The Avalanche host the Flames tonight at the Pepsi Center in lovely downtown Denver. Neither team has been tearing it up lately and each are probably licking their collective lips in hopes that they can get a boost tonight from a division win.
The Avs and Flames have a weird recent history together, with each team taking turns owning the other. The Avalanche won 6-3 in the last meeting and have won the last 3 meetings between the clubs. Before that, Calgary had won the last 9 - yikes - including a certain February 14th game that didn't actually happen. Between Jan 18, 2009 and Jan 11, 2010, the Avalanche won 6 straight against Calgary. Before that, 4 straight for the Flames. So, it seems to be feast or famine for these teams and lately the Avs have been the Feasters (yes, I did that)
