The Calgary Flames and Columbus Blue Jackets face off on Friday in an NHL showdown at Nationwide Arena. 

Flames Look for Second Win in as Many Nights

The Flames sit with a 2-1-1 record and they are coming off a big victory on Thursday Night. The Flames scored two goals in the third period and that was enough to beat the Sabres 4-3. The Flames used a balanced attack with four different players scoring and no one had more than one point on the night. At times this season the Flames offense has been inconsistent and they're going to need the offense to be good early. 

Can the Blue Jackets Bounce Back?

The Blue Jackets have only one win this season and in the last game the offense really struggled. The Blue Jackets gave up three goals in the second period, and the offense couldn’t get anything going as they were defeated 4-0. In the two losses the Blue Jackets have scored two goals total and in the one win they scored five goals. In this game the Blue Jackets need to get the offense going early. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Even on tired legs, I think the Flames get the job done. The Blue Jackets can’t be trusted and they are going to really struggle in this game. In this game, the Blue Jackets will score only a goal or two. The Flames will find a way to score three or four goals again and that will be the difference as Calgary is going to get the job done. Back the Flames on the money line. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
