Taking the Flames' history in Anaheim into account, it might be best if things shift around at least a bit between now and mid-April.

The Los Angeles Kings' uphill battle to make the NHL Playoffs got even more steep after a 5-2 loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

The number as of today: five.

"For us here in our own building we wanted to get off to an early lead and play with the lead throughout the game", said Gaudreau, who leads the Flames in scoring with 52 points (16 goals, 36 assists) in 62 games. Unlike a couple of years ago, when the team snuck in despite a bevy of underlying numbers suggesting they didn't deserve to be there, this edition of the Flames looks the part.
