The Calgary flames and Colorado Avalanche both need a win Friday night if they hope to have any chance of making the playoffs.

The Flames are three points back of 8th place Los Angeles in the NHL's Western Conference while the Av's are just two back.

The Av's beat the Flames 2-1 in overtime last week but otherwise the Flames have dominated the series this year winning the first four games.

The puck drops at 7 o'clock at the Dome.
