As they charge towards their Cinderella play-off berth, the Flames can see the imposing figure of the Los Angeles Kings looming ever closer in the rearview mirror. It's a bit like Ichabod Crane trying desperately to stay beyond the reach of the Headless Horseman. We'll see if the Flames can reach the bridge in time or not.
With this in mind, we discuss Joe Colborne, Deryk Engelland and what the Flames ideal line-up might look like in this week's mailbag.

Last night, the Calgary Flames crept a bit closer to a playoff berth via a shootout loss to the Dallas Stars. Loss or not, they got a point, and points are what matter right now.
And make no mistake about it, we're headed into a final 17 days of the 2014-15 season that are all about numbers. The most important numbers are this: there are five teams fighting for four spots. Somebody is going home unhappy on April 11.
I personally think nothing will be settled until that final weekend. Here's why.

If I had told you that the second person signed from the 2014 NHL Draft class by the Calgary Flames would be the last guy chosen, you probably wouldn't have believed me.
But it's happened.
The Flames announced today the signing of 2014 seventh round pick Austin Carroll to an entry-level contract, presumably for three years. The deal begins next season. (The first player signed was Sam Bennett, by the way.)
