COMING IN

With points in three straight games and six of their last seven, the Flames look to be turning their fortunes since two days of dealing turned over more than a quarter of their roster. But goals are still hard to come by. They've scored three times in their last two games and all have come on the powerplay. They dropped a 2-1 overtime decision in Tampa Saturday night after taking a 1-0 lead into the third period.

Things were looking grand for the Senators, who had won a franchise-record 11 straight games before being blanked 5-0 by the Maple Leafs in Toronto Saturday. Things were a little lighter Sunday as the Sens put on their skills competition at Scotiabank Place.

HEAD TO HEAD

The Flames won both meetings last season by 6-3 scores. This is the first of two games in this year's series and just their fifth meeting since the lockout.

The Flames have claimed five straight victories and own a 12-9-4-0 lifetime record against the Senators.
