Calgary's season series with the Vancouver Canucks will end with zero regulation wins for the Flames, after they fell 3-2 in overtime Saturday night at the 'Dome.

And for the second straight year, with their non-playoff fate sealed, the Flames close the season against the Vancouver Canucks...this time at the 'Dome (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). Last season, the season finale was played on the west coast, and Calgary was rolled in a rather useless effort...something you hope doesn't happen in front of a home crowd tonight.
