Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 4 - LA Kings 1

I’m going out on a limb here. Calgary hasn’t played particularly well against the bottom of the barrel Kings in 2019-20, but LA has been BRUTAL lately. They’ve only won once in their last 10 and only scored 19 times over that stretch. Here’s to three in a row!

Maddie: Calgary Flames 3 - LA Kings 1

This one feels like a trap game and we know that the Flames have fallen for those before (not always, but they’ve done it!), so I think if you’re heading into this one still be feeling a little nervous, it’s reasonable. But, like Mark said, the Kings have been just so bad recently. I think the Flames can get past them relatively easily. Let’s go.

Flash: Calgary Flames 6 - LA Kings 2

WHY NOT. Things happen in 3’s right? Actually the Kings are the most intriguing teams in the league. Their shot metrics are top 8 league wide and they’re finish is terrible. Either way a loss to the worst team in the West would be embarrassing. Let’s go out and STUDIS
