Two of the hottest offenses in the Pacific Division square off in Anaheim as the Flames look to steal a win on the road against the NHL’s hottest team.
Despite scoring the second-most goals in the Pacific Division, the Calgary Flames find themselves near the bottom of the division thanks to a season filled with goaltending woes.
Led by All-Star forward Johnny Gaudreau and his team-high 56 points, the Flames enter this contest tied for 9th in goals with 2.74 per game and 8th in shooting percentage.
But it’s been the defense that has really hamstrung this team since the beginning, and goaltender Jonas Hiller has been worse than Karri Ramo will now miss the rest of the regular season.
Hiller has a 9-7-1 record but a GAA of 3.2 and a save percentage of .889. Calgary’s 3.04 goals per game allowed ranks 27th in the NHL and the team is dead last on the penalty kill despite being 4th in the league in penalty minutes.
The Flames have averaged 3.5 goals per game since the All-Star Break, but they’ve also allowed 3.2 goals per game over that same span.
After an abysmal start to the season, the Ducks find themselves within striking distance of the L.A. Kings for first place in the Pacific.
It was the Ducks’ offense that couldn’t get anything going for most of the season, but that’s all seemed to change.
Anaheim is averaging 4 goals per game since returning from the All-Star Break and has scored 16 goals over its last three games.
With All-Star goalie John Gibson leading them between the pipes, the Ducks’ defense is 7th in goals allowed, 3rd in shots on goal and 3rd on the penalty kill.
On the other hand, Anaheim ranks 9th on the power play which sets up nicely against a Calgary team that ranks dead last on the penalty kill.

Both of these teams are scoring plenty of goals at the moment, but the Flames can’t stop the puck to save their lives. I can see the Ducks scoring five or six goals on their own.

Anaheim’s offense is red hot and Calgary has a top-10 offense of its own. The two teams combined for 10 goals in their Feb. 15 matchup in Calgary, so there’s no reason to think this one won’t be another scorefest.
