Calgary Needs To Stay Out Of The Box

You'd think it is Calgary's turn to win tonight.  Edmonton evened the series at 1-1 in the lsst game but I see the Flames winning tonight in Edmonton  I am sure there is a lot of money flowing at Betway tonight.

TSN feels if the Flames stay out of the penalty box, they should be in good shape.

As the Calgary Flames head north to Edmonton for Game 3 of their series against the Oilers, Darryl Sutter’s group is focused on staying out of the penalty box.

At their even-strength best, the Flames can dominate teams for shifts or even periods at a time. They led the league in 5-on-5 goal differential and there have been glimpses of that in the postseason, however they haven’t spent as much time at 5-on-5 as they would like.

So far, the Flames have played the second-most minutes of any playoff team on the penalty kill, while their 5-on-5 time is among the lowest. During the Dallas series, Sutter spoke to the officiating supervisor about the amount of coincidental penalties and 4-on-4 play.


Unless Connor McDavid continues his torrid scoring pace and Mike Smith stands on his head, this game should go to the Flames.

Although the crowd in Edmonton will be at a frenzy at puck drop, I expect Calgary doming out strong and silencing the Edmnton fans.

No matter the outcome, this game is much watch TV, just to see McDavid's play.  He's even bringing me out of my seat.
