Puck Line Pick

The Flames are barely hanging on to a playoff spot in the West as of Saturday night. At the moment, they are tied with Arizona in points. That being said, they need to take care of business of teams like the Red Wings. Speaking of this Detroit team, they really are not playing for much nowadays. Having lost five of their last six games now has them eliminated from playoff contention. We are not even in March and Detroit is done. It also seems like Detroit can only beat the Canadiens this season, so I look for Calgary to easily take care of business as it means much more to their season.

Over Under Pick

This total is one to stay away from because Detroit is just that bad. They only average 2 goals per game, by far the worst offense in the NHL. The Flames also have a below average offense, scoring just 2.9 goals per game. Over the last five games, each team is allowing at least 4 goals per game. Because Calgary’s defense is starting to struggle, I do lean to the over here. The over is also 5-0-3 in the last 8 meetings, so that would be my pick if I had to bet it.
