Last 10: Chicago 6-3-1; Calgary 7-1-2
Season series: Third of four meetings this season, with the home team prevailing in each of the first two. Jarome Iginla recorded the hat trick in leading Calgary to a 7-2 win on Nov. 19, while Dave Bolland scored a pair of power-play goals on Dec. 5 as Chicago claimed a 4-2 victory.
Big story: It would have been hard to fathom only a couple weeks ago, but the Flames have passed the defending Stanley Cup champions in the standings, coming into play Monday one point ahead of the Blackhawks. Both teams are chasing the top eight in the Western Conference, however, with Calgary one point behind Los Angeles for the last playoff spot and Chicago two back.
Blackhawks: While Chicago has been winning its fair share of games lately, so have most of the teams the Blackhawks are battling with for a postseason berth. They came up just a bit short against the West-leading Canucks on Friday, firing 45 shots on Roberto Luongo and connecting three times, but after Bolland gave them a one-goal lead 7:47 into the third period the home team answered on tallies by the Sedin twins -- first Henrik, then Daniel with four minutes to play -- and handed the Hawks a 4-3 setback.
