Leafs Struggle in Visits to Calgary

Leo Komarov Johnny Gaudreau Maple Leafs Flames NHL

*IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded captain Dion Phaneuf, Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey, Ryan Rupert and Cody Donaghey to the Ottawa Senators. Heading to Toronto are Jared Cowen, Colin Greening, Milan Michalek and Tobias Lindberg.

As the Toronto Maple Leafs do their best to ensure a high pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, it is tough to pick a spot to back them with confidence. Tuesday night is yet another one of those games where Leafs backers, if you’re still out there, should proceed with caution as their club visits the Calgary Flames.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 3-15 SU in the last 18 games between the Leafs and Flames.
  • The Flames are 14-6 SU in their last 20 home games.
  • The Maple Leafs are 5-1 SU in their last six games with two days off in between games.

The Leafs don’t visit Cowtown often, but when they do, it usually results in a loss. The Leafs are just 1-8 in their last nine games in Calgary and are currently +125 pups at online book Bovada.

The Flames have been flickering of late but have won two of their last three games after a three-game losing skid heading into the All-Star Break. The Flames defeated both the Carolina Hurricanes and Vancouver Canucks by scores of 4-1 with a 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets sandwiched between those victories.

The last time these two clubs met in Calgary was in was on March 13 of last season. The Flames hammered the Leafs 6-3 behind three points (one goal, two assists) from Johnny Gaudreau. Toronto’s last win in Calgary came on October 30, 2013 in a 4-2 contest.

Scores are usually high when these two meet in Alberta as the OVER has hit in each of the last four contests at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
