The Calgary Flames got back in the win column on Monday afternoon as they defeated the Winnipeg Jets 6-3. They face another tough opponent today in the Boston Bruins. Two top 10 teams in the NHL standings in one week seems unfair, but the Flames are up for the test tonight. 
Tonight’s expected goaltender match-ups for our highlighted games:
The Bruins’ Linus Ullmark (16-6-4) vs. the Flames’ Jacob Markstrom (18-15-2).

Mikael Backlund over 2.5 shots on goal (-134)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.50.
Mikael Backlund has cleared this line in six of his last 10 games, averaging 2.6 shots on 4.9 shot attempts. In his last six games in the Scotiabank Saddlemore, Backlund has cleared in five games, averaging 3.3 shots on 5.7 shot attempts. 
Against the Bruins, Backlund has covered this line in four of his last five games, averaging 3.2 shots on 5.0 shot attempts. Boston is allowing the sixth most shots on goal, averaging 32.5 over their last 10 games.

Pavel Zacha point (-134)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.50.
Pavel Zacha has points in six of his last 10 games, totalling eight points. Looking into his road splits, Zacha has points in five of his last six games, totalling six points. Against the Flames, Zacha is on a six-game point streak, totalling seven points. Calgary is allowing 3.1 goals against over their last 10 games. 
The big milestone for tonight’s game is David Pastrnak currently sits at 699 career points. While at -550 odds, there’s no value in taking his point line — so why not pivot to his centreman, who also shares top power play duties with him? 

Last Game Recap

Auston Matthews Goal – WON – (+$8.00)
Arizona Coyotes Moneyline – LOSS – (-$5.00)
JJ Peterka Over 2.5 Shots on Goal – LOSS – (-$15.00)
Auston Matthews scores 50 and 51 against his hometown team in a winning effort. JJ Peterka breaks the hearts of shots on goal bettors as he had two shots halfway through the first period and can’t find another one on net. Brutal. 
All-Time Record: 34-44 (-$101.93)
