The game here will be one that the Flames should have an easier time on the defensive side of the puck. Look for the Flames defense to keep the Ducks offense in check, which is fairly easy to do and that will lead to the Flames getting more offensive time and bring home the win as the Ducks defense cracks in the game. Final Score Prediction, Calgary Flames win 4-2.
