Calgary Hoping To Get Back On Track Defensively

The Flames had the third best scoring defense in the NHL this season allowing only 2.51 goals per game. Their strong defense was on full display in the first round against the Dallas Stars as Calgary allowed only two goals per game in that seven-game series. It has been a very different story through the first two games of this series as Calgary allowed six goals in a 9-6 win in Game 1 and five goals in a 5-3 loss in Game 2.

The last regular season game between these two teams in March was also a barn-burner that Calgary won by a final score of 9-5. Bettors taking Calgary as their Flames vs Oilers prediction would love to see the Flames start slowing down Edmonton’s attack in the defensive zone.

Connor McDavid Has Been Unstoppable This Postseason

Down 3-1 in the second period, Connor McDavid drove to the net and created an opportunity that led to a goal. That goal was waved off, but Calgary received no reprieve as McDavid scored a goal on a beautiful individual effort just 32 seconds later. McDavid finished the game with a goal and an assist, bringing his playoff totals to six goals and 14 assists in nine games.

Leon Draisaitl has also been red hot with one goal and two assists in both Game 1 and Game 2 against the Flames. Now the Oilers return home, where they are 16-3 SU over their last 19 games. The Oilers are still the underdogs in this series, but they could flip the script on that with a pair of wins at home.

Flames vs Oilers Pick & Insights

Flames: Keys to Win

The Flames have to play better special teams on Sunday night than they did in Game 2. Calgary gave up a power play goal and a shorthanded goal in Friday night’s loss and had trouble building momentum 5-on-5 with so many trips to the penalty box. A cleaner effort on the road could lead to a Flames vs Oilers prediction win.

Oilers: Keys to Win

Edmonton just needs to keep pushing the tempo on offense. Calgary has a dangerous offense too, but the Oilers are still far more likely to win as a Flames vs Oilers pick in a wide-open game than they would be in a tight and gritty one. The home crowd could play a big role in this one.
