Calgary has gained momentum
After beating Columbus in the previous home game, the Flames won their 7th victory in a row. Darryl Sutter's team had a slump at a certain point and finally got back on track. The climb up the standings does not appear to be long in coming. Calgary is sixth in the East so far, but is ahead of both Vegas and Nashville, the fifth and fourth teams in the conference, in points lost.
Anaheim struggles to stay in the playoff zone
It remains to be seen whether the Ducks will be able to maintain their position in the postseason. On the one hand, the competition in the Western Conference is not as strong as in the East. On the other hand, the Ducks seem to get more and more bogged down the further the championship goes. Anaheim still lacks experience. No matter how the season ends, though, it's worth noting that Dallas Eakins' team has made tremendous progress this season.
In the previous game, Anaheim failed to cope with Seattle, 3-4, at home. The result of this match should not be overestimated, though, as it was the first game for the Ducks after a pause for the All-Star Game. Overall, the Ducks have 23 wins in 49 games. The Californians are eighth in the Western Conference.

- Anaheim: Max Jones, Ryan Kesler, Josh Manson will not play.
The rivals have met twice this season. Both games ended in away victories outside of regular time. Anaheim won in October, and Calgary won in December.
Expert Betting Tips
In the last 6 games, Calgary scored at least 4 pucks against their opponents. Not even the back-to-back goals prevented this from happening. If one of them was not very difficult (Dallas-Arizona), winning both games in the main time in the second (Vegas-Toronto) is a real feat. Destroying Anaheim the day after Columbus hardly seems impossible for Calgary. All the more reason to have Jacob Markström in goal for the Flames. His replacement, Daniel Vladar, played against Columbus.
Prediction: Calgary will be close to win the 8th match in a row.
