To Calgary Flames fans, the game was a must-lose.

To the Phoenix Coyotes, it was on the verge of must-win territory.

The Flames spoiled the party for everyone but themselves with Friday's 3-2 overtime victory.

When the Flames will be officially eliminated from playoff contention and how low in the NHL standings they finish are a couple of the storylines to follow with the team playing out the string.
