With the Flames losers in two, things have become even more crowded in the chase for the final playoff spot in the West. The Stars currently hold down the 8th spot (68 points) with Calgary, Colorado and LA all sitting two back with 66. The Avs and Kings are on their way to winning tonight as I type this, so if the club doesn't want to find themselves chasing three teams instead of one come the trade deadline, they'll have to find a way to knock off the Flyers this evening.

With points in nine of ten games so far this month, the Calgary Flames will look to snap a modest two game losing skid tonight when they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960). It's a rare game the Flames will play that isn't against a Western Conference opponent they're right in the mix with; Calgary has just three more games, including tonight, left with Eastern Conference opponents.

Jay Feaster had himself a media scrum today, during which he said...well not much. One item stuck out to me, however, because it's one that is easily verified.
"If we trade #34, is there a position lower than 30th to finish?"

Even with the Calgary Flames being outshot and outchanced on Thursday night at home to the Phoenix Coyotes, they still managed to score a late powerplay goal and gain another point before falling 4-3 in a shootout. Despite the ice spending far too much time tilted in the direction of the opposition of late, Calgary is still getting points out of games thanks in large part to the play of Miikka Kiprusoff. They finish Thursday night tied with Dallas and LA for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
