The Calgary Flames are currently on the Western Conference playoff bubble, but they’ll need to scratch and claw to stay in the mix without their third highest scorer until March.

Curtis Glencross‘ MCL injury will keep him out at least six weeks, according to Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald.

The winger has 33 points in 45 games, ranking him behind Olli Jokinen (36) and Jarome Iginla (38) for Calgary’s team lead. Glencross is also tied with Iginla for first place among Flames with 18 goals, a mark he reached by connecting on 24 percent of his shots.

On a personal note, losing Glencross also leaves a gaping void in the cringe-inducing pun nickname department, as there’s really only one “Glengarry Glencross.”

    Calgary is struggling hardcore. They will most definitely need a trade to stay in competition for a playoff spot.
    I cant believe Calgary is keeping Brent Sutter … how long can he last?

    Could this be the final nail in the coffin for the Flames playoff hopes?
