On October 9th, NHL clubs will delight spectators with next thrilling matches. The best team of the Western Conference last season Calgary will play with Los Angeles. This season, the teams started not very well, and they need to win so as not to fall into the group of outsiders.
In the new season, Calgary does not differ in stability and loses points in matches even with weaker opponents. As part of the pre-season training, the team played eight games and won only 4 of them. As a result of the pre-season, the Canadian club took only 4th place in the Pacific Division, behind of Vegas, Anaheim and Los Angeles. As part of the regular season, Flames played just two matches. They unexpectedly lost to Colorado in the first round (5: 3). In the second round, the team immediately corrected the situation by confidently beating Edmonton. Calgary sent three unanswered goals to the opponent’s net. The best player in the squad after two rounds is Johnny Gaudreau, who participated in 5 goals.
Los Angeles Kings
Last season, Los Angeles failed and finished last in the Western Conference. This season, the team intends to rectify the situation and complete the regular championship at least in top 8 in the West. They are managing well so far considering their performance in the pre-season. “Kings” took 4th place in the Pacific Division and beat such rivals as Calgary and San Jose. In the new season, the team had only one meeting. They lost to Edmonton in a very dramatic and extremely productive confrontation. Los Angeles hit the opponents’ goal 5 times, but this did not help to get even 1 point as Oilers manager to score 6 times. The best players of the match in the Kings were Kopitar and Klefbom, who recorded themselves an asset for 3 productive actions.
