The Calgary Flames will go another season without winning in Chicago, falling 6-4 at the hands of the Blackhawks on Wednesday night at the United Center.  A torrid third period comeback wasn't enough for the visitors on this night, and yet I wonder how they use an impressive, albeit chasing, third period going forward.  Nonetheless, Calgary loses to a team that was better than them for most of the hockey game, and a team they're fighting with in the Western Conference playoff race.

I'm on a fighting game kick, okay?  Let me roll with it.  The Calgary Flames carried a 1-0 lead into the third period against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night almost in spite of themselves, but that wasn't the case in the final 20 minutes.  The Flames made the most of their third period, scoring five goals in the final frame to walk to a 6-0 win.  The loss essentially ends the season for St. Louis, and it propels Calgary to fifth in the Western Conference.
