The Calgary Flames are once again on the outside looking in for a Western Conference playoff spot as they got next to no help from surrounding teams over the weekend. Following a 4-2 loss in Vancouver on Saturday night, the Flames get set for another division rival tonight, in the form of the Colorado Avalanche (8 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). The Avs are slumping in a large way, and as the Flames hope to snap a small skid of their own, they can make it nine straight losses for the team in Denver.

Sometimes you play a pretty good hockey game and you don't come away with a win, and that was the case in a lot of ways Saturday night, as Calgary fell 4-2 at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks. Calgary held a 2-1 lead in the second period, but were unable to hold off the hard charging Canucks, a team that is on top of the NHL for a reason. The loss snaps Calgary's ten game point streak and drops them out of the Western Conference playoff picture.
