Staff Predictions & Lines: Got A Hot Goalie? Keep Riding Him

Four predictions, all Flames.

Staff Predictions

Calgary Flames vs Dallas Stars, 3:30 PM MT

Favorite: Dallas Line: -110 O/U: 5.0

Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 5 - Dallas Stars 1

Calgary comes out confident and lights up the struggling Stars. No more are these boring affairs. The Flames show off they are turning into a well oiled machine and a team to be taken seriously.

Michael: Calgary Flames 4 - Dallas Stars 2

Like Mark said, I think the Flames come out hot with a strong first period (something we didn’t really see against Winnipeg) and grab a two goal lead that they never give up the rest of the game.

Maddie: Calgary Flames 3 - Dallas Stars 2

I’m coming in with some optimism, gang! I think this game may well end up being a closer one, but I like the Flames in this matchup in general, and I think they’ll be able to come out strong and deliver the first blow, if you will. Let’s go.

Renu: Calgary Flames 2 - Dallas Stars 1

I bet on the Flames, with the under. Both teams will come out strong no doubt, but I don’t see any big moves as they try to secure game 1.
