Flames vs Lightning - Tonight @ 5pm - CBC Hockey Night In Canada

The Flames take on the Lightning tonight in Tampa Bay with the game starting at 5:00pm MST.

FLAMES (29-21-8) at LIGHTNING (24-21-11)

Last 10: Calgary 3-5-2; Tampa Bay 6-3-1

Both the Flames and the Lightning are in 8th place in their respective conferences. Call this a battle of the 8's if you will. It should be a good game and we should expect the Flames to come out on top. 

Can Kotalik and Higgins continue to impress? What about Stajan and White?

The Flames won't have David Moss (shoulder), Nigel Dawes (leg) and Craig Conroy (knee) as they are all out with injuries.

Let's get our screaming hats on and start freaking out. It GAME DAY!!!

Our Condolences To The Burke and Reedy Families

We have received some very sad news in the hockey world today. 21 year old Brendan Burke and fellow vehicle occupant, 18 year old Mark Reedy, were tragically killed in a car accident earlier today.

The vehicle that they were driving had slid sideways and struck an oncoming truck. The driver of the truck was not hurt in the accident. They did manage to get Mr. Burke to the hospital, but he later died of his injuries.

Snow and bad roads were the root cause of the accident and as far as we know, drugs and alcohol were not a factor. For more on this story and complete updates, CLICK HERE

On behalf of everyone in the Jambalaya family, we want to send our thoughts and prayers out to the Burke and Reedy families in this troubling time. God bless you folks.
