The Calgary Flames and Pittsburgh Penguins face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at PPG Paints Arena. 

Flames Look for Strong Offense to Continue

The Flames come into this game with a 1-0 record and they looked good in the first game against the Winnipeg Jets. The offense scored five goals against the Winnipeg Jets. Even though they won, the defense did give up  three goals and that is someithing  that is going  to need to be cleaned up in this game. Andrew Mangiapane had a strong game finishing with two goals and one assist. Elias Lindholm also finished with one goal and two assists. Jacob Markstrom faced 37 goals and the defense needs to step up more than that. 

Penguins Coming off Big Win Friday

The Penguins might have tired legs, but they are flying high after winning on Friday. The Penguins scored four goals against the Washington Capitals, but even more impressive was the defense giving up zero goals. Evgeni Malkin had a strong game finishing with one goal and three assists. Sidney Crosby also had two goals and five shots on goal. Tristan Jarry only faced 19 shots but he saved all of them. 

Shane’s Free Pick

If the Penguins weren’t on tired legs, I might take them here, but they are on tired legs and that is going to hurt the defense. The Flames scored five goals in the last game and they are going to find success in this game. Look for the Flames to run up the score and they will finish with at least four or five goals. This will be a very comfortable victory by the Flames. Back the Flames on the money line.
