At first glance, Saturday’s game between the Flames and Sharks would seem to be a trap for the visiting Flames. Despite being 1-4 so far on the season, San Jose is a much better team than its record indicates and they play much better at home.
Calgary comes into San Jose after a close battle with Dallas, winning 3-2 in a SO. Having played 4 games so far, they have scored 3 goals in each of those games.
Milan Lucic is currently out with an injury, other than that, they are fully healthy. Keith Tkachuk and Johnny Gaudreau lead the way for the Flames offensively, but after that, it becomes quite thin for an offensive punch.
Flames goaltender David Rittich has played all 4 games this season and has a respectable save% of .929 and GAG of 2.46
San Jose Sharks
San Jose is coming off a 5-4 road victory in Chicago, it was their first victory of the season. Aaron Dell got the win between the pipes and the return of Patrick Marleau gave the team some needed energy scoring 2 goals in that game.
Brent Burns and Logan Couture lead the way for the Sharks with 5 and 4 points respectfully. The return of Evander Kane provides more depth and scoring punch and the signing of Marleau adds needed energy to a team that was rather flat out of the gates.
Paramount for the Sharks is getting consistent goaltending from either Aaron Dell or Martin Jones. They have combined for a total of 21 goals against in 5 games, Aaron Dell being the better of the two.

Free Calgary Flames vs. San Jose Sharks NHL Prediction:
This is a tough one to call mostly because both of these offenses are struggling. San Jose did score 5 goals its last time out but managed only 5 goals in its previous 4 games.
This will be a back to back game for Calgary and probably has a little less gas in the tank. San Jose historically plays better at home.
