Flames Host Sharks With Hopes Of Another Home Win

After a shocking loss by the San Jose Sharks last night in Edmonton, Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, and company will be motivated to win tonight in Calgary against the Flames.

In their 3-0 loss against the Edmonton Oilers, the Sharks can’t say that they didn’t try. Ben Scrivens saved 59 shots on goal – that is not a typo. Scrivens absolutely robbed San Jose of a win last night. The Sharks made 59 shots on goal and not one went in. After that surprising loss, I believe that the Sharks team picture should be in the dictionary under the word frustration.

San Jose is second in the Pacific Division with 74 points, trailing the Anaheim Ducks by 9 points.

While the Sharks are looking for retribution, the Calgary Flames will be looking to extend their much-needed win streak. Yes, it’s a small win streak, but the Flames have needed the momentum with a mere 45 points, placing them barely above the Oilers in the Pacific Division standings.

Mike Cammalleri returns to the line-up tonight after missing the last 8 games with a concussion, and Mark Giordano is on a seven-game point streak. Karri Ramo starts in net tonight for the Flames.

Will the Flames be able to win their fourth consecutive win at home?

Go Flames Go!
