Flames @ Penguins

5:30, TSN locally

Enemy Perspective: Pensburgh

10 games left. Home stretch.

And thank god. March has been a tough one for the Flames. Imagine if they hadn't pulled out two improbable wins against the Red Wings...

Canucks are 3 points shy and Calgary is facing another back2back set, the first game of which is this evening. Pittsburgh is probably one of the hottest teams in the league currently having gone 7-1-2 in their last 10. Calgary, in contrast, is still stumbling and one begins to wonder if the goaltending or defense will shape up in time to save the NW Division crown and/or by the time the post-season rolls around.

Notes:

- No line-up changes that I know of this evening.

- Everyone knows to watch Malkin and Crosby, but try to keep an eye on Tyler Kennedy. He's basically the Pens David Moss this year: an underrated guy that gets good results away from the big guns.

- What happens to Jamie Lundmark when Bert returns?
