from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, The Flames, meanwhile, have now fallen to 15th place in the Western Conference standings, behind both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Edmonton Oilers.

To Make The Playoffs, Flames Need A Much Better Kiprusoff

from Eric Duhatschek of the Glob and Mail, ...the stats line on Kiprusoff is so uncharacteristically grim – just a 3.43 goals-against average, an .857 save percentage and only three wins in 10 decisions.
