In my writings on the bounces and their effect on results, I've often referred to the percentages as "the hockey gods". Things seem to be regressing back to the mean for the Flames after enjoying the favor of the hockey gods since about mid-January, resulting in their recent struggles. As such, if Calgary loses tonight Flames fans will no doubt feel like the Earl of Gloucester from King Lear: "As flies to wanton boys were are to th' gods, they kill us for their sport."

Following a tough overtime loss last night in Anaheim, the Calgary Flames get right back on the horse tonight as they take on the Los Angeles Kings for the final time this season (8:30 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). The Flames are starting to see their margin for error disappear, and a point last night was big, but they're going to need to rack up some regulation wins in their final eight games if the postseason is to be a reality.

The Calgary Flames did so much positive Sunday night in Anaheim, erasing a three goal deficit and being in a position to come away with a massive regulation win. Instead, a late powerplay goal from Teemu Selanne sent this game to overtime before the Ducks were able to use a Toni Lydman winner for another crucial victory. It's a disappointing 5-4 loss for Calgary, and it makes tomorrow's game in Los Angeles even more important.
