Game 22: Kings @ Flames, 7:30 MST (Sportsnet West / Fan960)

Los Angeles Kings: 8-8-3, 3rd in Pacific, 11th in Western Conference


Calgary Flames: 11-9-1, 3rd in Northwest , 7th in Western Conference

The Flames look bounce back from a 5-2 loss Saturday as they face the LA Kings at the Pengrowth Saddledome tonight.

This game will be the 2nd time these clubs meet this regular season, with the Flames having won the previous encounter 3-2 on November 1st, the last game of a 6 game win streak for the Flames.

Both teams lost their last game.

Keys to tonights game:
  • Shooting Gallery: The Flames had success against Colorado when putting every possible puck on net. The Kings also have the lowest shots against in the league. With a relativley new goalie in net for the Kings, the best bet for the Flames is to get the the shot count up.
  • Play for 60 minutes, not 50: The Flames played pretty well against Detroit on Saturday, but in the last 10 minutes of the game, really started playing sloppily. The Kings do have some skilled players and will make Calgary pay if they start to slack off.
  • Look to Langkow: Daymond Langkow has been sensational against the Kings in most games. Another strong performance by #22 could be the difference.

    The last time the Flames played the Kings, it was the last game of a 6-game win streak. Let's start another one with a win tonight.
