Six-hundred miles and twenty-eight points separate these two Northwest Division rivals but every game is played as if it’s a fight to the death. There’s no backing down from the Flames who clearly have no chance at catching the 22-11-6 Vancouver Canucks. For the fourth season in a row, the Flames can play spoilers yet again.
Last meeting: Saturday, April 6, these two teams met in Vancouver where the Flames lost by a score of 5-2 to the ‘Nucks. The score didn’t accurately represent the game, however, as Calgary outshot the hosts 38-22, with Kiprusoff playing one of his worst games this season.
Who’s hot: Calgary’s Alex Tanguay has goals in back-to-back games while MacDonald’s 39 saves Monday night was a season high for him. The Sedin’s are always dangerous, and have a combined 9 points in their last three games. Vancouver defenseman Dan Hamhuis has a 3-game point streak.
