Imagine Baertschi Backlund Nemo next year :o

Sven and Backs had some chemistry in pre-season too.

Dont know what's gonna happen to Kostopolous next year. Honestly, I'd like to see Bouma make the team full-time next year, but Tommy is awesome!

Flames could use a guy like 2004 Nemo again..

Feaster's got it covered!

Eric Francis @ericfrancis

Weird, as part of Jay Feaster's celebration of Baertschi's goal he accidentally kicked Stempniak in the shin & elbowed Jackman in the face

What a great all-around win. Although only a couple shots in the 3rd but with the lead, can't complain!

On to the Oilers! Go Leland go ;)

Really solid game! Everybody played very well. Baertschi, you are exceeding my expectations with not just the goals and the offensive awareness but also with your defensive play. That backcheck and dive to break up a potential one-time goal was really impressive and shows his commitment to an overall game. Very positive sign!

Stajan is also really impressing me. He is going into all the tough areas and is complementing Iggy and Tangs quite well.

Tomorrow is a very important game. The Flames need to beat the Oilers and start working towards getting into the 7th/8th position and seperating themselves from the rest of the group. The guys in front of Irving will have to play as well and as consistently as they have over these past 5 games. It is, like the remaining 11 games, a MUST WIN!

No matter how you look at it, the season is not resting on the game tommorow.

Yes the Flames should put the basement dwellers to bed but the bottom line is they have 11 games left and need 7 wins. They can take the easier route or they can end up facing the Canucks in those final two of three games of the season.

That's how I look at it… The Oilers and Jackets should be wins but nothing is a guarantee, the Flames need 7 wins, slowly count them off as they happen.

Honestly, Columbus and Edmonton games are must-wins. If we can't beat them we don't deserve to be in the playoffs. Simple.

5 wins in a row and still not in a playoff spot. Just shows how tough it is to make it in.


That being said I think the final 2 spots are between Sharks, Flames and Coyotes.

I'd like Phoenix to get in cuz I'm going to be there late April.

Win last night but still in 10th
Good news for the flames is they are only one point behind 7 & 8 with games in hand on both.

As an Oiler fan I'd like them to beat their provincal rival.....but as a hockey fan I'd be ok with the Flames winning, better make the playoffs damnit!

I would like to see Hall get 30 goals this season and Smyth 20.

Everybody's talking about Baertschi - and for good reason - but IMO a huge part of the Flames' success has been the resurgence of Matt Stajan.

(...wow, never thought I'd ever say that!)

But the stats don't lie: 3G, 3A, and +5 in his last 5 games. Also, his faceoff percentage has been well above 50% for the month of March. The Flames desperately needed a guy to step up and play like a real top-6 center, and Stajan (of all players!) answered the call.

Calgary's remaining games (A-away, *-2nd of back-to-back):

A - Oilers*
Blue Jackets
A - Avs
A - Wild
A - Stars
Stars
Kings
Avs
A - Canucks*
(4 day break)
Canucks
Ducks

11 games, 5 are away, and 2 back-to-backs. Other than the two games against the Nucks, they are all against bubble teams or bottom feeders. So it's definitely within Calgary's grasp. Especially when you look at how many times the bubble teams play each other down the stretch:

Stars - 11 games, 5 away, 1 b2b. CHI, *PHX, VAN, *CAL, *CAL, EDM, VAN, *SJS, *SJS, STL.
Coyotes - 10 games, 5 away, 1 b2b. EDM, *DAL, *COL, *SJS, STL, *SJS, *ANA, CBJ, STL, MIN.
Avalanche - 9 games, 5 away, 0 b2b. NYR, *CAL, *PHX, VAN, *SJS, VAN, *CAL, CBJ, NSH.
Sharks - 12 games, 5 away, 2 b2b. DET, ANA, *LAK, BOS, *PHX, *COL, ANA, *PHX, *DAL, *DAL, *LAK, *LAK.
Kings - 12 games, 6 away, 2 b2b. ANA, NSH, *SJS, STL, BOS, VAN, *CAL, EDM, MIN, EDM, *SJS, *SJS.

Those Sharks may have 12 games left, but 8 of them are against other bubble teams. Whether they win all 8 or lose them all, or even split them 50/50 (provided they're not all 3-point games), that will work out for the Flames.

Colorado has made a valiant effort, but I just don't see them making it. They've played 2-3 more games than most others, and have some tough opponents in their remaining games. Rangers, Preds, and 2 games against us - and we've historically had their number (even more than the Flames!).

I arbitrarily left Chicago off of the "bubble-list", but they're by no means free and clear either.

As long as the Flames get at least 15 of a possible 22 points down the stretch, they should squeak in.

Took my son to the Flames/Coyotes game on Feb 23. At that time I thought there was no way this team could make the playoffs.
I think they have a very good chance.

They just need to win :unsure:

It's amazing how this concept might work for teams making the playoffs and sports in general. :P

The team is definitely playing to its full potential right now (with who we have atm). Everyone is playing as a team and that's what we need to do to win hockey games.

Gotta beat those Oilers
