The Calgary Flames return home to the comforts of the Scotiabank Saddledome where they last lost to Montreal on October 30th. That's a 9-0 stretch coming into tonight's tilt with the Winnipeg Jets. Calgary just finished a 4 game road trip at 2-2 with wins against Nahsville and Dallas, while falling to St. Louis and Detroit. Winnipeg took down the Flames in October 3-1 and are looking to take a 2-0 season series lead on the Flames. Calgary has other ideas in mind and would like to get back on the winning track after dropping 2 straight. Both teams have identical records and are in a 3 way tie for 10th place in the West, so this should be an evenly matched contest. Here's how both teams match up.
