A week ago, the Calgary Flames were trying to punch their ticket to the postseason. They’ve now done so, and are trying to do what they can to capture their first division crown in over a decade.
Chasing a playoff spot
(Playoff spot odds throughout these tables via Sports Club Stats.)
The Flames have officially clinched. They have a 21-point edge on the ninth place team. They cannot be caught by Dallas or Colorado, either. The lowest they can finish in the Western Conference is sixth.
Chasing home ice in the first round
The Flames are 10 points up on Vegas with eight games remaining. Their magic number to lock down home ice in the first round is 3.5 Flames wins and/or Golden Knights losses.
Chasing a divisional title
Due to the Flames going on a bit of a heater and the Sharks slumping, the Flames have a five-point edge with eight games remaining. The Flames’ magic number to clinch is any combination of six wins or Sharks losses.
Chasing top spot in the West
As with the divisional race, the Flames are in surprisingly good shape here. Their magic number to clinch the conference is any combination of six wins or Sharks losses.
