The Flames look to snap out of their funk as they head into San Jose on Saturday night to do battle with the Sharks.
The Calgary Flames dropped yet another road game last night dropping in overtime to the Arizona Coyotes but have a chance at redemption tonight as they battle the Sharks in San Jose. Calgary hasn’t had the start many expected they would have as their Cinderella run to the playoffs last season resulted in huge expectations this season but an 8-13-2 mark through their first 23 contests and they sit seven points back of the Coyotes for the third and final automatic berth from the Pacific division.
The Sharks meanwhile sit in second place in the division and have gone on a tear of late winning seven of their last 10 contests and have looked pretty good for the most part this year. San Jose is a tough team to figure out as they look playoff bound this year despite being in a position to rebuild but in a division where no one seems to be able to run away with things right now they are very much in the mix and could shift their focus towards a deep playoff run. The Sharks continue to be a very streak bunch though and while I think they are the better group I like the Flames to rebound and get the victory here.
