The NHL has reached the penultimate weekend of what's been an very interesting season. The on-ice product has been competitive for most of the games that didn't include the Oilers, and the off-ice events have had their moments as well. It's made the round-up a pretty easy feature to find material for, when my own sloth hasn't gotten in the way, and this week is no different.
This week's installment looks at an historic night for the Captain, a return of a well-regarded figure to Calgary's lineup, the triumph of the Dys, and the first glimmers of hope for the league's best player.

The title of tonight's postgame article would hold regardless if there was a milestone or not, because on the back of their captain, the Calgary Flames were able to triumph 3-2 over the St. Louis Blues. They probably won't make the playoffs, but Jarome's effort was impressive, and this night was all about 1000 for Flames fans...as in career point number for the captain, who got there by potting the winning goal late in the third period.

So Daymond Langkow is back tonight. And that should tell you everything you need to know about how much this game matters to the team.

With just four games remaining this season, and things looking very bleak for the Calgary Flames, many believe these final contests are just a formality. While there is very little hope of the Flames being postseason bound, they aren't mathematically eliminated at this point, which means there's no excuse for them to play like a team going through the motions. Tonight, they play game 79 against a St. Louis Blues team relishing their role as spoiler (6 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).
