FGD #77: Going Down To Texas (6:30pm MT, SN West)

Just over 24 hours after a triumph in Tennessee, the Calgary Flames travel to the great state of Texas for another in-conference collision with two much-needed points on the line!

The Flames inched themselves closer to a post-season appearance with a strong 5-2 performance in Nashville yesterday. Now they have a rematch against a pretty resilient Dallas Stars club which beat them (in a shootout) last week. Calgary needs points like a dog needs a bone right now, and with just six games remaining on the regular season schedule, they need them now.

All-told, they need another strong 60 minute effort like they had in Nashville.

The puck drops at 6:30pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan!
