Flames are Red-Hot at Home Lately

Calgary Flames Johnny Gaudreau

The Boston Bruins saw their season-high five-game winning streak end thanks to a 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday but will be seeking to get back to their winning ways against the Calgary Flames Friday. Calgary has failed to capitalize on the momentum they built that culminated in a surprise playoff berth last season and is sitting at an underwhelming 9-14-1 at the quarter mark of the 2015 NHL campaign.

Shark Bites
  • The Flames are 5-0 SU in their last five games in December.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Bruins' last nine games against the West conference.
  • The Bruins are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road in December.

The good news for Flames backers is they’ve been a different team at home as of late, claiming each of their last five tilts at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Home ice advantage has been huge in this series, as visiting clubs have gone just 3-7 in the last 10 meetings between Calgary and Boston.

Boston has held the upper hand in recent clashes with the Flames, triumphing in five out of their last seven matchups versus Calgary.
