Okay so Calgary's playoff hopes are still very much mathematical in nature, and a whole lot has to happen for them to get to the promised land...but after an impressive Friday night in St. Louis, the Flames still have mathematical life. A win tonight over the Colorado Avalanche would guarantee that fact would remain true, and really, there's no excuse for the Flames not to leave the Pepsi Center without two points (6 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).

The NHL has reached the penultimate weekend of what's been an very interesting season. The on-ice product has been competitive for most of the games that didn't include the Oilers, and the off-ice events have had their moments as well. It's made the round-up a pretty easy feature to find material for, when my own sloth hasn't gotten in the way, and this week is no different.
This week's installment looks at an historic night for the Captain, a return of a well-regarded figure to Calgary's lineup, the triumph of the Dys, and the first glimmers of hope for the league's best player.

The title of tonight's postgame article would hold regardless if there was a milestone or not, because on the back of their captain, the Calgary Flames were able to triumph 3-2 over the St. Louis Blues. They probably won't make the playoffs, but Jarome's effort was impressive, and this night was all about 1000 for Flames fans...as in career point number for the captain, who got there by potting the winning goal late in the third period.
