Once again the Flames find themselves on the short end of the stick, and with eight games left, there isn't much of a stick left to grasp to. Going into this game, it was viewed that Calgary was going to need to go 6-2-1 to make the playoffs; well if it's true, they burned the one and only extra time loss they have been afforded.

FGD: Surviving the Avalanche

Colorado is the current placeholder of the final playoff spot with 83-points. They have played more games than practically everyone else in the West so their position is a tenuous one. With just eight contests remaining, Colorado will only be able to hold off San Jose, Los Angeles and Calgary if they continue to win.

The Flames, for their part, are still looking up through a maze of legs. The game against the Avs tonight is the first of seven games in a 12-day span, with many of the matches against other WC playoff hopefuls (COLX2, LAK, DALX2). These same two teams meet again next Friday, March the 30th in what could well prove to be a game that determines both club's fates. Tonight, though, each could still do serious damage to the others' aspirations.
