It starts Thursday night in Toronto with a date versus the Maple Leafs with two important points on the line.
“Tonight, I think the emotion will be there,” Sean Monahan said. “You look at the standings right now, and this is an important game for our team.”
A glance at the Pacific Division shows just three points separating first place and fifth.
“Gosh, what a race this is,” Matthew Tkachuk offered. “A bunch of teams are right there. These two points are so, so crucial for us.”
The Flames are looking to get back into the win column after being shutout in Montreal on Monday.
