Curtis Glencross has been on fire since returing to the Flames' lineup, with 10 points in nine games. One cannot help but wonder where Calgary would be had he not missed 13 games.
Since returning to the Flames lineup 10 games ago, Glencross has seven goals and three assists.

His hit against Taylor Hall knocked the young star out of the game, and he's been diagnosed with a concussion. Not good news. In fairness to Sarich, there was nothing dirty about his hit on...
