The Calgary Flames will be trying to snap their four-game losing streak when they face the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.
Avalanche Going For Second Consecutive WinThe Avalanche had their three-game winning streak snapped by Edmonton last week, but they bounced back with a win over Vancouver in their last game and will be trying to keep the momentum going by picking up their second win in a row and fifth win in their last six games when they play on Tuesday night.
Colorado has played well offensively this season, averaging 3.65 goals per game. They have played even better in their last five games and are averaging 4.8 goals per game during that span.
Nathan MacKinnon has been a big part of the team’s success this season and leads the Avalanche with 13 goals and 29 points. He has five goals and six assists in their last five games. Cale Makar has also played well for the Avalanche and leads the team with 17 assists. He has four goals and six assists in their last five games.
The Avalanche are likely going to be without Matt Calvert, who left Saturday’s game against the Canucks with a head injury after taking a puck to the head. He is listed as day-to-day.
Colorado has played well on the defensive end, holding opponents to 2.95 goals per game. They have given up five goals per game in their last two games and will need to play better if they want to pick up the win.
Flames Trying To Snap Five-Game Losing Streak To AvalancheThe Flames haven’t played well over the last week and have lost their last four games. They have also lost their last five games to the Avalanche and will be trying to snap both streaks on Tuesday night. However, they will need to play better than they have in their last four games, especially on offense, if they want to end their losing streaks.

The Flames are averaging 2.52 goals per game this season, but their offense has gone colder than it already was, and the team is averaging 0.75 goals per game in their last four games after getting shutout in their last two games. With the Avalanche averaging almost five goals per game in their last five games, the Flames will need to figure out a way to end their scoring drought.
Matthew Tkachuk has been Calgary’s best offensive e weapon this season, leading the team with 10 goals and 20 points. Like his teammates, he has been cold of late and has one goal and one assist in their last five games.
Johnny Gaudreau leads the Flames with 13 assists. He has one goal and two assists in their last five games.
Calgary has played well defensively, holding opponents to 3.04 goals per game. They have struggled during their losing streak and are giving up 3.75 goals per game. They gave up six goals to Las Vegas in their last game and will need to also play better on the defensive end if they want to get past the Avalanche.
