2/11: Calgary Flames 3 @ Vancouver Canucks 1

Favorite: Calgary Line: -120 O/U: 6.0

Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 4 - Vancouver Canucks 2

The Canucks are due to score more than one goal at some point, so let’s make it tonight. They are also due to snap that six game losing streak, but that’s not tonight.

Maddie: Calgary Flames 3 - Vancouver Canucks 1

I still don’t trust the Canucks, gang. Maybe they get the better of the Flames at some point in this series, but I’m not really feeling like today is going to be the day for that. I like the Flames in this one.

Gordie: Calgary Flames 4 - Vancouver Canucks 0

The Flames have to be able to weather the Canucks initial push in the first period, before they should be able to take control of the game in the second and third. Jacob Markstrom has played near perfection in every start against Vancouver, and should he start tonight, there’s no reason to think that won’t continue.
