Calgary Flames in November Run to 7-2-4 Record

So we didn't expect the Flames to turn it around like this. Did you? Fans are used to a little high and a big low. We're still waiting for the floor to fall out from beneath this team. But given the play throughout the first two months of the season, you get the sense...
