Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames are finally on the winning track. The team was on the verge of dropping their third straight game of the season, but members of the squad had other things in mind. Facing the Capitals on the road, the Flames are forced to stick to the positives, one of which is the fact that winning is not elusive for them anymore. Although still tagged as underdogs, Calgary is liking its chances. Confidence should not be an issue, especially after keeping their last opponent scoreless in their last game. The win came at the heels of a shaky season opener and a second-game meltdown. This game is about to show whether the Flames will be able to sustain their charge.  

Players to watch: J. Gaudreau LW (G 0, A 4, PTS 4), E. Lindholm C (G 3, A 0, PTS 3), D. Dube C (G 0, A 2, PTS 2).

Washington Capitals

Define unstoppable. The Washington Capitals have been running roughshod to begin their campaign, and it has sent shockwaves to the rest of the NHL. The team is unscathed after three games, with all results known just in regulation. It’s a collective effort from all members of the group. With roles defined and organized, Washington has shown that an absolute team game could easily defeat every opposition that heavily relies on individual talents. The Capitals’ attention to detail has yielded quick dividends and the squad is expected to keep the same discipline when they host the Flames on Saturday.

Players to watch: A. Ovechkin LW (G 4, A 4, PTS 8), E. Kuznetsov C (G 3, A 5, PTS 8), T. Wilson RW (G 0, A 5, PTS 5).
