“The Calgary Flames have placed defenceman Mark Giordano on injured reserve with a right hamstring injury. Flames general manager Brad Treliving said Tuesday that Giordano will be out week-to-week.”
Both teams are coming from very low scoring games. Flames lost at home 1-3 to lowly San Jose Sharks and Nashville won super tough road game in Winnipeg against Jets, after overtime 2-1.
Saros and Rinne having disappointing seasons with both recording save percentages below .900.
Flames missing top goaltender for another season. And neither Tablot or Rittich are trustworthy.
Flames owns overall good defense this season but in last 3 games (2 against Edmonton and 1 against San Jose) they lost 15 goals over this short period and now they will miss their captain and best defender Giordano due to injury.
Predators allowed 35+ shots against Jets and many of them were dangerous and they allowing average of more than 3 goals per game.
Before that they lost 3 goals to Vegas and played crazy 6-5 game against NJ Devils.
Predators still searching for their identity under coach Hynes and its unlikely they will make play offs but this team have talent up front with guys like Forsberg, Johansen, and Duchene.
Flames with Gadreau and Tkachuk can always score especially at home.
Flames lack of focus many times in the 1st period of the games setting some crazy, higher scoring battles and I think this could be another one of them.
