But they'll need more from their top line to take advantage.
Over their final 31 regular-season games, Calgary's trio of Jiri Hudler, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan combined for 92 points. They have two assists -- each coming on a late power play with Game 2 out of reach -- eight shots on goal against Vancouver goaltender Eddie Lack and a combined minus-10-rating through the first two games.
"We're not too worried about our lack of success right now," said Monahan, who had 31 goals and 62 points in 81 regular-season games. "The crowd is going to be going tonight and I think we are going to feed off of that, and that's going to help us get going.
"It felt like it was coming and we know what we need to do to be better. We talked about it and we're going to have fun by doing that."
Game 3 is Sunday at Scotiabank Saddledome (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).
