After another heartbreaking overtime loss, the Florida Panthers (10-8-4) will head deeper into Alberta to face the Calgary Flames (9-9-3) at Scotiabank Saddledome. Last night, the Cats were seconds away from victory before Evan Bouchard sent the game to the extra session where Leon Draisaitl won it by finishing off a 2-on-1 break with fellow superstar Connor McDavid. The Flames are opening a five-game homestand and will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak (0-2-1) tonight. This game will mark Matthew Tkachuk’s return to Calgary after the blockbuster summer trade that sent Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar and prospect Cole Schwindt (currently marinating with the AHL Wranglers) north. The Flames beat the Panthers 5-4 in a shootout in Sunrise ten days ago.
