First off, I will have the Score Predicting Wizards List updated within a few hours and post the results in the comments section.

Secondly, I have not watched a Canucks game in over a week. I see I have been missing a hell of a show. Bitz has 3 points in his last 2 games playing with the Sedins? The Sedins each have 3 points in their last 2 games playing with Bitz? Ryan Kesler has 5 goals in 5 consecutive games? Well dang! Let's get it on!

The Flames have gotten at least a point in 4 straight games. They are still out of a playoff spot by 2 points. Big game for them.
