If there's a silver lining to the Flames current predicament, it's that all anxieties have been removed from the remaining games. No more do Flames fans have to worry about line combinations, injuries, the out-of-town scoreboard, etc. Each game can now be enjoyed as an event unto itself*. Stand out performances can be celebrated in isolation. Stinkers can be immediately forgotten. Games can now be singular without relation to prior results or future consequences. It's just hockey now folks - mean, fast, hard, fun.

While the Islanders have been a bad team for awhile, they do have a couple of name players worth noting: Former #1 pick John Tavares; former first rounder Kyle Okposo; the impressive Mark Streit; the emerget Matt Moulson.

Well, the Flames aren't going to go gently into that good night. Still alive after the 3-1 win over the Ducks yesterday, the post-season chances increased to about 20% - though at this point quoting the percentages is a bit like C-3P0 noting the odds of successfully flying through an asteroid field I think.
