Make-or-break week in Calgary

08:25 AM ET 03.11 | Is it time to panic in Calgary, where after two losses in California the Flames are 9-10-4 on the season? Well ... it's getting closer. Monday's rematch with the Kings will mark the midway point of the season for the Flames, who have once again dropped below the .500 mark. When the players rolled out of bed Sunday morning, they were only five points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a couple of games in hand. The scary part is the number of teams they would have to leapfrog to move into post-season position. The April 3 trade deadline is fast approaching, and the Flames' results this week could determine if GM Jay Feaster is buying or selling.

Make? Or brake? With what? They'd better cash in their blue chips while they still have some value.

I can hear the hero on horseback rushing back from the Gulf of Mexico to rescue Jay and the Flames. The Hero of Alberta is on his way and no stone will be left unturned. I see a Cup in his future. (Full of coffee)? And once he's done there, he's gonna help the Caps too. The guy can do anything. Hurry back Harry.

Oh quit whining because you are blessed with excellent hockey, exciting personalities, and passionate home-ice fans.

LMFAO - If you think being "blessed" is having something jammed down your throat every freakin' Saturday night you'd be a hit in prison.

I know Danny's a good guy but he has more chance of going to prison than The Vatican. :-)

hilarious. Canada was whooping up on them, and one of the mexican pitchers threw at a Canadian hitter. well, i guess HNIC isn't vroadcast down there, because the Mexicans weren't aware of bench clearing incidents from Canadians

Best part is that it was a real fight, not one of the phony ones you usually see in MLB.
