Matthew Tkachuk cemented Calgary’s victory over San Jose with a between-the-legs, highlight-reel goal on Monday, giving him seven (four goals, three assists) of his team high-tying 45 points in his last seven games.
Milan Lucic has enjoyed an offensive surge with five points (two goals, three assists) to begin this road trip after mustering just one in his previous 11 games.
Elias Lindholm has turned it on following the All-Star break, extending his point streak to seven games (two goals, five assists) after setting up a goal in each of his last four contests.
While the 25-year-old Swede leads the team in goals (22) and his 43 points are two shy of Tkachuk and Johnny Gaudreau for top honors on the club, Lindholm has yet to dent the scoresheet in three meetings with the Kings
Mikael Backlund has recorded back-to-back multi-point performances to give him five points in his last three games after mustering just two assists in his previous eight.
Flames G David Rittich owns a 13-8-2 mark on the road this season.
David Rittich should be the starting goalie in the game tonight. His stats up to this point on the season are: 22-14-5 W-L | 2.83 GAA | 0.91 SV% | 2 SO
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles captain Anze Kopitar has four points (two goals, two assists) against Calgary this season.
While cellar-dwelling Los Angeles has scored a league second-worst 2.40 goals per game, it has seen its offense catch fire to win two of the three encounters with the Flames.
Defenseman Drew Doughty has recorded five points (two goals, three assists) in the those contests, including a three-point effort on Oct. 8 that was capped with a goal 50 seconds into overtime of a 4-3 win.
Jeff Carter collected a goal and an assist in the Kings’ 4-1 triumph over the Flames 10 days later, although the 35-year-old has slowed considerably and been held off the scoresheet in 14 of his last 17 games.

Free Calgary Flames vs. Los Angeles Kings NHL Prediction:
This should be an exciting and spirited affair. I for one cannot wait for the puck to be dropped for this game. I see the Flames taking it, but it’s a little worrisome bet because of the low payout. I really like the under.
