Goalie Miikka Kiprusoff and the Flames are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time in the post-lockout era.

With the clock ticking on the NHL's regular season, the playoff race in the Western Conference is coming down to the wire.

The Calgary Flames are in the hunt for one of the last spots, but Team Sutter has its work cut out trying to catch the resurgent Detroit Red Wings and the surprising Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche.

Will the Flames make the playoffs for the sixth straight season? If they do, how deep can they go? If they don't, what changes must be made this summer?
