Flames vs. Kings GameThread

The Kings make their second trip to Calgary in ten days. They won the last round, but will they win this one? (… Probably, if we're being honest with ourselves.)



Obligatory reminder that if the Flames win just one more game against the Kings this season, they’ll win the season series. Yeah. Think about that one for a while, Kings.

The Flames lineup is almost entirely children again tonight, because everybody is injured, although Curtis Glencross is expected to be back this week. Same with Kevin Westgarth, which… … Well, the season’s almost over, so we’ll see what happens with contracts then.

(But seriously, haven't you enjoyed watching the kids?!)

The Kings will be playing without Jordan Nolan tonight, because he got suspended. Which is good I guess, because seriously, the Flames are injured enough already, and also half of the lineup are children.

Joni Ortio vs. Martin Jones in net tonight! Two of the best AHL goalies this season. Mini Kipper vs. former Calgary Hitman.

Corban Knight is the only remaining call up who has yet to score an NHL point (that group includes Ortio, who already has an assist, which is amazing in and of itself) so maybe we’ll see that tonight.

Go Flames! Or go Kings if you want in on the tank! Whatever! Go hockey!
