Holding 3-0 and 4-3 leads in another hugely important game should usually translate to two points. It did translate to a single point on Saturday night, but the story will likely be another coughed up advantage for the Calgary Flames, leading to a 5-4 shootout loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Flyers. Thanks to the out of town scoreboard, the Flames lost ground on most of their Western Conference playoff foes.

With the Flames losers in two, things have become even more crowded in the chase for the final playoff spot in the West. The Stars currently hold down the 8th spot (68 points) with Calgary, Colorado and LA all sitting two back with 66. The Avs and Kings are on their way to winning tonight as I type this, so if the club doesn't want to find themselves chasing three teams instead of one come the trade deadline, they'll have to find a way to knock off the Flyers this evening.

With points in nine of ten games so far this month, the Calgary Flames will look to snap a modest two game losing skid tonight when they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960). It's a rare game the Flames will play that isn't against a Western Conference opponent they're right in the mix with; Calgary has just three more games, including tonight, left with Eastern Conference opponents.

Jay Feaster had himself a media scrum today, during which he said...well not much. One item stuck out to me, however, because it's one that is easily verified.
"If we trade #34, is there a position lower than 30th to finish?"
