With the Anaheim Ducks and Calgary Flames meeting tonight at the Honda Center, everyone is aware of the stakes and the situation. The Flames and Ducks are tied for ninth in the Western Conference, and they play for the third time this season. With just nine games remaining for Calgary, the two remaining Anaheim games become massively important, starting tonight (6 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).

It hasn't been a good weekend for the idle Flames. All of their direct rivals for the final playoff spot have been collecting points, pushing Calgary down to the 10th in the conference as a result. More bad news: the Flames have still played more games than everyone except the Canucks, Sharks and Coyotes, all of whom are all basically out of reach.

There really wasn't much competition Thursday night at the 'Dome, as the Calgary Flames took a 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche without much resistence. The game was decided on two early powerplay goals, and with the Flames needing a win, they did more than enough to make sure a winnable game didn't get away on them. The victory snaps a three game losing skid and moves Calgary back into a playoff spot for the time being.
