The final game of the Calgary Flames’ four-game road trip is tonight against the New York Rangers. Both teams come into tonight’s game winners of four consecutive games — one of these streaks has to end tonight. Historically, the Flames have had the Rangers number, winning six of their last eight head-to-head meetings. 
Today’s confirmed goaltending match-up: the Flames’ Jacob Markstrom (17-13-2) vs. the Rangers Igor Shesterkin (20-12-1).

Calgary Flames & New York Rangers Under 6.5 (-135)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.40.
Betting an under with how the Flames offence has been rolling since the All-Star Break is definitely a scary take, but I think we have an edge here. 
The Flames have gone under this total in four of their last 10 games, while the Rangers have hit this under in five of their last 10 games. These teams have gone under this total in four of their last five and seven of their last nine games against one another.
Since the all-star break, Markstrom has a 3-0 record, with a 2.02 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage. Igor Shesterkin got a lengthy break after the all-star game, only playing in one game in which he allowed three goals against and had a .903 save percentage. 
Both the Flames and the Rangers rank in the bottom top in goals against per game over their last 10 games. New York allowing 2.7 goals per game, while Calgary allowing 2.5 goals per game. 

Alexis Lafreniere Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-105)

Your $10.00 bet would return $19.52.
Alexis Lafreniere has cleared in five straight games, averaging 3.4 shots on 5.2 shot attempts per game. In Madison Square Garden, Lafreniere has covered this line in 11 of his last 12 games, averaging 3.25 shots on 5.0 shot attempts per game. When he sees 5+ shot attempts this season, Lafreniere clears in 86% of all home games, averaging 3.5 shots on goal.
The Calgary Flames don’t typically allow a lot of shots, averaging the 21st most on the season, but they allow the sixth most shots to wingers, averaging 13.0 per game to the position over their last 10. 

Last Game Recap

Calgary Flames Moneyline – WON – (+$11.00)
Noah Hanifin over 2.5 Shots on Goal – LOSS – (-$10.00)
The Flames continue their hot streak, defeating the New York Islanders 5-2, pushing their winning streak to four straight games. There was a defenceman who had a great game against the Islanders, but it was not Hanifin. MacKenzie Weegar scored his first career hat-trick and registered six shots on goal. Hanifin finished with two shots on five shot attempts. 
All-Time Record: 28-31 (-$29.79)
