The Eastern Conference-worst Montreal Canadiens might not cause many problems for the Flames the way they've been struggling to score.
Calgary looks to extend its point streak in this series to seven on Tuesday night when it tries to end its longest home losing streak in two years.
First off, Mike Cammalleri will not be facing his former team tonight as we found out yesterday that he'll be unavailable for the game. Add him to Lance Bouwma, Blake Comeau, Mikael Backlund, Blair Jones, and Lee Stempniak as players whom we know won't be in the lineup tonight. Let's also not forget that Chris Butler remains sidelined as well on the back end so the walking...
