Game 34: Wild @ Flames, 7:00pm MT - SNET-W(HD) / Fan960

(17-15-2, 36 PTS)


(20-11-4, 44 PTS)


The Pengrowth Saddledome

As usual, the Calgary Flames are playing well at home. That doesn't bode well for the Minnesota Wild.
Calgary (20-11-4) defeated Ottawa 6-3 on Saturday to improve to 2-0-1 on its season-high five-game homestand. The Flames, who have recorded at least 21 wins at the Pengrowth Saddledome in four straight seasons, are 11-4-3 on home ice this season and practically unbeatable there against Minnesota. The Wild are 3-15-1 with three ties all-time at Calgary, including losses in their last four visits.
Bourque has four goals with an assist in his last three contests, giving him 14 goals and eight assists in his first season with the Flames, who are 4-0-3 since their last regulation loss at Montreal on Dec. 9.
While trying for a rare victory in Calgary, Minnesota (17-15-2) also hopes to avoid a sixth straight road loss. The Wild haven't won on the road since a 6-2 victory at Nashville on Nov. 29, and have been outscored 15-6 in their last five contests away from home.

The Wild have been playing really poorly as of late and the Flames need to jump on that. Besides Gaborik, they have zero offensive weapons so if we can score a few early, we can put the game away quickly. I hope Kipper and the D continue their great form and I'd love to see Bourque light it up tonight as well.

  • It says in The Herald that GlenX is questionable for tonight.
  • Owen Nolan won't play as he's on the Wild's Injured Reserve .
  • D-men Kurtis Foster and MA Bergeron will also not play tonight.
  • Kim Johnsson out with family emergency.
