Wild have cooled off after that hot stretch. I'm worried that the Flames actually may be able to win this one.
Part of it might be that the Wild just hit a tough stretch in their schedule. The good thing is that they'll be playing very hard because they need the points, and if the current Flames lineup can actually beat them in that situation, that's kind of exciting in itself.
I don't expect the Flames to be able to win. The Wild aren't the Oilers, they can actually play hard when they need to. But if the Flames do beat them, well, good for the kids.
Maher said a good chance Hanowski is in the lineup tonight.
I would presume he will take Cervenka's spot. They might as well have Cervenka in the pressbox for remaining games. Does not look like Hartely wants him next year and i doubt Cervenka wants to come back to the flames next year.
