There's no question how important tonight's game is for the Calgary Flames, as they look to build off a 7-4 win over Dallas on Friday night. The Flames are now six points back of a playoff spot in the Western Conference, and after tonight, they play six of their next eight games at home. Tonight, they're on the road with an opportunity to really come close to entering the playoff conversation...the only problem is, they're on the road against the Western Conference leading Vancouver Canucks (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).

I hope you're prepared for this folks. There's a very real chance that the Vancouver Canucks are a legit Stanley Cup contender this year. Of the six Canadian teams, only Vancouver is going to have a real chance of going all the way in the foreseeable future. Montreal is good enough to make the dance this year, but they're a few fathoms away from being elite.

It was one of those nights where seemingly everything was going in, as the Calgary Flames pumped home seven goals on 19 shots to take a 7-4 win over the Dallas Stars. It was a rather sloppy hockey game with some good fortune (for once) shining on the Flames. They move on to Vancouver to take on a Canucks team they'll probably need to play a little better against to earn two points.

Henrik Karlsson goes tonight, and that's got me wondering.
