The Calgary lineup looks like it may not be correct, FYI. This is the line-up I have as of now, but the flames recalled seven players and they are not reflected in this line-up.

5 Questions

1. If the Wild win this game, they are 2pts closer to clinching a playoff berth for the first time since 2008. Do they look like a playoff team tonight?

2.Lots of eyes will be on Niklas Backstrom tonight, After being pulled, he has gone 21-2-4 in his next outing. Does he add win number 22 to his stats?

3. Even though he is on the other team, Ben Hanowski is a looking boy, and playing for the first time in his professional career in his hometown. How does he look?

4. The Flames have already been eliminated from the playoffs and have nothing to lose. While they aren't know to be a dirty team (Oh hi there Oilers), do they make any cheap shots or try any crazy antics?

5.Does Ryan Suter have another 30 minute game tonight?
