Flames vs Sharks Preview: NHL Western Conference Odds
Following a 4-2 loss, at home to the Vancouver Canucks at home on Saturday, San Jose should be a fairly ornery bunch as they roll into the Stampede City tonight. Prior to that, the Sharks had won three straight as they defeated the Canucks twice and Montreal by a combined 13-5 final count. San Jose is well positioned to make a run at the Stanley Cup as they are 35-23-6 overall.
With lots of controversy swirling about, Calgary is limping towards the end of their 2015-16 season. Minnesota currently holds the final Western Conference playoff spot and any combination of ten wins by the Wild or losses by the Flames will officially eliminate Calgary from the postseason. The Flames snapped a seven-game losing run with an impressive 4-2 win in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
