One team was expected to do well, the other has been surprising people, up until recently.
Now, both teams badly in need of some positive results. The Flames and the Golden Knights are slumping, losing against teams they should have beaten, when earlier they beat teams (especially Calgary) they perhaps, should have lost to.
On Sunday the Calgary Flames travel to Vegas to meet the Golden Knights for a Pacific Division battle.
This comes as Calgary has dropped three straight contests, including being blanked 3-0 recently at Arizona.
However, the Golden Knights are faring no better, mired in a five-game losing streak, their last loss a 4-3 setback to Los Angeles.
The Flames have had decent scoring across their top two lines, especially on their top line with left-winger Mathew Tkachuk, who leads the team with 10 goals and 20 points.
Why has Calgary’s on ice fortunes taken such a sudden downturn? Part of the problem is they really only get scoring from their top two lines, and teams are adjusting to Calgary’s limited depth at forward.
The other part of the problem appears to be goaltending, with Dave Rittich seemingly losing some confidence in net after a string of overtime games.
He however, is not helped by an inconsistent Calgary defense.
Las Vegas Golden Knights
Marc-Andre Fleury who was supposed to be a franchise player for Vegas is having just an ok season this year. At 2.68 goals per game that puts him at 11th among Western Conference goaltenders.
In one of their recent losses the Golden Knights gave up five goals to the less than stellar Chicago Blackhawks, losing 5-3.
Obviously they are going to have to step up their game if they want to stay in playoff contention.
Free Calgary Flames vs. Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL Prediction:
Obviously the Golden Knights were expected to be a strong playoff contender heading into the 2019/2020 season, and their early season play seemed to bear out those expectations.
So it’s hard to explain this early season slump.
Calgary on the other hand was beating expectations, when their young forwards found the scoring touch, and their defence showed bouts of brilliance.
So perhaps they are just settling back into where pre-season expectations and them, middle of the pack, maybe a contender for a wild card spot.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Golden Knights ML
The Flames probably have more in the tank than their recent performance would indicate, but Vegas is still the superior team.
This does seem like a match-up where the underdog will prevail, take Vegas and the under.
