The previous meeting of the teams was on 12/18/2022 and ended in a 5-2 win for the Calgary Flames. One of the reasons behind their triumph was the performance of Elias Lindholm.

He played for 19:07, scoring one goal and providing one assist. The winners’ netminder Jacob Markstrom’s impact on the game is not to be underestimated, as he deflected 24 of all 26 shots on goal.
