The Calgary Flames and the Tampa Bay Lightning meet in NHL action from the Amalie Arena on Thursday night.
The Calgary Flames will look to build on their 6-5 win over Los Angeles in their last game. Nazem Kadri has a team-high 14 points with a team-high 7 goals and 7 assists while Rasmus Andersson has 13 points with a team-high 12 assists. Tyler Toffoli and Elias Lindholm also have 13 points apiece with 6 goals and 7 assists each on the year. Jacob Markstrom’s gone 6-3-2 with a 3.06 GAA and an .889 save percentage while Dan Vladar is 1-3 with a 3.33 GAA and an .881 save percentage between the pipes for Calgary this season.
The Tampa Bay Lightning will hope to build on a 5-4 OT win over Dallas last time out. Nikita Kucherov leads the Lightning with 23 points including a team-high 16 assists while Steven Stamkos has 17 points with a team-high 8 goals on the year. Brayden Point also has 16 points with 6 goals and 10 assists this season. Andrei Vasilevskiy is 5-5-1 with a 3.10 GAA and an .898 save percentage while Brian Elliott is 4-1 with a 3.37 GAA and a .891 save percentage so far between the pipes for Tampa Bay.
Calgary is 1-6 in their last 7 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games against the Eastern Conference while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Atlantic division. Tampa Bay is 36-15 in their last 51 home games and 39-14 in their last 53 games against the Pacific division while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games following a win.
I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, even though the Flames got a couple of wins here and there, I’m still done with the Flames as the goaltending is questionable and I’m just really not a fan of this team, especially against Tampa Bay on the other side. I think the Lightning take it to the Flames here so give me the Bolts.
