Vancouver Canucks Will Clash With Calgary Flames This Weekend

February 9, 2011

This weekend the Vancouver Canucks will take on the Calgary Flames in Vancouver.  The Canucks have been the superior team even as both of these teams have had solid seasons to this point. With a 35-10-9 record this season the Canucks are atop the conference.

Closer to game time, at online sportsbooks, check out NHL Betting.

It seems the Canucks are solid in every aspect of the game. They allow just 2.3 goals per game on defense as averaging 3.4 goals a game they have the 2nd best offense in the NHL.  In the league, this is the 3rd best average. In terms of power play percentage and penalty kill percentage, they are also one of the best teams.

At Left Wing the Canucks are led by Daniel Sedin. He has been a key facilitator for the Canucks on offense as he has 69 points on the season.  In order to limit the impact that Sedin has on the game, the Flames will need to try to find a way. To stop up and make plays this will force another player.

Even though the Flames seem to find a way to win games they are pretty much a middle of the pack team in most statistical categories. For the Flames Jarome Iginla is the main offensive force. Having dished out the most assists of any player on his team, he is the leading scorer. To have a big game against the Canucks, the Flames will need him.

The Canucks are certainly favored in this game even as the Flames do have an opportunity.
