Friday night NHL action comes your way on January 18th as the Detroit Red Wings travel to Calgary to take on the Flames live from the Scotiabank Saddledome.
The Red Wings are coming off a win over Anaheim on Tuesday night, while the Flames suffered a rare defeat in overtime to Buffalo 4-3 on Wednesday. Calgary won the last meeting between these two earlier this month by a score of 5-3.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings have now won two straight, but only two out of their last five games as they are clinging on to their third from last in the Eastern Conference spot at the moment. Calgary is not the team they want to be running into right now either.
Dylan Larkin is the Wings leading scorer with 18 goals and 27 assists with a very undesirable -5 plus/minus rating. Projected starting goalie Jimmy Howard has a 13-12-5 record with a 2.71 GAA and a .917 save percentage. Clearly he is one of the bright spots this year for this struggling franchise.
Injury Report: C Michael Rasmussen and D Trevor Daley are both listed as “out” for Friday night.
The loss on Wednesday night stopped the Flames five game win streak dean in its tracks, yet they still received a point, and their lead in the Western Conference is a safe 2 points thanks to Arizona beating San Jose on Wednesday night. The Flames should be able to get back to their winning ways against a very bad Detroit team.
Johnny Gaudreau is the Flames leading scorer with 27 goals and 42 assists with a +21 plus/minus rating. Projected starting goalie David Rittich comes in with a 17-4-3 record, a 2.45 GAA and a .920 save percentage.
Injury Report: LW James Neal and D Travis Hamonic are both listed as “questionable” for Friday, while Defensemen Juuson Valimaki and Michael Stone are both listed as “out.”

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Calgary Flames NHL Prediction:
The only thing that may be hotter than the Calgary Flames at the moment is the Tampa Bay Lightning, so I wouldn’t expect too much of a showing form the hapless Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.
If any of you watched Calgary’s beat down on Arizona on Sunday evening, be ready to witness the same sort of game here. Take the Flames to win this game at home in big fashion.
