The Calgary Flames are back in action in a pivotal match-up against the Seattle Kraken. This game is so crucial for both teams as they are on the outside looking in and are looking to catch the Nashville Predators for the final wild-card spot. 
Tonight’s expected goaltender match-ups for our highlighted game:
The Seattle Kraken’s Philip Grubauer (9-10-1) vs. The Calgary Flames’ Jacob Markstrom (21-15-2).

Jared McCann over 2.5 shots on goal (-150)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.50.
Jared McCann has cleared this line in five of his last six games, averaging 3.3 shots on 6.0 shot attempts. On the road this season, McCann covers this line at a 61% clip, averaging 3.0 shots on 5.8 shot attempts. 
Let’s round this number down to five shot attempts – when McCann sees 5+ shot attempts, he eclipses this line at a 74% rate, averaging 3.3 shots per game. Let’s cross our fingers McCann can find his five shot attempts tonight. 
Against the Flames, McCann has covered this line in two of his last three games, averaging 2.7 shots on 6.3 shot attempts. Calgary allows the seventh most shots to wingers, averaging 13 per game to the position.
