Team Scope

Wild: It looked worse than it turned out to be. A look at Cal Clutterbuck's collision with Edmonton's Taylor Hall was cringe-worthy, but Clutterbuck came out with a contusion on his left thigh and will sit out Saturday's matchup. He will be further evaluated when the team returns home on Sunday. Hall received a two-game suspension from the NHL.

"I think it's a little reckless," Clutterbuck told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune when asked about the hit. "I've been in that situation a lot of times personally and I know there's a fine line between milliseconds and split seconds. Personally, I probably wouldn't put myself in that situation. But he made a decision. He was probably a little frustrated with the way the game was going. He made a decision, and here we are."

Clutterbuck led the NHL in hits the last three seasons and has built up an undeserved reputation as a head-hunter among opposing fans, especially when he has never been suspended or fined for his aggressive play.

Meanwhile, Matt Cullen scored twice on the Oilers and set up Devin Setoguchi with the go-ahead goal in the win.

"It was a step forward for us," Cullen said. "It's a big deal for us to get a road win and it was good to see us respond to a bit of adversity and come back with a fight.

"As a team we have to establish that. That when you are down one that you are going to be OK and make that push."

Flames: Only the Islanders at 2-6-0 have a worse record at home than the Flames, and a 3-1 loss to the Kings on Wednesday compounded the frustration. They've allowed an average of 3.7 goals per game in the Scotiabank Saddledome, which is second-worst in the NHL. Asking around the dressing room would reveal a common answer -- lack of aggressiveness.

"Joey MacDonald gave us a great game, but the bottom line is we have to be a grittier team," said coach Bob Hartley, upset over a run taken his goaltender in the second period and the passive response that followed. "It's as simple as this. We need to be in people's face. They ran our goalie. There was no consequences to this, and that's just not acceptable.

"We might not have the biggest team, but when you play as a team, you have to stick up for your teammates. And if it means you need to take a slap for the entire team or whether we go five guys, I think team unity is very important. We have a great group of guys, but we're just not playing tough enough."

Who's hot: Goalie Niklas Backstrom bounced back from the flu and stopped 27 shots in Thursday's win, improving to 3-0-1 in his last four outings. He was also the winner in last week's meeting with the Flames and is 6-1-0 with a 0.90 goals-against average in the Saddledome.

Injury report: Wild defenceman Justin Falk (flu) did not play against the Oilers but remains day-to-day. The one player the Flames miss most, goalie Miikka Kiprusoff (MCL sprain), is still at least a week away. Help up front is on the way, though, as forward Sven Baertschi (hip) has shed the no-contact jersey and could be ready for Saturday's game.
No need to post lines, they'll change after the first four shifts.

Sven allegedly returning tonight!





GO FLAMES GO!

Thank you little girl, please accept my hockey tree

Skobel24 02-23-2013 07:05 PM

I'm actually gonna say Flames win, since they're rocking the 3rd jersey tonight.

TheHudlinator 02-23-2013 07:06 PM

Either we dominate for 60 minutes and lose 1-0 or we get worked and lose 2-1. Exciting times with Minny in town.

TheGaudfather 02-23-2013 07:14 PM

Flames 5

Wild 3

Flames scorers: Tanguay, Iginla (2g,1a,1fight:nod:), baertschi, cammy.
Wild: Seto, Parise, Koivu.

Other predictions within the game: Flames score 2 in first period, 2 in second, 1 in third. I'm bored waiting for game:help:

TheHudlinator 02-23-2013 07:24 PM

Some pretty strange lines tonight, But I do like the top line and I like Hudler with Baertschi but I hate Comeau :laugh:

Alex Tanguay-Matt Stajan-Jarome Iginla

Curtis Glencross-Mike Cammalleri-Lee Stempniak

Jiri Hudler-Blake Comeau-Sven Baertschi

Akim Aliu-Steve Begin-Tim Jackman

Mark Giordano-Jay Bouwmeester

Dennis Wideman-T.J. Brodie

Chris Butler-Derek Smith

Cervenka isn't sitting due to poor performance, Hartley doesn't think he is in good enough condition and is going to give him some time to try and catch up after missing several months.

Unlimited Chequing 02-23-2013 07:56 PM

Stajan on the top line? Nice. I think he'll make a noticeable difference this game.

Here's to the start of our 22-11 run! :laugh:

Ace Rimmer 02-23-2013 08:05 PM

Can we expect a repeat of the last time these teams met?

Flames92 02-23-2013 08:24 PM

I'm just happy Sven is back.. I hope he scores tonight. Some points from Sven and Iggy along with a regulation loss and im happy (can't believe its come to this :cry:)

Ace Rimmer 02-23-2013 08:29 PM

Aside from Cammalleri playing centre, is there any word about tonight's lineup?

Flames92 02-23-2013 08:38 PM

And we wonder why we can't win? look at our centres :laugh: I really hope Cams and Comeau switch after a couple shifts because I just have ZERO patience for Comeau.

If Jones was centreing any but the 4th line, we'd have a problem.

At least we had another center that was winning faceoffs. I'd rather Jones be on that Baertschi line than Comeau, but maybe that's just me.

What's the score? I'm out watching the fight tonight and I'd rather watch someone other than the Flames get beat up for once
