Lost in all the hoopla about how this Flames team has been playing exciting hockey is that they are a basement team in the standings that will probably finish lower in the standings than last year's boring team. On Saturday it sure looked like the same old Flames team that won it's first two road games, got satisfied and mailed in Saturday's game. The Wild don't score a lot of goals but I think they will light the lamp four times tonight.
2.Enter the Cammy Man: Barring an unexpected setback, LW Michael Cammalleri is expected to draw back into the lineup tonight after missing two games with a hip flexor. Still in search of his first goal of the season, Cammalleri has five assists in seven games.
Thank goodness Cammy is back. Now get Glencross off the top line where he tries to be too fancy, and stick him on the wing opposite Stempniak where he'll play more of an in your face north/south game. Mine as well have Street centre that line and put Stajan back with Czechs where he's been successful.
Glad Glencross is off that line - he is awful with those guys, thinking he is some offensive stud and gliding around. Overall, he was a whole lot more rugged when he first got to Calgary than he has been the last couple years.
