So you think everything's fine and the Flames are a good team?

Hold your horses, sailor. They were two good wins, but it's gonna take more than that to make this team seem contenders. Both games went to OT, remember.

Anyway, a chance to avenge the 5-2 mauling they received in San Jose tonight.

Milestones

Two points for Marc-Edouard Vlasic would bring 200 up for him. Otherwise it's time to start the countdown on Gaudreau to 100 - Johnny sits on 91 before tonight's game.
