Calgary Flames

Thursday’s visit to Seattle will be Calgary’s first game in 19 days, no thanks to the emergency league break due to the COVID outbreak. A total of seven games have been postponed since the Flames’ 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins, making it a challenge for the team to find their groove in their return to the ice. But the members of the squad are staying positive, saying that the break also allowed them to have a much-needed rest. The team will be at full strength in their first game back; hence, they should have the advantage against a still shorthanded Kraken, who were coming off a loss. 

Players to watch: J. Gaudreau LW (G 9, A 16, PTS 25), E. Lindholm C (G 9, A 14, PTS 2), M. Tkachuk LW (G 10, A 9, PTS 19).

Seattle Kraken

The Kraken returned to action on Wednesday, but it did not end the way they wanted to. Seattle suffered a heartbreaking OT loss to the Flyers at home, adding even more misery to what has been a nightmare of a season for the team. The squad will have to shake off the loss, however, as they are about to play the Flames next. Still depleted due to players out due to health and safety protocols, Seattle has no other choice but play through and move forward. At this time of the season, it is all about playing with pride despite the unfavorable results. 

Players to watch: J. Eberle RW (G 11, A 5, PTS 16), J. Schwartz LW (G 4, A 12, PTS 16), J. McCann C (G 8, A 4, PTS 12
