Flames look to keep rolling vs. Wild

Minnesota (30-24-5) at Calgary (36-18-6), 9:00 pm EST

CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames will aim for

their fourth consecutive win when they host the Minnesota Wild

on Friday in a battle of Northwest Division foes.

The Flames have gone 6-0-2 over their last eight contests

following a four-game losing streak. Captain Jarome Iginla

scored two goals and set up two others during Tuesday's 4-1

triumph over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Calgary has opened up a 10-point advantage in the division

standings. The Wild, who have lost all three meetings with the

Flames this season by one goal, are 13 points back in third.

Minnesota, which is starting a six-game road swing, is coming

off a 2-1 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.

Antti Miettinen netted a shorthanded goal in that one.

The Wild have not won at Pengrowth Saddledome since March 17,

2007, losing five straight in Calgary over that stretch.

Over their season-long trip, Minnesota will play its first three

contests in Western Canada before making three stops in

California.
