Just The Facts (Mostly Facts)

-It’s clinching time again! If the Flames can handle their business against the Coyotes tonight, just getting a point in regulation will give them an “X” next to their name as they will own a playoff spot. That could all happen before the puck even drops, if they get help from an Oilers win against Vegas.

-Keep an eye on Matthew Tkachuk. Counting tonight, the Flames have 8 games left. Tkachuk has 92 points. Just saying.
