Flames put the heat on Flyers, who lose in Calgary


3-1 Calgary would be your final score.

Elliott kicked out his right pad for a nice toe save to turn aside a point-blank shot by Wayne Simmonds late in the two-man advantage before making a glove grab to stop a shot by Cousins as time expired in Monahan's penalty. "This is a game our goalie won us".

Calgary got a big bounce-back win after an ugly outing Monday, when they lost 5-0 to Arizona in their return from a five-day bye week. Although the Los Angeles Kings, one point back, hold three games in hand. The Flyers squandered an opportunity to pull even with Toronto for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Kansas Senate shoots down Democratic income-tax plan
Senate Republican leaders were pushing a budget-balancing plan last week that included a $128 million education funding cut. The Democrats' tax plan would have brought in more than $1.2 billion over the next two fiscal years.

"The guys are getting a little angry at each other when we're not scoring and not setting it up", Cousins said of the power-play woes, "but [the Flames] were doing a good job of killing".

The trip will resume Thursday in Edmonton against the upstart Oilers, then end Sunday night in Vancouver. We have to make it harder for him, have to get more traffic. I thought their goalie played well, but that's been the excuse the last 10, 15 games.

During the first period, Chiasson used his stick to spear into Cousins' stomach while there was a stoppage in play, resulting in the Flames forward being given a five-minute major and a game misconduct, meaning he was ejected from the game.

Love seeks second opinion on knee injury
Love is averaging 20.0 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists for the Cavaliers (37-16), who have won five of their last six. The rumors will continue to spread, but Kevin Love is a Cleveland Cavalier and knee surgery isn't going to change that.

Just 1:30 after the opening faceoff, Cousins' first goal in 10 games put the Flyers ahead, 1-0.

"That's one pivotal point of the game where obviously we could have pushed the game back our direction", said Flyers coach Dave Hakstol. However, the Flames got lucky as the Flyers were unable to take advantage of the penalty and their extra two men on the ice for the five-minute power play. "We didn't win enough puck battles".

With 13 minutes, 24 seconds left in the third period, Michal Neuvirth kept the Flyers' deficit at 2-1 when he stopped Mikael Backlund on a two-on-one chance. Calgary adjusted its second defence pairing putting Brodie with Deryk Engelland. The Flames signed D Matt Bartkowski to a professional tryout contract on Wednesday.

Ferdinand & Gerrard hit out at Messi's 'sloppy' display
A brace from Angel Di Maria helped put Paris in a comfortable position for the return leg on March 8. And in terms of keeping hold of Verratti, it seems a run in the Champions League could hold the key.

The Flyers outshot the Flames 15-8 in the first period and have now outshot their opponent 75-34 in the first period of the last six games. He was playing for Providence (AHL). They dominated most of the play in the second period, but a seeing-eye shot from the point by TJ Brodie snuck past Neuvirth to give the Flames a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes.
