The NHL is finally back!
The NHL season kicks off on Wednesday night with four games. This game features two teams who hope to be fighting for the Stanley Cup again this year.
The Calgary Flames make the trip to Edmonton to take on the Oilers. The Oilers have won the last four games played between the two teams.
After a first round exit last year, the Calgary Flames made a lot of changes to improve their team.
The biggest move was acquiring Mike Smith from the Arizona Coyotes who should really help this teams struggles they had in net last year at times.
The other big strength for this team is on the Blue Line. They almost have too much talent on the defensive end, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a trade at some point to get more offensive power.
To win this game for the Flames they are going to have to be good on the defensive end, and they need to be really fast.
The Oilers have a lot of young guys that can score and the defense really needs to be the main focus in this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Edmonton Oilers who come into this game with a lot of confidence after winning their first playoff series in 11 years last year.
For the Oilers it starts and end with one guy, Connor McDavid. He is the star of this team, and pretty soon will probably be the star of this whole league.
To win this game it’s all going to be about the attack. They need to try and find some holes in the tough Blues defense and hope to put a couple in the back of the net.
