Flames Versus Stars Gamethread

New, comments

This is Calgary's second last game before the Olympic break...and the trade deadline. Start making up your hypothetical deals accordingly (assuming you hold out hope for a last quarter drive for the NW division crown).

The Stars come into town boasting a healthy Mike Ribeiro and three NHL goalies. Like the Flames, they'll be fighting tooth and nail for a play-off spot down the stretch, so things might get pretty nasty tonight.

Stuff to watch for:

- Langkow and Higgins saw a lot of heavy lifting in Tampa Bay and Ottawa. If Butter decides to give them the toughest matchups tonight, we can be certain he's moved towards sheltering Iginla with a "shut-down" type unit. It's just too bad that it has to be the team's "second" scoring unit.

- Steve Ott is apparently not in the line-up tonight. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

- I'll probably be out of the house for tonight's contest, so unless someone else takes it upon themselves, there will be no scoring chance count for this one.
