Flames, Wild aim to continue ascent at other's expense

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Calgary Flames coach Glen Gulutzan has heard the notion that the NHL teams in playoff position on (American) Thanksgiving are generally the ones that make the playoffs five months later.

With two wins in a row under his belt to move his team back into a playoff position, Gulutzan likes the direction the Flames are headed even with more than half of the season to go.

Still, after winning in overtime in Montreal and getting a 4-2 home victory versus the Vancouver Canucks in their last outing, Gulutzan knows there's little breathing room for the Flames (16-12-2) with the standings changing every day.
