The Habs face the Sens tonight. I said they had to win 2 of 3 on Thursday, and they lost to Boston, so this is it. Win today, win tomorrow, or I really think the playoff chase is out of gas. We won’t know for sure until, in my opinion, the end of January, but this team is running on fumes, and a win tonight would help move it forward at least a little bit.
As for Mike Cammalleri...
It was a homecoming on two fronts at the Dome on Saturday night as Mike Cammalleri was hoping to help the Flames push towards a playoff spot, while on the other bench Darryl Sutter has been doing a great job doing just that for the LA Kings. In fact, after the Kings beat the Flames, their record since the former Flames almighty leader took over was an impressive 7-1-4, and even though...
Once upon a time Mike Cammalleri was a 39-goal scorer in the NHL.

In his first 35 games this season he scored just nine goals and added just 13 assists. Before his trade to the Flames, he picked up his pace with 11 points during a 15-game...

Thursday’s Mike Cammalleri/Rene Bourque trade is an interesting deal on many different levels, including from a numbers perspective. Calgary seemed to be the consensus winner of the deal, since the Flames will receive the player who is viewed as more talented. Or is he?

Before losing this weekend, the Calgary Flames were nearly flawless at home for much of the past two months. It's been quite the opposite away from there.
The Flames' chances of avoiding their longest road losing streak in nearly five years don't appear promising as they'll visit the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night.

Into the 1st period, the...
