Flames, Canucks begin three-game set to finish season

While the remaining active NHL teams are competing in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks are closing out their seasons with little on the line.

Sunday's clash in Vancouver will kick off three consecutive meetings between the Flames (24-26-3, 51 points) and Canucks (22-28-3, 47 points) as the clubs close out disappointing regular seasons. The rivals also will play Tuesday in Vancouver before their finale Wednesday afternoon in Calgary. The Flames have won five of seven previous clashes, including a 4-1 affair on Thursday.

The trio of remaining contests -- delayed because of the Canucks' earlier COVID-19 outbreak -- will count in the standings, of course, but the Flames will use them to evaluate a handful of young players in their system. Forwards Adam Ruzicka, Matthew Phillips and Luke Philp and defenseman Alexander Yelesin enjoyed strong seasons with the American Hockey League's Stockton Heat.
