The Calgary Flames finish up their 5 game road trip with a stop in the land of cowboys and steer. Calgary is 1-3 on their current 5 game road trip and look to beat Dallas for the 3rd time this season. Neither team is currently tearing it up with the Flames having lost  5 of their last 8 and Dallas losing 6 of their last 8. The Flames have played extremely well against Dallas this season and a win tonight would sweep the season series from the power house Stars. Micheal Ferland is still out for the Flames with an upper body injury, but Karri Ramo will get the start again in the pipes after a rough outing against the Carolina Hurricanes. Here's how the teams match-up:

The Flames are coming off a Sunday evening shellacking by the Carolina Hurricanes. Calgary had it's doors blown off by the score of 5-2. The score doesn't really indicated how bad the Flames played. Karri Ramo was yanked after giving up 3 goals on 19 shots and his relief wasn't much better. Hiller let 2 sneak past him on 17 shots. Here's the hightlights:

Dallas is playing their worst hockey of the season so far. The month of January has been miserable for them and Saturday night was no exception. The 2nd place Stars dropped a 3-1 decision to the Colorado Avalanche. Here's the highlights:
