On the eve of training camp, Michael Cammalleri promised to show off his gap-toothed grin all season long in goal celebrations for the Calgary Flames. Minus his front teeth top and bottom - thanks to a Steven Stamkos shot to the mouth in a lockout training session - Cammalleri looks every bit the part of a cast member for Miracle or Youngblood. Only through five games, the diminutive sniper has precious little to smile about - from a personal or collective perspective. Counted on as a pure goal scorer, Cammalleri has yet to turn on the red light once. Hard to believe, but he has two assists and just five (!) shots. Something is definitely amiss with the one-time 39-goal scorer, just like his team. The 1-3-1 Flames languish in the Western Conference basement with the mighty Chicago Blackhawks coming to town tonight for a Hockey Night in Canada clash at the Sco-tiabank Saddledome.
