WHAT IT MEANS

A massive logjam for top spot in the Northwest Division. The Flames and Avalanche are tied with 58 points and both have 26 wins, but the Flames are ahead with their having played one fewer game. Throw in Vancouver's totals, and it's a tight race. The Flames finish their 10-games in 16 days -- two sets of five-in-seven-nights -- with a 6-3-1 record.

WHY FLAMES LOST

Once again they couldn't hold on to a two-goal lead and couldn't come up with the go-ahead goal in the third period despite dominating the period -- in which they had a 16-4 edge in shots at one point.

FIGHT CARD

It took only 20 seconds for Calgary's Robyn Regehr to sort something out with Chris Stewart. We'll give the Avs forward the decision. Flames winger Brian McGrattan returned the favour and more with a beatdown of David Koci in a heavyweight tilt a few minutes later. And off the next faceoff, Calgary's Brandon Prust duked it out and won a fight with Cody McLeod.

UP NEXT

Tomorrow: Pittsburgh Penguins at Calgary Flames, 7:30 p.m., TSN, Fan 960.
