    Default Calgary vs Los Angeles: playoffs on the line!

    Ok, here we go! A win over the Kings tonight and the Flames are in the playoffs! I'll be well asleep by the time the game starts but excited at the possibility of what was completely unexpected by most people at the start of the season.

    Crazy. Flames completely hold the Kings's destiny -- beat 'em tonight and rest guys against Winnipeg in game 82.
    This is one of the more exciting season ends in awhile.

    Sens still have a shot in the East (which was talked about as locked up a month ago).

    And the Art Ross and Calder races are super close as well. Love it!

    The key is the Winnipeg game tonight. If Winnipeg beats Colorado, they are in with 98 pts and rest their key guys on Saturday giving Calgary a favorable matchup. Calgary owns the tiebreaker over LA. Am I thinking this correctly?

    I'm on board for Calgary to advance into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, would love to see this happen! BUT...it's LA and when they have had their backs against the wall they have found ways to prevail. Last year they had a few game 7's in the playoffs back-to-back and advanced. Tonight is a game 7 for them. They have the experience and battle tested players. Hopefully Calgary can keep this ride going.

    Yeah what a finish to this years season, love it. Calgary holds the tie breaker over both Kings and Jets, and the Kings hold the tie breaker over the Jets. Gonna be a big game tonight for the Flames. Go Flames, Jets, Sens!

    It's so unnatural for a team to play whenever it feels like it and get away with it as often as the Kings do. So go Flames!

    i'm cheering for the underdogs to get it. if teams like calgary/ottawa/winnipeg don't make it it's still a successful season so they wont do anything earth shattering in the offseason.

    but a team like LA/BOS/PIT, if they miss the playoffs, that's a guarenteed high profile move coming. coach fired, star player traded, something's got to give.

    and i've been saying this for a while, LA could be a president's trophy winning team if they got rid of sutter. i really hope they miss the playoffs and decide to pull a NSH and get rid of the defensive minded coach and let their players play. would be the last summer you could buy like on kopitar/carter/toffoli etc.

    GO FLAMES!

    Tempting, but not sure I can be bothered trying to find a crappy free stream to watch at 2am! Also, I think the last time I sacrificed sleep to watch the Flames was game 7 of the Cup Final...

    If they make the playoffs though...

    I'll miss the first period of this one, but I wanted to make sure we had a thread open because this game is just massive.

    Prep for it with some info here:

    Of note, Gaborik has 18 points in his last 13 games against the Flames. And line combos:

    #1 24.4% BROWN,DUSTIN - LEWIS,TREVOR - STOLL,JARRET
    #2 19.3% CARTER,JEFF - KING,DWIGHT - TOFFOLI,TYLER
    #3 18.9% GABORIK,MARIAN - KOPITAR,ANZE - WILLIAMS,JUSTIN


    #1 26.8% GAUDREAU,JOHNNY - HUDLER,JIRI - MONAHAN,SEAN
    #2 20.8% BACKLUND,MIKAEL - COLBORNE,JOE - RAYMOND,MASON
    #3 16.4% BOUMA,LANCE - JONES,DAVID - STAJAN,MATTHEW


    It would make it easier on me if the Flames would win and take LA out. Then putting together my draft list doesn't have to be so last minute!

    my prediction for the ottawa/pittsburgh game was on the right track but maybe not the right goal order lol.

    nonetheless, i predict calgary will win 4-2 and eliminate the kings from playoff contention.
    One day I will quit fantasy hockey, today is not that day.

    my prediction for the ottawa/pittsburgh game was almost dead on, had the pens scored the empty netter i would have nailed it.

    so lets see if i can come super close and then screw up at the last minute again.

    I'm going to say...this game is a blowout. LA destroys calgary, scoring 5 goals.

    This will be a heck of a game. I sure hope Calgary wins (both for the Jets and to have another Canadian team in the mix), but this is a tough one to pick. I'll say Calgary 3-2. What a night this will be. It's like a pre-playoff game 7!

    I am going to the game so hopefully it lives up to the hype. As a Canucks fan I hope Calgary wins. 4 - 2 with an empty netter to seal the deal.
