Game outlook: Let's sum up the long lovefest of a press conference between Darryl Sutter and the Calgary media today:

Reporters: How much of a soap opera is this!? OMG OMG!

Darryl: Well maybe YOU think it's an episode of All My Sutters, but you're not getting any juicy quotes from me.

Reporters: Why didn't you have a press conference before you left?

Darryl: I guess I did miss out on one last opportunity to tell you to go **** yourselves.

I'm sure both brothers want to win this one badly, but things are patched up, so leave 'em be. Anyway, wanting to win badly every night is their job.

The Flames are, for some reason, a dynamite possession team at home and a very poor one on the road. We'll have to see if the Kings can keep up their pattern of getting more high-quality shots here tonight.
