, Last Updated: 9:23 AM ET

COMING IN

The Flames have won three straight and five of six during their homestand at the 'Dome. But their 5-10-4 road record is something they are eager to turn around in order to climb the Northwest Division standings.

The Avalanche lost an overtime decision to the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

Calgary beat Colorado 5-2 at the Saddledome in their only meeting. Their first game in Denver was snowed out in December and will be played April 8.

WHO'S HOT

FLAMES -- Byron Ritchie is on fire with four goals in his last three games.

AVALANCHE -- Milan Hejduk is on a four-game point streak and is the first player who started his NHL career in 1998-99 season or later to reach 500.

WHO'S NOT

FLAMES -- Jamie Lundmark, Jeff Friesen and Tony Amonte would all love to get back onto the scoresheet.

AVALANCHE -- Jose Theodore has lost three of his last four starts and is now backing up Peter Budaj.

INJURY REPORT

FLAMES -- RW Chuck Kobasew (concussion), RW Jarome Iginla (knee), D Richie Regehr (concussion) and Darren McCarty (hip) are out. LW Marcus Nilson (knee) is questionable.

AVALANCHE -- D John-Michael Liles (foot), D Jordan Leopold (groin) and F Brad May (shoulder) are out.
