Game 51 - Flames vs Red Wings Live Chat

Here we are folks. The home stretch.

The Flames rode Kiprusoff and some really tight, low scoring affairs to a decent record before the break. I'm not bullish on their chances to keep winning like that myself but at this point I don't know if they have any other options. Playoffs remain the goal, so the Flames acting like the Wild under Lemaire is what we'll see for the remainder.

The Red Wings, on the other hand, consider the post-season a foregone conclusion and have higher asiperations. I'm not sure what Detroit will do once Dastyuk, Zetterberg and Lidstrom go away, but for now they remain one of the best in the league.

Calgary has stolen some points from the Wings gaping maw so far this year, but tonight remains a tough test nonetheless.
