The Calgary Flames will welcome both Craig Conroy and Curtis Glencross back to the lineup tonight as they get set for their fifth meeting with the Minnesota Wild at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul (6 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960).  The return of the two Calgary forwards means two have to sit out: Ales Kotalik and Mikael Backlund.
