Both the Ducks and the Flames will be desperate for a win today: the Flames, because a 4 game losing streak would remind them of the late season swoons they experienced under both Keenan and Playfair, while the Ducks are currently enmeshed in the cluster-f that is the Western Conference play-off bubble.

Although the team is busy having closed door meetings, there isn't too much to complain about in Flames country currently. I mean, there's the road record, but Im not too worried about it.

Otherwise, the Flames are golden. They are ensconced in 3rd in the Conference, with long views between the teams ahead and behind them. Injuries are few and Kiprusoff has actually looked like a starting goalie the last month or so. We're a month away from the trade deadline and two months away from the post-season. Manufacturing concern is going to be difficult for awhile here. When "guarding against complacency" is your primary concern, you're in a good place.
