(SportsNetwork. Matt Milano Womens Jersey .com) - The Calgary Flames are spoilers once again. With losses in three straight and seven of their last 10 games, the Nashville Predators have seriously damaged their already slim playoff chances. The Predators hope to boost their fading postseason hopes when they visit the Flames for Fridays clash at the Saddledome. Calgary is one of only two teams behind the Predators in the Western Conference standings. With only 12 games left in its regular-season schedule, Nashville is 11 points behind Phoenix for the last wild card berth in the West. The Flames, who trail Nashville by five points in the standings, can win the season series against the Preds on Friday. Nashville earned a 4-2 home win on Jan. 14, but Calgary responded 10 days later with a 5-4 shootout victory at the Saddledome. Nashville has won six of nine in the series overall, but the Flames have claimed three straight and five of the last six encounters in Calgary. Although the Flames are headed for a fifth straight year out of the playoffs, the club has played solid hockey of late, picking up their third win in four games with Tuesdays home victory over Buffalo. Mike Cammalleri and Paul Byron scored in the third period to help the Flames earn the 3-1 decision, while Calgarys Joni Ortio, in his eighth NHL start, outdueled Buffalos Nathan Lieuwen. Ortio gave up one goal on four shots in the first period -- Drew Staffords wraparound after a Calgary turnover behind the net -- and only needed to record 13 saves for the win. Joe Colborne scored the other goal for the Flames in the second period. "The boys regrouped between the first and second and we skated so much better. We saw our team working and making great plays," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. The win pushed Calgarys record on home ice this season to 16-16-3. The Flames will visit Edmonton on Saturday before returning to the Saddledome for a three-game homestand against San Jose, Anaheim and the New York Rangers. With an average of 2.34 goals per game, the Predators offence has been a sore spot for the club all season long. The problem has been magnified of late, as Nashville has been held to one goal or less in seven of its past 10 games. The Preds have notched a total of two goals during their current three-game slide and the club was shut out Wednesday night in Vancouver, dropping a 2-0 decision against the Canucks. That setback came one day after Nashville opened a four-game road trip with a 5-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers, the bottom team in the Western Conference. Rookie goaltender Eddie Lack of the Canucks made 30 saves to frustrate the Predators on Wednesday. Nashville failed to score despite having four power- play opportunities, including two in the third period. Carter Hutton turned aside 20-of-22 shots for the Predators to take a tough- luck loss. "Weve got to get some goals for our goaltender," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "Carter Hutton had a good game for us. We need some production from our forwards. Weve got virtually zero. If our defense arent scoring, were not scoring it seems like." Nashville lost forward Paul Gaustad to an upper-body injury on Wednesday and he expects to miss tonights contest. Gaustad has nine goals and seven assists in 70 games this season. The Preds recalled Calle Jarnkrok from the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL and the forward is set to make his NHL debut on Friday. Jarnkrok was acquired from Detroit before the trade deadline in the deal that sent David Legwand to the Red Wings. The 22-year-old Swede has compiled 43 points (18 goals, 25 assists) in 62 total AHL games with Milwaukee and the Grand Rapids Griffins this season. Nashville, which will complete its current swing this Sunday in Chicago, is 14-14-6 as the road team this season. Matt Milano Bills Jersey .Brooks, a three-year veteran, was slow to get up after suffering the injury during a 5-yard run by Arian Foster.Brooks limped off the field midway through the quarter and then slowly walked to the locker room a few minutes later. Andre Roberts Womens Jersey . Canada wasnt in the game from the outset. Head coach Dan Church left Calgary in the morning without addressing the players. He told The Canadian Press he felt the organization lacked confidence in his ability to defend the Olympic gold medal in February. http://www.authenticbillsfanaticfootball.com/authentic-cody-ford-bills-jersey/ . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line.There is no shortage of possible contenders this week as the Masters gets underway. Here are a few to keep your eye on and possibly include in your pool. Rory McIlroyDespite blowing up on the final nine in 2011, McIlroy showed he has the game to play at Augusta National. And, after a flat 2013 campaign, there are signs of life in his game this year that include a win in Australia at the end of last year and three top-10 finishes in five PGA Tour starts this year. Phil MickelsonNot many golfers have as impressive a record at Augusta National as Phil Mickelson who has only missed the top 10 three times since 1999. However one of those was last year and he also pulled an oblique muscle two weeks ago which forced him to withdraw from the Texas Open. The reigning British Open champion has won five majors in the last 10 years. Dustin JohnsonSupremely talented and enjoying a good season, Wayne Gretzkys future son-in-laws best finish at Augusta National is a tie for 13th, which came last year. This year, hes ranked second in Driving Distance and third in Greens In Regulation, and no one has made more birdies this year than DJ. Hes also a very good putter which will likely be his make-or-break club this week. Graeme McDowellAlthough hes missed the cut three of the last four times, McDowell has five top-10 finishes in his six starts this year and is leading the Strokes Gained – Putting category. Good putters do well at Augusta National and McDowell also knows how to play under pressure. And what Northern Irishman doesnt look good in green? Jason DayHes finished in the top three here in two of the last three years and is the fourth-ranked golfer in the world. Hes pronounced himself healthy from the thumb injury he sustained a few weeks back and he has a win already this year. Dawson Knox Jersey. If his putting stays sharp, he will have a chance to follow in the footsteps of compatriot Adam Scott. Graeme DeLaetAs we all know, first-timers havent fared well around here of late, but with more than a quarter of the field made up of those on their maiden voyage at the Masters, the odds have never been better. DeLaet has a game well-suited for Augusta National and hes arrived feeling healthy and excited, and playing some excellent golf. He wont have any trouble getting the ball to the green but its what happens once hes on those putting surfaces that will determine how he fares. Sergio GarciaAfter coming off this course and proclaiming that he would never win a major championship, Garcia has quietly become a legitimate pick around here again, thanks in large part to his improved putting. He seems to be an older, wiser player these days playing a much calmer game. However, a little of his old fire and passion wouldnt hurt him here this week. Adam ScottIts tough for a champion to defend at any major. Theres always so much attention and so many extra duties that throw the winner out of their regular routine. But Adam Scott seems prepared for that and has used his energy wisely this week. Still, theres probably a good reason why only three champs have ever followed up their victory with another win. Matt KucharHas anyone been more consistent this year than Matt Kuchar? Yes, he missed glorious opportunities to win the last couple of tournaments but the fact he was in the hunt speaks volumes about where his game is at. He has top-10 finishes both of the last two years around here and has played as well as anyone in the majors since 2010. He is due. ' ' '
