Etc: The Flames were surging a little more than a month ago, the surprise story of the league. On Nov. 26, they were 14-8-2. Since then, they've won three games. Calgary finally grabbed a point in Saturday's shootout loss in Vancouver, having suffered seven straight defeats in regulation. The Kings have won back-to-back games at home after a 1-3-1 trip. This is their final game before the Christmas break. Forward Marian Gaborik has sparked the Kings, of late, with six goals in his last four games.
