A battle between the 1st & 2nd place teams in the North Division.

A win by the Flames tonight will set up an epic battle for 1st place on Boxing Day (CAN) / Day after Christmas Day (US).

The Calgary Flames could make this a double win as they take on the Comet's NHL parent Vancouver Canucks tonight.

A personal note: There are 30 teams in the NHL. On my list of favorites, Vancouver ranks 30th. Always has. Always will.

Dual defeats of the Flames at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks & their AHL affiliate Utica Comets partly spoiled a perfect evening out as I was attending a couple of Christmas festivities.

A penalty-laden affair with David Wolf scoring the only Adirondack goal, but still worthy of a teddy bear toss.

Still trying to figure out why ex-Flame prospect Carter Bancks received 1st star honours.

A chance for revenge on Friday in Utica.

Here is the playoff wild card projection chart again.

It is simply a numerical projection of the projected points teams will achieve at their season's current Point %.

A lot of games remain so some of the calculated data can dramatically shift after each week's play.

 

What is important is that it attempts  to estimate the wild card cutoff point total and then indicates what kind of win-loss record will be needed in the remainder of the season to make it into the playoffs.

The Flames meet their main rival & nemesis, the Utica Comets, who have won all 4 matches so far this season.

We currently sit a mere 5 points behind them in the standings.

Looking forward to an Adirondack win tonight kick-starting our ascension to North Division supremacy.

Utica seems to always have the Flames' number.  It was the same with the Heat too.  Ugh.

Boxscore          Utica Comets vs Adirondack Flames - ahl.neulion.com (Loads slowly - recommend pre-loading)

 

The Utica Comets continue their dominance in the win column versus the Flames.

The road to the North Division title will likely lead through the Utica Comets, therefore Adirondack will need to post plenty of wins in the 7 remaining games against what has become their primary rival.

In games against other AHL teams, the Flames have a 18-7-1-1 (38 pts) record vs. the Comets 15-5-5-0 (35 pts) record.

The 3 game weekend on the road continues tonight against the Montreal AHL affiliate Hamilton Bulldogs (14-12-5-0).

The wins must start coming again after 3 consecutive losses.

Utica is currently 7 pts ahead & that gap must not be allowed to increase.

Victories against the Hamilton Bulldogs tonight & the Toronto Marlies tomorrow are essential.

The Flames snap out of their losing streak with a dominating 5-0 drubbing of the Hamilton Bulldogs.

The line of Emile Poirier (2G/1A), Bill Arnold (1G/1A) and Sven Baertschi (1G/3A) with all-star performances.

Ortio with his 3rd shutout continues to show his potential for an eventual place on the Calgary Flames.

Adirondack has an opportunity to continue their winning ways with a match against the Toronto Marlies early tomorrow afternoon.

Culkin is having an amazing season. A few months ago he was a low profile prospect. A Kulak clone. Now he is one of our top defensive prospects (I have him and Hickey neck and neck). One of the best surprises in Adirondack.

Coming off a convincing 5-0 victory, the Flames face another must-win situation against a team below them in the standings. We will also play the Marlies in the next game on Wednesday afternoon in Glens Falls.

Utica Comets continue to forge ahead with wins so we must keep pace if we have any hope of knocking them off their pedestal.

Boxscore

Adirondack Flames vs Toronto Marlies - ahl.neulion.com [Video Highlights - Pre-Load Recommended ]

 

Despite pummeling the Marlie goaltender with an abundance of shots for the majority of the game, it looked like the Flames were done down 2-1 in the late stages of the 3rd period.

A penalty shot was awarded in the 3rd when the Marlies knocked the net off it's moorings at 18:08.

Corban Knight, who just came off IR tonight, converted the penalty shot & set the stage for a dramatic OT victory.

The teams started the OT going 3v3 due to end of regulation penalties and Bill Arnold converted a Baertschi pass to net the winner. Next game Friday evening when we meet our archenemy again, the Utica Comets.

For the 1st game of 2015 we have an encounter with our most significant foe, the Utica Comets.

The Flames will have to start taking wins away from Utica if they have any hope of winning the North Division.

DashvsScorch_zps3ca780a5.png

 

What a huge disappointment with the emergence of the new mascot, Dash. I imagine his back story is that he was responsible for saving a firefighter from a vicious beatdown by Scorch, the last surviving ember of the Great Fire of 1864.

Dash will surely be a hit with all the fans 8 years old or less due to his cute & harmless generic appearance.

The short legacy of Scorch will survive the annals of time while Dash will just be another long forgotten stuffie tossed back into the toy box.

The home stand continues tomorrow night against the Rochester Americans.

What is it with the Canucks organization. We can't even beat their farm team, even when they massively out play them. The game was very similar to the Hawks game early in the season that the Flames won.

After consistently losing to Utica, the Flames will have to keep winning against all others to keep pace with them.

Looking for Adirondack to get a win today and leave the substandard results seen during the holiday season behind.

Today's opponent, the Buffalo Sabres affiliate, has split the season series so far 3-3. Let's make it 4-3 for ADK!
