Nashville vs Calgary by Sors
The hosts had some problems in the beginning of the month, but this good series in the last seven days brought them back in the race for the top spot in the Western conference, as Nashville is one point behind the leaders Anaheim, but with one game in hand.
Nine different players scored goals in the last four games, as Mike Ribeiro is 2+3 during that span, while Filip Forsberg is 2+2.
Calgary will try to avoid a third straight loss after those against Dallas on Wednesday (3-4 SO) and Minnesota yesterday (2-4) and to stay in the fight for the eighth position in the Western conference.
The Flames showed good play in offense in most of their games in March, but won only seven from thirteen in this period, mainly due to poor play in defense (7-3-3).Jiri Hudler is 4+8 in the last ten games, Johnny Gaudreau is 5+6, while Sean Monahan is 5+5.
Pekka Rinne is 0-1-1 with a 3.35 GAA in his last three starts versus the Flames over the last two years, while Jonas Hiller is 2-1-0 with a 3.35 GAA in three starts against Nashville in this period.
I think that the style of playing of these two teams is prerequisite for lot of goals in that game.
