Calgary Flames vs. Nashville Predators: Flamin’ Hot Hockey

One of the best teams in the last month, the Calgary Flames arrive in a battle of similarly situated playoff hopefuls. The Nashville Predators continue their home stand as the Calgary Flames visit Bridgestone Arena tonight. The Flames, one of the best teams in this latter half of the season, were below the Predators in the standings the last time these two teams met. Now they have 86 points to Nashville’s 83. The Predators have been playing well as of late, but that hasn’t necessarily manifested in wins. After playing well over a grueling slate of road games against teams like...

Canucks at Blues preview: No Stastny? No Lehtera? No problem?

The Blues are down two of their centers. Will it be an issue against the Canucks? Paul Stastny fell victim to a Vladimir Tarasenko shot Tuesday night.

Here: Forwards Jaden Schwartz - Alexander Steen - Vladimir Tarasenko Zach Sanford - Patrik Berglund - David Perron Magnus Paajarvi - Ivan Barbashev - Nail...

Winnipeg Jets vs Los Angeles Kings

Check out or check mate? Tuesday night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers proved to be kind of a test for the Winnipeg Jets. Philly scored first early in the first period, but the Jets made a game of it and came back to score 3 goals, leading to a 3-2 win. Both teams had a lot in common going into that matchup...both had higher expectations than what the results were showing, as both clubs are outside of their respective playoff scenarios. Today’s opponents are the Los Angeles Kings, who, you could say, are the Flyers’ pacific doppelgangers, as they too are on the other side of...
