|The Enemies' Lair|
The Calgary Flames return home after Thursday's three to two win in overtime against the Montreal Canadians, a game which might have been their best yet. A tired team traveling to a different province with an undrafted free agent in net taking on a rested team with a Hart winning goalie and winning is incredibly impressive and they did it without two of their top six forwards in possession. They'll square off tonight against their second biggest rivals in the Vancouver Canucks.
The two teams have similar special teams woes - neither is very good in that aspect. The Flames have a huge possession advantage, but the Canucks have been riding high on P.D.O. with some of the best goaltending in the league. The two are tied in points.
Puck drop will be at 8:05 P.M. or whenever the broadcast gets to it. It will be aired on Hockey Night in Canada.
