This is the second game of a home and home series to open up the season for the Canucks and Flames. Vancouver took the first one in tremendous fashion, beating Calgary by a score of 5-2.
The Canucks tried their hardest to let Calgary back into the game on Wednesday, giving the Flames seven Power Play opportunities, but still came out on top when the final buzzer blew. To beat a bitter rival on home ice in the season opener is always a sweet feeling.
Home openers aren’t always a given that a winning season is on the horizon though. This was Vancouver’s 5th straight season opening win, and as we all know, it hasn’t really worked out in the Canucks favor too often.
Seven Power Play opportunities for the Flames in game one, yet zero Power Play goals. If you fly a goose egg in the Power Play percentage category with that many chances, it may be time to get back to the practice rink and run about 3,000 more drills.
The other stat the Flames will need to work on for this rematch is their scoring chances. They out shot the Canucks 35-23, yet only put the puck in the back of the net twice. They’ll need to generate higher percentage shots if they want to score more in this one.

Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames NHL Prediction:
Nobody wants to lose the first game of the season in front of their home fans, but unfortunately, Calgary’s fans are going to see how bad it hurts to want something they can’t have.
Cancuks should be able to get right back at it on Saturday night and dismantle the Calgary Flames once again.
