Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 2 - St. Louis Blues 4

Yeah, the Flames took the Blues to OT on November 9th, that’s also the game that started their current five game slide. The Flames 3rd line won’t be able to carry them here and I don’t see their best players stepping up against the machine that is St. Louis. Sorry kids, I’m Negative Nelly again today. Flames lose their 6th straight.

Maddie: Calgary Flames 3 - St. Louis Blues 2

I’m not feeling super confident about the Flames winning this one because of how much trouble the Blues have given them in the past. But I’ve been on the “the Flames’ process has been pretty much sound, of late, and the breaks will start going their way eventually” train, and I still that all of that is true. Might those breaks start to come tonight? Maybe! I’m going to keep trying optimism until it works.

Renu: Calgary Flames 2 - St. Louis Blues 0

Here’s to hoping that the Flames stole Binnington’s lucky charms this morning. I’m going against the grain and calling a Rittich shutout. The team is desperate for a win, and needs a huge morale boost to start this 4 game road trip. Zac Rinaldo’s 9 shifts might not have a huge impact, but he does more to uplift spirits on the bench than most.
