Staff Predictions & Lines: Three Writers, Three Picks For Calgary

We're all on board with the Flames winning tonight.

Staff Predictions

Calgary Flames @ Winnipeg Jets, 6 PM MT

Favorite: Winnipeg Line: -105 O/U: 6

Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 5 - Winnipeg Jets 2

The Flames learned their lesson from opening night: don’t stop scoring. The Flames have Connor Hellebuyck’s number lately, so throw some extra pucks in the net and collect two points. Seems easy enough, no?

Maddie: Calgary Flames 4 - Winnipeg Jets 2

The Jets are still a bit of a mess, and I like how the Flames were able to get rolling again with their last game against Montreal. I don’t know that I’m banking on them being able to shut out the Jets completely, but I think the Flames should be able to beat them pretty handily. I’m feeling good about this one.

Michael: Calgary Flames 3 - Winnipeg Jets 0

I think we see the Flames come out with a steady performance tonight and take down the Jets who didn’t look that good against Vancouver in their last game. Expect Marky to have another good game in net as well.
