1* Free Sharp Play on Red Wings
Friday NHL Free play. My selection is on Seattle over Calgary at 10:05 pm et on Friday.
The Flames dropped a 5-1 decision against the lowly Blackhawks last night - their second loss at the hands of Chicago this month. It's hard to imagine that head coach Darryl Sutter's time might be running out in Calgary given how disappointing the Flames have been this season. I don't think it gets any easier for them on Friday as they head to Seattle to face a revenge-minded Kraken squad. Seattle posted a 6-1 win over the Canucks two nights ago, climbing back to the .500 mark at home this season. While a .500 home record isn't anything to brag about, the Flames check in a woeful 9-15 on the road. This is a tough spot for Calgary, playing on a back-to-back and looking ahead to the extended All-Star break that follows (it won't play again until February 6th). Take Seattle.
