The Flames squeaked out a close one against the Avs last night, moving them into a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The hometown heroes managed to pull an "Avalanche special" in Colorado last night, getting mostly outshot and outplayed but riding a favorable bounce and some outstanding goaltending to victory nonetheless.

Well, it looks less and less likely that the Calgary Flames are going to catch any other Western Conference playoff team not named the Colorado Avalanche. Why? Well, because all those teams they're chasing decided to win on Thursday night. Luckily, the schedule presents itself nicely for the 9th place Flames.

It's not an April Fools Day joke. The Calgary Flames really are back in this thing, and they really could be tied for a playoff spot come Saturday morning. But that assumes they go out and play the type of hockey they need to, which hasn't been a guarantee this season. Let's see what's going on here and elsewhere.

Less than two weeks to go until we see Olympic intensity again, and the best part is it will last for two months and involves more than six competitive teams.
