The Flames look to snap out of their losing ways as they head into the desert to battle the Arizona Coyotes on Friday night.
The Flames have had a tough start to the year as thy were projected to be right in the hunt for the Pacific division title and while they could very well turn things around they sit 10 points back of the Kings for that honour heading into tonight’s action. Calgary’s biggest problem has been keeping pucks out of the bet as they have been dreadful in their own end this season as they have a league worst which is a whopping 37 more than the league low of 43 conceded by the Rangers in what is a very large disparity between top and bottom especially considering we have only played 23 games. Karri Ramo will get the call as he will go up against Mike Smith.

The Coyotes have had a pretty solid start to the year and while they have faded away a little bit over the last two weeks they still sit in fourth in the division and are two games above .500. The Coyotes actually look a lot like the Flames of last year as they are a team supposedly in a rebuild but their youngsters are performing well above expectations right now and as such they are in the hunt for a playoff spot. Calgary seems to have regressed this year and while Arizona may fall short of reaching the playoffs they will be an exciting group to watch this year and with all things considered I am siding with the home team.
