Flames trying to track down Wild

Mar 29, 2008 - 1:59 PM
Edmonton (39-34-6) at Calgary (40-27-10) 10:00 pm EDT

CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) - The Calgary Flames look to edge closer to first-place Minnesota in the Northwest Division on Saturday when they host the Edmonton Oilers.

Calgary's 3-2 home win over Vancouver on Tuesday temporarily allowed the Flames to move ahead Minnesota for the division lead. However, in the three days since, the Wild - who are idle on Saturday - secured two wins to move three points ahead.

While only six points separate second from last in the Northwest, Calgary appears to be in good shape for a Western Conference playoff berth.

The club is locked in a three-way tie for fifth at 90 points with Dallas (42-29-6) and Colorado (42-31-6).

Edmonton is making a serious run at the playoffs, but suffered a disastrous 5-4 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Friday.

The Oilers led 4-3 led until Joe Sakic scored with less than six seconds to go in regulation. The Colorado veteran then won the game in the extra session.

Edmonton sits 10th in the West, two points back of eighth-place Nashville (39-31-8).
