The Calgary Flames are coming off of a bump in the road after losing to the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets in overtime. The loss hurt their playoff chances a wee bit, though not nearly as much as it would have with a regulation loss. Jarome Iginla and the Colorado Avalanche aren't quite out of the playoff picture just yet and will be looking to get two points of their own (they're basically dead though).

At the moment the Los Angeles Kings are beating the New Jersey Devils and the Flames need a win to keep pace. The Minnesota Wild are beating the Toronto Maple leafs as well and the Winnipeg Jets have a pretty good chance of defeating the lowly Edmonton Oilers. Hey, at least the Ottawa Senators are taking care of the San Jose Sharks (again, they're basically dead though)!

By the way, the Avalanche rank 29th in Corsi difference, Fenwick difference and shot difference per game, so if the Flames lose the possession battle then expect the recap to be delayed as we collectively down our sorrows with ice cream.
