There hasn't been much to celebrate in Calgary this season, what with their current 28th place in the standings, but surprise, surprise, today it's all smiles. That's because the after dispatching the Minnesota Wild 4-3 in overtime Saturday night, the Flames are the NHL's hottest team, winning five in a row.

After a season of negativity, winning has opened the door for some fun, as Flames forwards Lance Bouma and Brian McGrattan displayed after the game. During Matt Stajan's interview on Hockey Night in Canada's "After Hours," the pair didn't just videobomb the segment, they had their own sumo fight.

(Skip to 22:55 mark.)

Why the sumo suits?

Last October, while T.J. Galiardi of the Flames was on "After Hours," Stajan appeared in the background walking into the locker room wearing only a towel. "The guys give it to me a bit about my body," said Stajan. "I always say if we get a big win tonight we'll do a little towel walk."

Should the Flames' winning streak continue, this should call for a full-on giant sumo suit tournament at center ice.
