Calgary Flames

The Flames have caught fire and there is no indication that the team is stopping anytime soon. Making the feat more impressive is the fact that Calgary did it on the road, and that a win against the Penguins on Thursday would make it five in a row away from home. In the current winning streak, the Flames have outscored the opposition 17-7 overall while not surrendering any goal advantage. Andrew Mangiapane and Elias Lindholm, two of the team’s top goal scorers, have been lording it over on the offensive end. The scoring duo is once again expected to do damage in Pittsburgh. With the rest of the squad sticking to their respective roles, the Flames are definitely hard to stop. 

Players to watch: J. Gaudreau LW (G 0, A 8, PTS 8), E. Lindholm C (G 7, A 1, PTS 8), A. Mangiapane LW (G 7, A 0, PTS 7).

Pittsburgh Penguins

It has been a tough start for the Penguins this season. With most of its core sidelined due to individual health issues, Pittsburgh had to battle through with a depleted lineup. As a result, the team has found itself at a relatively dismal position to begin their campaign, winning only three of its first six games. On a positive note, however, things could flip in favor of the Penguins with star captain Sidney Crosby reportedly ready to suit up in time for their game against the Flames on Thursday. Almost two months after going under the knife due to a wrist injury, Crosby is now said to be ready to be back in action to help his squad establish a much-needed winning run.

Players to watch: D. O’Connor LW (G 3, A 2, PTS 5), E. Rodrigues C (G 3, A 2, PTS 5), D. Heinen C (G 3, A 2, PTS 5).
