Flyers-Flames Preview (The Associated Press)

The Calgary Flames may have the ideal opportunity to earn their first home win over the Philadelphia Flyers in 14 years. The Flames are in desperate need of points in the Western Conference playoff chase and look to hand the Flyers an eighth straight road defeat Thursday night. The Flames have dropped two straight, missing a chance to move into playoff position with Tuesday’s 4-0 home defeat to St. Louis. “At the end, all you can do is win as many games as you can until the end,” goaltender Jonas Hiller told the Flames’ official website.
