Picture perfect wins aren't what the Calgary Flames need, they just need the two points if they're going to have any chance at the postseason. Thanks in large part to Miikka Kiprusoff, Calgary was able to take a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche and make sure mathematically they weren't going to be eliminated from the playoff picture. Combining the Calgary win with a Chicago loss, and the Flames sit just one point back of a playoff spot with just two games to go.

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.
