Staff Predictions & Lines: Matthew Tkachuk Is A Game Time Decision

The Flames might be getting some help back tonight.

Staff Predictions

Calgary Flames vs Dallas Stars, 3:30 PM MT, Rogers Place, Edmonton AB

Favorite: Dallas Line: -125 O/U: 5.0

8/11: Game 1- Calgary Flames 3 - Dallas Stars 2

8/13: Game 2- Calgary Flames 4 - Dallas Stars 5

8/14: Game 3- Calgary Flames 2 - Dallas Stars 0

8/16: Game 4- Calgary Flames 4 - Dallas Stars 5 (OT)

Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 3 - Dallas Stars 2

I think this will be another tight contest that the Flames will handle well. Calgary has done well bouncing back after tough losses and hopefully this is the same deal. Being in a 3-2 hole after losing that heart breaker on Sunday won’t be good for anyone’s mojo.

Maddie: Calgary Flames 4 - Dallas Stars 3

The Flames have played a couple of not great games here, but they’ve still been able to keep things close, and that’s not nothing. I can’t imagine they’re fully satisfied with their play, so they’ll be looking to respond well and get back into the lead in the series. I’m feeling pretty good about their chances, don’t let me down gang.
