Flames vs. Avalanche Game Preview

The Calgary Flames and Colorado Avalanche are both tied for first place in the northwest division and are playing for sole possession for first.

With first place at stake, with the winner gaining sole possession of the top spot in the Northwest. Each team has 42 points coming in, and while Calgary has been the hotter team of late, Colorado has consistently rebounded from any hiccups in what has fast become a surprising turnaround season. Safe to say, both sides will come out ready for this one.

“It’s a huge game for us. They beat us last time they were here and we weren’t happy about it. It’s been our problem the whole time,” Flames forward Curtis Glencross “We beat ourselves. As long as we play our own game and play the way that we can, there’s not a team that can really touch us.”

The Flames have been stumped by Colorado this season, going 0-2-0. Both games were decided by a score of 3-2.

– In the Last 10 games the Flames are (6-2-2) and the Avs are (4-3-3)
– Miikka Kiprusoff hasn’t given up more than 2 goals in his last 10 starts
– Wojtek Wolski has 12 goals for the team lead for the Avs and has points in 12 of his last 14 games.

Craig Conroy has been sidelined for the past two games but the winger believes he’ll be able to draw into the lineup tonight. He’s been fully participating in practices and has been scratched as precaution.

This will be the game of night in the NHL so look for an exciting high-octane contest between two powerhouses.
