Game 54 – Flames vs Sharks Live Chat

Although the Sharks have handed the Flames some embarassing losses the last few years, the contests between the two clubs have been surprisingly cloes affairs so far this seasons. I don’t know if this means tonight’s will again be equally contested or if the Flames are just due for a paddlin’. We’ll find out soon enough I suppose.

The real concern this evening is the same concern Calgary fans and management have at this time every year: the playoffs and the encroaching trade deadline. As usual, the Flames chances balance on the edge of a knife – if they lose, they’ll remain 12th in the west, log-jammed with 4 other clubs fighting for the final spot. If they win, they’ll jump to just one point behind the incumbent Minnesota Wild.

Exhausting but rarely boring I suppose.
