Flames: They have won eight of their last 11 games and are com­ing off a 4-1 tri­umph Fri­day at Van­cou­ver. … For­ward Troy Brouwer suf­fered an up­per­body in­jury in the first pe­riod against the Canucks and did not re­turn. … Strug­gling goalie Brian El­liott, who is in his first sea­son with the Flames, got the win at Van­cou­ver — just his sec­ond since Oct. 28. He has started four of the past 20 games for Cal­gary. … The Flames have had more suc­cess on the road (10-7-2) than at home (8-9-0). Avalanche: Like all NHL teams, the Avs are com­ing off a manda­tory three-day Christ­mas break. They will have a morn­ing skate Tues­day, their first on-ice ac­tiv­ity since Fri­day’s 2-1 over­time win at Chicago. … Colorado is 3-7 in its last 10 games, and is on an eight-game los­ing streak (0-7-1) at home. … Goalie Jeremy Smith was re­called Mon­day from San An­to­nio of the AHL and will pre­sum­ably back up Calvin Pickard against the Flames. The Avs re­called Smith be­cause Se­myon Var­lamov is out (groin in­jury). Mike Cham­bers, The Den­ver Post
