Game 13: Coyotes @ Flames, 8:00 MT (Sportsnet West / Fan960)

Phoenix Coyotes: 4-5-0, 4th in Pacific, 14th in Western Conference


Calgary Flames: 7-4-1, 2nd in Northwest , 4th in Western Conference

The Flames look to start a new winning streak tonight as they face the Phoenix Coyotes in Calgary.

This game will be the 2nd time these clubs meet this regular season, with the teams heading in opposite directions. The Flames won the previous game in convincing fashion with a score of 4-1, a game where Brandon Prust scored his first goal of the season.

The Flames had their 6 game winning streak snapped Sunday with a 3-2 loss against the Ducks. The Coyotes lost their last game 3-2 against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

According to Rob Kerr, Miikka Kiprusoff looks like he will be the starter for tonight. Also, it appears as though the injury to Regher was very minor, as he was on the ice this morning, but will be a game-time decision.

Keys to tonights game:
  • Win the first period: The Coyotes have not won a game this season when trailing after the first frame. No reason for that to stop tonight.
  • Power up: The Flames Power play is ranked 5th in the league, while the Phoenix PK is ranked 20th. A perfect opportunity to csah in on some man advantages.
  • Kippers night off?: The Flames defence was a bit of sloppy over the weekend, but Kipper bailed them out. With McElhinney possibly in net tonight, the defence needs to play better. However, even if Kipper gets the nod, that's no excuse to play sloppily.

Time to get back to our winning ways!
