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.
