|CAL (-165) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing on CALGARY. The Flames turned the corner with Saturday's big win here. I expect them to build off that effort this evening. Note that Calgary is 8-2 its past 10, when facing an opponent which allowed five or more goals in its previous game. Meanwhile, the Sens are a dismal 3-14 their last 17, when allowing five or more goals in their previous game. Here's what I said prior to Calgary's win on Saturday: "I was winless on Thursday, an ugly day in a bad month. The Flames also hit rock bottom Thursday, a 6-1 loss to the lowly Senators. Just as I fully expect to bounce back, I fully expect the Flames to do the same today. That wasnt just an ordinary loss. It was a humbling and embarrassing one. It should be noted that the Flames were playing their fifth game in seven days on Thursday, the second of b2b games. They've since had a day off. If this team has any pride, which I believe it does, a response is required. Note that the Flames are 10-2 their last 12, when facing a team which scored five or more goals in its previous game. Expect them to come out with a vengeance and to improve on those stats this afternoon." While the Flames did indeed come out with a vengeance, it will all be for naught, if they don't follow it up with another win here. Expect them to do exactly that.
