The Calgary Flames will start a three games in four days road trip in California on Friday.
That actually sounds rougher than it is from a travel perspective. They have to play Anaheim on Friday, and then Los Angeles on Friday and Sunday. Still, it's three road games at a time when Calgary is trying to claw their way back into the playoff picture. "A huge road trip for our team," said Chris Butler. "We talk about breaking our season down into little (seven-game) segments, and this segment, with this chunk of road games, could be the most important one for us this season."
