Neither the Calgary Flames nor the Vancouver Canucks played on Friday however they will go head to head on Saturday night as Hockey Night in Canada heads to the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Should Vancouver take down a victory they would sweep a five game road trip with impressive wins at Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix, San Jose, and, pending tonight's result, Calgary.

The Flames are also a team on impressive form recently as they have gone 6-3-1 in their last 10 efforts.

Arguably the game is more important to Calgary as Vancouver enjoy a pretty comfortable lead in the NHL's overall standings. 

Entering Saturday's action Vancouver are seven points up on Philadelphia and while the Canucks can still be caught for top spot, with less than 15 games to go in many team schedules a seven point lead is reasonably safe.

Calgary enter Saturday in 8th place in the Western Conference and they are a part of the cluster of teams in the playoff hunt in the west, teams that cannot afford to suffer many losses. 

Calgary can hope to finish 4th this season in the standings but if they go cold then they could be right out of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs as they only have a two point lead over 9th place Anaheim.

In their previous four meetings this season the Flames have only mustered up one win and in their only meeting from Calgary, the Canucks crushed Calgary 7-2.

Saturday's game will have television coverage with CBC and it will come from the Scotiabank Saddledome at 10pm ET (7pm PT; 8pm MT).
