Live Gamethread: Calgary Flames Host Montreal Canadiens

The seemingly rock solid Montreal squad was shut out last night by (surprise) the Edmonton Oilers. Will the well rested home team and a hopefully rejuvenated David Jones be able to keep them on their heels?



10 games in and the Calgary Flames are on pace for 90 points, holding down the eighth spot in the conference. Let’s be frank though, 90 points will not get them a ticket to the big dance. Tonight is a good time for them to show that anything is possible. Your starting lineups:
