The Calgary Flames welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight, and it starts off three straight at home for the team (7 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960). It's a real test for the Flames, as this three game stint at the 'Dome features teams Calgary "should beat"; however, that doesn't really matter if they don't beat them. So it starts tonight against Columbus.

The Blue Jackets are one of those few clubs technically within reach of the Flames this year, with 33 points and a couple of games in hand. It's a familiar position for Columbus, who have perenially battled (and mostly failed) to find the post season for years now. The club's inception and initial years of operation were marred by the boobery of Doug MacLean, but the franchise managed to shake off the stink of failure when they replaced him with Scott Howson. At least enough to be competitive.

It was a game where Calgary probably deserved a better fate, especially the way they dominated things in the third period, but in the end, they'd fall 3-2 in a shootout in Anaheim. Calgary erased a 2-0 deficit in the third period to force extra time, and once you get to overtime and a shootout, roll a dice or flip a coin...the Ducks come away with the two points.
