It was January 24th, on a train ride from Montreal to Ottawa.  The Calgary Flames had just suffered an embarrassing 5-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.  The team was in disarray, and it looked like another season out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Flames.  That is when Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan pulled his team aside, ordered up some beers and talked it out…well the result is a playoff birth!

Take a look at how one simple train ride may have been the turning point in the season for the Calgary Flames.
