NHL Standings

The Vancouver Canucks are sitting a top in first place of the Pacific Division, while the Calgary Flames are currently out of a wild card position after taking three L’s at home to start out the month of February. Somethings got to give on this west coast road trip.

Mark Giordano is out week-to-week with a hamstring injury. Oliver Kylington is in the line-up with Michael Stone. Geoff Ward has reunited the top line of Gaudreau-Monahan-Lindholm. Let’s see if the team can gel over this trip.

Flames-Canucks series is 1-1, with two games left to play between the two teams. Calgary was on the losing end of the last matchup, falling 5-2 to the Canucks in a home game. The Canucks have also lost 3 games in a row, but their top scorer Elias Pettersson will suit up today against the Flames.
