THE BIG MATCHUP

TJ BRODIE VS. EELI TOLVANEN

Calgary Sun - - SPORTS -

Brodie has been qui­etly com­ple­ment­ing Mark Gior­dano all sea­son, re­gain­ing his game and groove back af­ter a tough 2017-18 cam­paign. He’s lead­ing the team with a plus-21 rat­ing and it’s easy to see why. He’ll be up against up-and-com­ing Preda­tors prospect Tolvanen and is un­der a lit­tle more pres­sure with the Flames cap­tain out of the lineup. With in­juries to for­wards Filip Fors­berg and Vik­tor Arvids­son open­ing up two spots in Nashville’s top-six, all eyes have turned to Tolvanen. The Preda­tors’ first-round (30th over­all) pick in 2017 comes with high ex­pec­ta­tions. Tolvanen, a 19-year-old Finn, made his sea­son de­but against the Chicago Blackhawks last Satur­day and had one goal and one as­sist.
