THE VALLEY OF SIM

Our EA Sports NHL20 series continues as the Flames hit the road to take on the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena

It's off to Vegas!

Well, sort of.

Another NHL 20 simulation game is coming your way, but this time, we're taking the show on the road as the Flames will pay a visit to the virtual T-Mobile Arena to take on the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights.

It's time to throw on the road whites for a heavyweight bout in Sin City.  

 

 

A week after beating the vaunted Flames Alumni squad with an inspirational comeback effort, the Flames are back facing a bitter, divisional rival, looking to stay perfect after unloading on the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks in previous games.

Having outscored opponents by a 15-10 margin in three tilts in the World of Chel - highlighted by a 6-5 overtime win over the Canucks in Game 2 - there has been no shortage of offence for the good guys.

Dillion Dube, Milan Lucic and Matthew Tkachuk have led the way each tied for the team-lead in goals in the simulations with two goals apiece.

Prior to the league-wide pause in the real world, the Golden Knights had won all three head-to-head matchups between these two teams this year. But today, the virtual Flames look to exact some revenge and pick up their first-ever win on The Strip.

David Rittich will get the start in goal after Cam Talbot led the Flames to victory last week over an Alumni squad featuring Doug Gilmour, Theo Fleury and Joe Nieuwendyk and so many more.

Marc-Andre Fleury will stand at the opposite end, sporting the infamous gold pads for the homeside.

Will the Flames be able to parlay their perfect 3-0 record at the virtual Scotiabank Saddledome onto the road?

You'll have to tune in to find out!

 

 

Once again, Flames radio play-by-play announcer Derek Wills will have the call with the action getting underway LIVE at 11 a.m. on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, and right here on CalgaryFlames.com and the Flames app.
