Calgary Flames vs. St. Louis Blues Predictions

The Calgary Flames are entering the game on a four-game losing streak, looking to turn their fortunes around as they visit the St. Louis Blues at the Enterprise Center. The Flames have been struggling to find consistency this season, with their offense led by Nazem Kadri who has tallied 60 points so far. However, Calgary’s defense will need to step up if they hope to contain a Blues team that has shown they can be potent on home ice, boasting a 21-12-2 record at the Enterprise Center.

St. Louis, on the other hand, is coming off a loss but has been playing well recently, going 6-4-0 in their last ten games. The Blues have been led by the impressive play of Jordan Kyrou and Robert Thomas, with Thomas leading the team with 73 points. The Blues’ offense ranks in the middle of the pack, but their defense has been a strong point, especially at home. This game could come down to which team can take control of the puck and dictate the pace of play.

Key player matchups to watch include the Flames’ Blake Coleman, who has netted 28 goals this season, going up against Blues’ goaltender Jordan Binnington, who has been a solid last line of defense for St. Louis. On the flip side, the Flames’ goaltending will be tested by the Blues’ top scorers, making for an intriguing battle at both ends of the ice. With both teams fighting for their playoff lives, expect a tightly contested game with playoff atmosphere intensity.

Calgary Flames vs. St. Louis Blues Pick

Despite the Calgary Flames’ recent struggles and four-game losing streak, the value lies in their moneyline bet for this matchup. The Flames have shown they can compete with the St. Louis Blues, as evidenced by their close 4-3 loss earlier in the season. Calgary’s offense, led by Nazem Kadri, has the potential to break out at any moment, and with the Blues’ recent loss, there may be an opportunity for the Flames to capitalize on any lack of confidence or defensive lapses. Additionally, the Flames have historically managed to cover the spread against the Blues, indicating that they often perform better than expected in this particular matchup. With the Flames desperate to snap their losing streak and keep their playoff hopes alive, expect a motivated performance that could very well lead to an upset victory on the road.

The Pick: Calgary Flames +110 (BetMGM)
