The games in a NHL season can really run together at this time of the year for a mediocre team. Nothing seems fresh or worthwhile, and that's about how I feel going into tonight's visit by the Flames to the Twin Cities. That boredom is hard to overcome, but if nothing else this less than entertaining little skein of affairs between Minnesota and Calgary has opened a bit of a window on how both coaches see their teams.

Scoring Chances for NHL Game Number 20482

A seemingly uninspired Calgary Flames team wasn't able to muster much on Saturday night at the 'Dome, and they'd end up falling 3-1 at the hands of the Minnesota Wild. It drops Calgary back to 14th place in the Western Conference and two games below .500, and it's a disappointing finish to a three game home stand.

If there was ever a chance for the Calgary Flames to get on a nice little winning streak (longer than two), now would be the time, with a trio of games coming up where the Flames have winning records against the opponents. That starts tonight against the Minnesota Wild, the first of a home and home set with their division rival (8pm, CBC and The FAN 960).

The Wild is a team the Flames have already met three times this season and is also one of the rare clubs they have a winning record against so far (2-1). Minny is battling with the Flames and Oliers to stay out of the Western Conference basement and their predicament is a solid reminder that even sweeping regime changes can leave an organization spinning it's wheels.
