The NHL brings more action tonight with the clash between the Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks attracting the attention of the fans in North America.
Calgary was in action on the road Saturday night as were beaten by Golden Knights by a score of 6-2. San Jose earned a 5-4 victory over Chicago on the road Thursday night in their last NHL game.
Calgary Flames Form
The Flames suffered a defeat in their last game which was against the Golden Knights. Also, it seems that Calgary lacked defensive stability and that cost them the game. At the moment, the Flames are placed on the 4th spot in the Pacific Division with 2 wins in their 5 opening games of the NHL season. But Elias Lindholm, Mikael Backlund and Matthew Tkachuk are showing some good sings. Therefore, there is more to come from this team.
On the offensive side of the game, the Flames score an average of 2.75 goals per game on the year. Also, the Flames are tied for 12th in the league in goals-against as they concede an average of 2.75 goals per contest.
San Jose Sharks Form
San Jose managed to get their first win this season and that was not easy. Moreover, they had to work hard in order to defeat Chicago away. However, the news of the week for them is that they added Patrick Marleau with the hope that he can help the team to turn the tide this season. However, it seems that they will need to fix their defensive line. They have been conceding a lot lately and the game against Chicago showed that weakness.
On the offensive side of the game, Sharks is 28th in goals for in the early going as they average 2.00 goals per contest. Also, the Sharks are 25th in goals against as they are allowing 4.20 goals per game this season.
The Flames have looked like the better of the two teams through the first few games of the season. Even with this one being on the road, I think Calgary has enough firepower to take the win here, especially with SJ goalie Martin Jones playing as poorly as he has been. Go with Calgary.
