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.

This is something I would categorize as being a fairly important contest.

The Calgary Flames have no other choice to win a hockey game tonight, and in dire need of a win to snap a three game losing skid, they get the best tonic to do...the Colorado Avalanche (7 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). The Avs are almost a joke of a hockey team at this point, with losses in 21 of of their last 23 games and right in the race for a lottery pick in June. If the Flames lose this game, you can kiss their playoff hopes goodbye.

With the Ducks victory last night, the Flames are technically in 9th in the Western Conference at this time (although just a single point and two more games played separates them from Nashville in 10th).
