Canucks vs Flames: How to live stream, game time, predictions, odds for Saturday’s NHL game


ESPN+ will broadcast Saturday’s game between the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flamers live, with the puck set to drop at 10:07 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta. CBC will broadcast the game as part of its Hockey Night in Canada coverage. Sportsnet will have local broadcasts for both teams and TVA Sports will have the broadcast in French.

Vancouver (38-29-11) is playing for its life in the playoffs. The Canucks are four points behind the Dallas Stars for second wildcard in the Western Conferences with four games remaining. The Canucks can’t be officially eliminated even with a loss, but that would likely end any real chance of going to the playoffs. Vancouver has gone 6-2-2 in its last ten games just to give itself a chance, but a 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday was a big sign the Canucks are probably one year away.

Calgary (48-20-10) clinched that the Pacific Division will face the No. 1 wild card team in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Flames come at the right time, going 8-1-1 in their last ten games and a Western Conference-best +84 goal differential. Talented forward Johnny Gaudreau (38 G, 71 A) is a Hart Trophy contender and is going to have one of the best seasons for an American-born player in the NHL. He and teammate Matthew Tkachuk (40 G, 60 A) are the first American-born teammates to both have 100-point seasons.

I certainly appreciate Vancouver’s late push to try and get into the playoffs, but the Flames have too many guns and are too good at home. Expect Calgary to get away with this one.
