INJURY TO WATCH
Calgary left winger Johnny Gaudreau (personal), Matthew Tkachuk (upper body) and defenseman TJ Brodie (upper body) are all questionable to play tonight. Center Sean Monahan (wrist) and right winger Kris Versteeg (hip) are both out for the season. Left winger Marek Hrivik (undisclosed) is out indefinitely.
Calgary has allowed a lot of goals during its five-game losing streak, but has scored a total of three goals in the last four games combined. Los Angeles hasn’t surrendered more than three goals in any of its last six contests and if it gets a lead, usually does a fantastic job of sitting on it. Take the under here as the juice on LA is too much to stomach. If you want to be a daredevil, take a shot on the Flames but go into it knowing full well a loss is the more likely outcome.
