Against all odds the Flames played one of their best games of the season at the end of December against the Canucks. Vancouver has managed to keep winning since then, but they haven't been quite as dominant on the shot and possession side as they were previously.
The Flames obviously can't worry about that tonight. They aren't puck hogs themselves these days and with the Blair Jones now on the shelf they have about one and half lines worth of worthwhile NHL forwards at this point. Brent's going to have to be on his toes with the last change this evening, becasue AV loves to get his scorers soft ice time. And with no less than 3 AHLers in the Flames top 9, then will be plenty of it.

The Calgary Flames return home tonight after a 1-0-2 road trip through the Pacific Division; they'll play their fourth game in six nights against the red hot Vancouver Canucks (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960). Entering action two points back of the final West playoff spot, the Flames also sit 12th in the Conference with 27 games remaining this season. Hopefully a busy week of hockey doesn't play a factor in tonight's meeting for Calgary.

As many of you know, I managed to get a press pass for the Heat game last night. it was my first foray into the world of the legitimate journalists and was lucky to know run into Ryan Pike, Lisa McRitchie and Ryan Pinder who all helped guide me over some speed bumps. Thanks also to Delaney Dunn, the Heat's Communication director, and of course Pat Steinberg who sent me in with some hints and tips.
