Game 41: Tampa Bay Lightning @ Calgary Flames

Please note that, moving forward, the process of our coverage here is changing. As with this one, game “previews” will no longer have a much in the way of a write-up. Instead, they will consist of a generic introduction, the same sort of detailed metrics that have been attached all season long to peruse and — starting with Game 42 — league rankings to anchor each team’s performance relative to each other.

In doing so, this will allow a renewed focus on data collection (especially for those like scoring chances and zone entries/exits which have to be tracked manually) that can drive analysis for game recaps as well as specific player and team pieces. Such was the primary thrust of starting this site and it has been neglected in recent weeks as the two writers currently doing this as a hobby with writing (Bolt Prospects and Raw Charge) and personal duties elsewhere found themselves overwhelmed trying to keep up. Something had to give and we decided that something, for now, is the previews. We’d love to bring pregame write-ups back and we hope someday that is possible (probably only if able to add another writer; tweet or e-mail us if interested).

Fresh from beginning its latest road trek with a rousing victory over the Canucks, the Tampa Bay Lightning (24-12-4, 52 PTS) will pay a rare visit tonight upon the much-maligned — this is a club that has, in-season, been re-routed after undergoing a front-office overhaul which was widely-speculated as an eventuality from the moment the ever-blustery Brian Burke was hired — Calgary Flames (14-20-6, 34 PTS), which saw a tight contest against the Flyers become a blowout loss in the final frame on New Year’s Eve.
