I had wished that as with my Arizona sojourn, another trip to the Southern U.S. would signal a Flames' winning streak. We've seen how that's worked out, unfortunately, so any hope that spending all my time during the winter months in a more hospitable climate would act as a talisman for the team has foundered. I was all ready to pitch that idea to Murray Edwards for a few bucks, too. Drat.
At any rate, life does go on, and the round-up is back for a perusal of a few items of interest around the patch. This week, the Flames hit the rocks, the Pens carry on quite swimmingly, and the endless bickering over the Coyotes' fate is, well, endless.

Overall, the season for the Calgary Flames isn't over. They still have six games remaining with a mathematical shot at the NHL postseason, but no one is going to deny what a massive blow Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks. In a game that wasn't close at any point, the Flames lost for the sixth time in seven games and saw the worst possible scenario happen on the out of town scoreboard.

Time is an odd concept; in this context, it refers to a tangible number of games for the Calgary Flames, as they just don't have very many left to get to an amount of points needed to earn a playoff spot. The Flames play game number 76 of the season tonight against the San Jose Sharks, a game Calgary really does need to win (8 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).
