Flames' Bourque faces disciplinary hearing today
Flames' forward Rene Bourque will have a disciplinary hearing with the NHL this morning after delivering an elbow to Capitals' center Nicklas Backstrom in the third period of Washington's 3-1 win Tuesday night.

Bourque went to the penalty box for elbowing, while Backstrom stayed in the game for two more shifts. He was unable to finish the game.

Bourque was suspended two games last month for a hit on Brent Seabrook of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
