The two fading teams in the West face-off tonight as the Flames host the Colorado Avalanche in their sixth and final meeting of the season. Once both in the heat of the battle for the 8th and final playoff spot, both teams have lost their games in recent stretches are now running out of chances to make up any ground. The Flames after another lackluster performance on Wednesday against the Kings have gone 1-3-3 in their last seven, while the Aves, who also only have 3 games remaining, have gone 0-3-1 in their last four games. This will be the sixth and final meeting between the clubs as Colorado has just one win against the Flames this year, coming in their last meeting, a 2-1 OT victory on Mar. 20th.
