During the regular season, the Flames found the net 293 times, good for a rank of 6th among NHL teams.Heading into the game, Calgary is the 3rd ranked defensive team, allowing opponents to score at an average rate of 2.51 goals per game. For the year, the Flames have a strength of schedule rating of 27th in the league. When diving into their opponent-adjusted scoring margin, they come into this game as the 2nd ranked team in the NHL.
The Edmonton Oilers look to pick up their 3rd win of the series, as they most recently pick up a 4-1 win over the Flames. During the regular season, the Oilers scored 290 goals, giving them an average of 3.48. This output gives them a rank of 7th among NHL teams. For the year, Edmonton is the 16th ranked unit, giving up 3.06 goals per contest. So far, the Oilers have played the 17th toughest schedule in the league. And, when taking into account Edmonton's scoring margin relative to the quality of their competition, they come in with a power ranking of 11th in the NHL.
Through 82 games, the Calgary Flames' leading goal scorer is Matthew Tkachuk. With his 62 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 104. On the season, he is turning 16.6% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Flames have benefited from the strong play of Johnny Gaudreau, who is the team's overall leader in points. In Calgary's 82 games, he has come up with 40 goals on a shooting percentage of 15.3%. While on the ice, his offensive production has led to a plus-minus rating of 64. Calgary's top goalie is Jacob Markstrom, who is giving up an average of 2.22 goals per game. In his 63 games played, he has turned in 38 quality starts, giving him a quality start percentage above the league average.
Through 82 games, Edmonton's leading goal scorer is Leon Draisaitl. With his 55 goals and 55 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 110. On the season, he is turning 19.8% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Oilers have benefited from the strong play of Connor McDavid, who is the team's overall leader in points. In Edmonton's 82 games, he has come up with 44 goals on a shooting percentage of 14.0%. While on the ice, his offensive production has led to a plus minus rating of +28. Edmonton's top goalie is Mikko Koskinen, who is giving up an average of 3.1 goals per game. In his 45 games played, he has come up with a quality start just 44 percent of the time.
Heading into game 4, the over-under record is set at 6.5 goals. So far, 2 of the 3 previous games surpassed this total. In game 4, I recommend taking the over, as the Flames' 6th ranked scoring offense is unlikely to be contained in two straight games. Look for this matchup to end in another high-scoring shootout.
