TV: SN1 - Radio: Sportsnet 960
Odds: Calgary Flames (-115) - NJ Devils (-105), O/U: 6
The Flames and their three game winning streak will leave NYC and head south on the turnpike to pay the NJ Devils a visit Tuesday night. Calgary has embarked on a five game road trip and they’ve won three of the first five and have looked good doing so. They shutout the upstart Red Wings. They battled and defeated Washington in OT. And then Monday night they came out and absolutely laid waste to the NY Rangers at MSG. The Flames should be riding high and the injury depleted Devils are certainly going to have their hands full with Calgary. Jacob Markstrom has won his last two starts and given up only one goal in those two outings. Elias Lindholm might be the hottest player in the league as he has seven points in the Flames first five games and is tied for second in the league with six goals. Andrew Mangiapane now has five goals in 2021 and he’s had a point in four of Calgary’s first five games. Want more? The Flames defence has really settled in after a rough start and if you really want to look into things, the Flames have been perfect since Oliver Kylington was put back in the lineup. All in all, this is going to be a tough team for NJ to line up against tonight.
As for those Devils, NJ is in the midst on an injury nightmare. They’ve lost their top goalie in Jonathan Bernier this season after only two starts and all world forward Jack Hughes is out as well. He’s played in only two games as well, but had two goals and an assist in that time frame and things were looking good for the Devils. Since both Hughes and Bernier went down NJ has gone 1-0-1 and been outscored 5-3 and now they’re looking at a Flames team that is clicking on all cylinders coming to town. Not exactly what the Devils imagined their season starting like.
Calgary hasn’t set foot in New Jersey since 2019 when they defeated the Devils 2-1. The Prudential Center must feel like a home away from home for the Flames as they’ve won six out of the last seven times they’ve been in the Garden State.
