The Vancouver Canucks are facing another Canadian team in this game. However, the game will be one that is definitely going to be very interesting for the team. The Canucks ended up controlling most of the game against the Oilers when the season opened up. The problem is the Canucks were unable to have some problems in getting the offense contained that the Oilers were able to bring to the game.

Alexander Edler is the points leader for the Vancouver team on the year with a single point and a goal. Tanner Pearson was able to lead the Canucks with a goal as well. When it came to assist the Canucks managed to rely on J.T. Miller who got an assist in the game.

The Flames offense was able to show up decent in the game against the Avalanche. The problem for the Flames was the fact that the defense was unable to really show up in the game as they allowed the Avalanche to get a total of five goals. That is definitely going to be a major issue for the Flames as the defense was unable to really slow down the offense of the Avs and the Avs are not noted as a major offensive team.

The one player that the Flames were able to rely on is the same one that a lot of the fans would recognize from last year. That is Johnny Gaudreau who has a total of 2 points and leads the Flames. He did manage to get a goal and an assist on the year, but what is impressive is his shooting was at 50% conversion rate.

Calgary Flames -182

The Canucks team was not really able to close out the game against the Oilers and the defense was the fault as they had quite a few turnovers. The good news is the puck mainly stayed in neutral ice in the games so far and that is going to be the case here in the game. What becomes a major difference is the fact that the Flames have a better talent in Gaudreau who can really end up winning the game. Final Score Prediction, Calgary Flames win 3-1.
