tied with four other players with five assists. Lee Stempniak leads the Flames with five goals and Jarome Iginla is off to a slow start ...

CRASS IN CALGARY
During an interview between periods, former Calgary Flames player and current Dallas Stars player Eric Nystrom was mooned by the Calgary Flames mascot. Harvey the Hound obviously felt that this was the proper way to welcome Nystrom back to Calgary, and I’m sure Nystrom thought it was funny. Unfortunately for Nystrom, his homecoming wasn’t that great, as the Flames beat the...
Brenden Morrow is a confident guy, but when you're a captain in the National Hockey League like No. 10 has been for the Dallas Stars since he took over the "C" from franchise icon Mike Modano a number of years ago, confidence has to be one of your strong points.
A great example of Morrow's confidence came during the Stars' highly-abbreviated training camp....
Flames forward Jarome Iginla will undoubtedly be the subject of trade rumors this season, but should potential buyers beware?
Maybe they should, according to one of Iginla’s former teammates.
Retired ex-teammate Rhett Warrener on his radio show questioned whether or not Iginla still has that flame burning as he plays for the lowly Flames.
“His greatest asset was his shot but...
Jaromir Jagr may be forty years old, but he is still as good as most 22 year-olds when out on that big slab of ice. On Wednesday night Jagr’s Dallas Stars lost 7-4 to the Calgary Flames, but in my book everyone was a winner thanks to six die-hard Jagr fans. Check out the group of six fans who put on a fitting tribute to Jaromir by each donning a former Jagr team...
Miikka Kiprusoff has a slight grade two MCL sprain. He is projected to be out for another two weeks.

Back again for another bag of pucks where the Stars haven't lost since the night before the Super Bowl. If that continues, the Stars are going to be really good this year.
Seriously, there is no denying how much better the Stars look to the naked eye since they have had Derek Roy and Jamie Benn both present in their lineups on the same night. Now, that has only been 3 games...
