Gamethread #10: Habs @ Flames

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

After Wednesday's positive yet disappointing result against the Senators, the Flames head back home to face the seemingly unstoppable Montreal Canadiens. Winners of their first nine, yet losers of their past two (including last night's 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Oilers, who came from behind down 3-0), the Canadiens are looking to right the ship.

They don't have Carey Price in net, and the Flames don't have Brandon Bollig on the bench, so there's two things working in favour of the Flames. The Canadiens also have seen their underlying numbers slip:

While the Flames are trending in the opposite direction, with three of their last four games being possession wins. The Flames out-possessed Montreal in their two games last year, so hopefully these trends continue. Here's the big fancy table, for more info:
