The Calgary Flames travel to Colorado to take on the Avalanche on Saturday night. This is the first teams these teams face off on the current season.
The Flames 17-13 on the road and have a 32-14-7 record ranking first in the Pacific division. They're coming from a loss against the Canadiens 4-5 in overtime. “Penalties, turnovers, cost you hockey games,” Flames coach Darryl Sutter said.
Johnny Gaudreau leads the Flames with 68 pts, 21 goals and 47 assists. Andrew Mangiapane leads the team in goals with 29 in the season.
In their last 10 games the Flames are 8-2, averaging 4.4 goals, eight assists, four penalties and 11 penalty minutes while allowing 2.6 goals per game with a .922 save percentage.
Colorado are 23-5 at home so far this season and have 40-11-4 overall record ranking first in the Central. After winning 4th straight games the Avs lost against the Coyotes 2-1 in their last game.
Gabriel Landeskog leads the Avalanche with 29 goals and has 46 assists. Nazem Kadri leads in points with 68 for Colorado.
The Avalanche are 7-3 in their last 10 games, averaging 3.3 goals, 5.5 assists, 2.7 penalties and 5.8 penalty minutes while giving up 2.4 goals per game with a .922 save percentage.
Calgary are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games.
Calgary are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Colorado.
Colorado are 16-4 SU in their last 20 games.
Colorado are 18-2 SU in their last 20 games at home.
The Avs is a tough team to beat at home they have lost only 5 games at home this season and 2 of their last 20. This should be a close game as the Flames are a great team as well and have won 12 of heir last 14 games but I can't go against the Avalanche at home.
