Anaheim Ducks vs Calgary Flames 3/10/2023 Game Analysis, Tips and Picks

As the Anaheim Ducks (20-39-5) prepare to take on the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Friday, March 10, 2023, at 9:00 PM ET, they face a significant challenge. The team’s offensive performance has been lackluster, with an average of just 2.49 goals per game, leading to a disappointing season. The absence of key players Trevor Zegras, Troy Terry, and Mason McTavish has been especially felt, as they combined for 53 goals and 88 assists. The remaining players have struggled to produce, with only six active players scoring 10 goals or more, making it easy for opponents to shut down their struggling offense.

The defense has also struggled, ranking among the league’s worst with an average of 4.03 goals allowed per game, and conceding eight goals in their last two games. Cam Fowler and Kevin Shattenkirk have been the only bright spots on the team’s defense, combining for 3.6 defensive point shares. However, the lack of defensive support has allowed opponents to take advantage and score easily. Goalie John Gibson has also had a tough season, with a .902 save percentage, a 3.89 goals-against average, and a -5.3 goals-saved above average on 1643 shots.
