Hockey Wilderness: Gamethread: Wild @ Calgary
It's another late night Wild fans. The first of a back-to-back for the Wild as after tonight they will head to Edmonton. However, first things first. After finally getting back on track Tuesday night in Vancouver the Wild will have a tough task tonight in trying to slow down one of the league's best goal scoring teams. The Flames offense is 3rd in the NHL, and they also average a league best 4.31 goals for at home. Alex Stalock who makes his first start since that wild win over Winnipeg will have to be sharp all night.
Matchsticks and Gasoline: Minnesota Wild at Calgary Flames [Game 29]
The Calgary Flames are back home as they take on the Minnesota Wild. The Flames won their last game by a score of 9-6 and have more five goal periods than the rest of the league combined. They'll look to keep that offense rolling tonight with hopefully a bit more defense.
Ryan Lomberg is in tonight for Austin Czarnik. Czarnik scored in the last game and looked good otherwise. This is starting to become nothing more than favouritism towards a player who consistently yields negative results on the ice and it's starting to become a bit concerning.

Calgary Flames (73% consensus). Coming off their biggest offensive eruption in nearly eight years, the surging Calgary Flames take aim at the fourth consecutive victory when they host the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. The Pacific Division-leading Flames are riding a five-game point streak (4-0-1) and capped off their latest victory with a nine-goal eruption in a victory at Columbus... http://bit.ly/2B2oZgE

Matchsticks and Gasoline: Preview: Calgary Flames vs Minnesota Wild 12/6/18 (29/82): Flames Surging Power Play Meets #4 PK In Wild
Radio: Sportsnet 960<strong>Calgary Flames 17-9-2 (36 pts) - Minnesota Wild 15-10-2 (32 pts)</strong>
The Flames return home with a 3 game winning streak (8 of their last 9), capped off by a bizarre 9-6 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Tuesday night. Calgary's offence is clicking right now and it couldn't come at a better time. The Flames competition this week is much stiffer than the previous one and if they're going to make it through this week, goals will be in order. The 9 pucks they put past Columbus gave the Flames 100 goals on the season, one of 5 teams to reach that plateau so far in 2018-19.
