PHILLY FLYERS (27-23-3)
CALGARY FLAMES (27-20-8)
7:30 P.M., SPORTSNET/FAN 960
The Flames are feeling much better about themselves after ending their nine-game losing streak with a 6-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers Saturday night. The Flames have at least a point in three straight contests after shootout losses in Dallas and Phoenix. But the win was just their second in 13 games, and they've got a lot to prove before the fans are as confident as the players feel after such a convincing victory.
With a 2-1 win over the New York Islanders Saturday, the Flyers snapped a two-game cold streak to win their fourth contest in a six-game home stand. They've won eight games of 14 but just once on the road all month.
Games between these two teams are rare, and this will be their only meeting this season. The Flames pounded the Flyers 5-1 in Philly last March on trade-deadline day thanks to Olli Jokinen's smashing debut in Flames silks. The Flyers have won two of three battles since the lockout, including their appearance at the Dome in October 2007. The Flames have a 41-52-12-1 record lifetime against the Orange Crush.
