Gameday number 79 for the Flames as they take on the Vancouver Canucks in a Pacific Division rivalry matchup. The Flames come into this game having won 8 of their last ten and sit atop the Pacific Division at the moment. Meanwhile, the Canucks come into this game having won 6 of their last ten and they're still trying to fight for a playoff spot although that window might be closed.
This is the fourth and final meeting between these two teams this season. The Flames have the upper hand, having won two out of the three matchups thus far. On one side one team has been on a tear all season long and on the other side one team has been very inconsistent and hasn't been able to establish a clear cut identity for their team.
Dan Vladar is expected to get the start in between the pipes tonight for the Flames and Thatcher Demo is expected to get the start for the Canucks on the other side.
