Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
A 4-4-2 record is .500 based on the league’s math, and considering the expectations that most everybody in the hockey world — at least those who are outside the organization — pegged them to be swimming with the fishes from the drop of the puck, it’s a heady accomplishment for the squad.
However, the Flames returned home with only one victory from a very difficult five-game road trip and are already four points out of a playoff spot and sixth in the tough seven-team Pacific Division.
Things won’t be any easier at the Saddledome in the coming days. They start a homestand Saturday against a Washington Capitals team that appears to be rounding into form and led by goal-per-game sniper Alex Ovechkin before the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings arrive in the Stampede City.
So … half-full?
