San Jose Sharks at Calgary Flames [Game 78]

Please actually play hockey and try to clinch this time.

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off of the disaster that was whatever one would call that game against the Los Angeles Kings, the Calgary Flames are back on the ice to take on another southern California team in the San Jose Sharks. The Flames fell for the Kings rubbish en route to a loss where they couldn't clinch their spot in the playoffs. Hopefully tonight they can be much cleaner.

There will be zero changes to the forwards and zero changes to the defense. Everything is status quo for Calgary. Freddie Hamilton, Curtis Lazar, and Dennis Wideman pick up the healthy scratches for tonight.

Brian Elliott is back in net. He'll go up against Aaron Dell. Chad Johnson will once again back up Elliott.

Without further ado, it's game time. Hopefully the Flames can clinch and then start worrying about what spot they'll land in and who their opponent will be. Let's go Flames!
