T.M. Selection: Flames/Habs OVER (10* TOTAL BEST OF BEST).
Calgary beat Montreal here two nights ago by a score of 4-1. Clearly, the Canadiens, who have now lost three of their last four, are going to be desperate here and can't afford to sit back and hope for the Flames to make the first mistake. Pushing the pace though opens you up on the backend, which these opportunistic Flames will be looking to take advantage of. The bottom line is, both teams need to string together wins if they have any hopes at all in making the playoffs. Also note that Montreal has seen the total go over in seven of its last ten home games in trying to revenge a loss vs. an opponent in which it was held to one or less goals in; the play is the OVER.
T.M. Prediction: 5-4 Canadiens.
