The 3 game losing streak came to an end for the Flames in St. Louis as they defeated the Blues 6-3 in an â€œaction packedâ€ game that encompassed multiple goal scorers, a couple of two men disadvantages and conspicuous rivalry between the two teams. Despite the twelve penalties called against the Flames, it was undoubtedly thrilling to witness them kill all but one penalty and stand tall as they head off to Minnesota for one more road game against the Wilds.
The Minnesota Wilds rank 8th in the western conference. They are 15-13-1 with a home record of 8-6-1 and a total of 31 points. Simultaneously, the Calgary Flames are 17-11-3 with a total of 37 points and a record of 8-7-1 when playing away on the road. Both teams have won 8 games a piece. Although the visiting team has an upper hand over their counterparts, on the scary forefront is the unfavourable Wildâ€™s power play and penalty killing statistics that the Flames will have to surpass. Discipline that was absent in the game against the Blues will have to be the fundamental strategy for the continued success in this road trip.
The game will be televised on TSN Wednesday, December 17th at 6:00 pm. Fans can tune in to the Fan 960 for a full play by play coverage.
