Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 3 - Tampa Bay Lightning 4

There’s a lot that adds up to a loss here: 1) tough emotional loss in Nashville 2) back end of a road trip 3) afternoon game 4) the Lightning are REALLY good and have lost 4 in a row

Maddie Calgary Flames 3 - Tampa Bay Lightning 5

Ugh. I really want to pick the Flames to win this one because I think they’ll be extra motivated to get back on track after Thursday’s tough loss. But Tampa is really good and they’re going to be extra motivated to snap their losing streak. Unfortunately, I think the latter wins out. I just hope the Flames can at least hang in this one.
