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.

Do you remember the wickedly awesome video game for Intellivision, Slap Shot: Super Pro Hockey? If not, the pic above illustrates the kick-ass graphics, and the advanced thinking of why the NHL should go to a 3-on-3 format before the shootout.

The games in a NHL season can really run together at this time of the year for a mediocre team. Nothing seems fresh or worthwhile, and that's about how I feel going into tonight's visit by the Flames to the Twin Cities. That boredom is hard to overcome, but if nothing else this less than entertaining little skein of affairs between Minnesota and Calgary has opened a bit of a window on how both coaches see their teams.

A seemingly uninspired Calgary Flames team wasn't able to muster much on Saturday night at the 'Dome, and they'd end up falling 3-1 at the hands of the Minnesota Wild. It drops Calgary back to 14th place in the Western Conference and two games below .500, and it's a disappointing finish to a three game home stand.
