Resurgent Flames, banged-up Avs look to extend streaks

Two teams dealing with adversity have gotten on a roll and will meet up in Denver on Monday night, so something has to give.

The Calgary Flames have overcome the resignation of embattled head coach Bill Peters to win four straight and start their climb in the Pacific Division. The Colorado Avalanche have been hit with significant injuries all season yet are still sit near the top of the Central Division after winning six in a row, including the last three on the road.

That's the backdrop for the third game of the season between the teams. The Flames are coming off a chippy 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night that kept the team perfect under interim head coach Geoff Ward.
