Calgary Flames hockey returns for this 10-game Tuesday night slate. Today’s opponent? Hometown hero Cale Makar and the Colorado Avalanche. The Flames are playing their third game in four nights and have lost two straight. The Avalanche come into tonight on a three-game win streak and are the much more well-rested team, playing their first game in four nights. 
Today’s expected goaltender matchup for our highlighted game:
The Colorado Avalanche’s Justus Annunen (3-2-1) vs. The Calgary Flames’ Dan Vladar (8-8-2).

Calgary Flames & Colorado Avalanche over 6.5 (-110)

Your $10.00 bet would return $19.09.
Goals, goals, goals.
The Flames and Avalanche historically have gone under, but it was a shootout when these two teams last met, finishing with 11 total goals scored. 
The Flames have gone over this total in four of their last seven games, but they finished one goal shy with their three misses. Over this span, the average total of their game is 7.3 goals per game. Calgary averages 3.6 goals over that seven-game span.
The Avalanche have gone over this total in two of their last seven games, but while averaging 4.0 goals per game over that span, they’ve still been able to score.
Colorado turns to Annunen tonight, who is coming off back-to-back shutouts. But before this fantastic run, he had a 3.56 goals against average and a .898 save percentage.

Mikael Backlund over 2.5 shots on goal (-167)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.00.
Yup, straight back to Mikael Backlund’s shots on goal props. 
Backlund has cleared this line in just one of his last five games, but that one was his previous game, in which he had four shots on six shot attempts against a difficult Carolina Hurricanes opponent. On home ice, Backlund has covered in seven of his last 10 games, averaging 3.1 shots on 5.8 shot attempts. 
Against the Avalanche, he has cleared in six of their last seven, averaging 3.0 shots on 4.5 shot attempts. Backlund has hit this line in three straight when looking at his home splits against the Avalanche. Colorado allows the 10th most shots to centres, averaging 11.6 per game. 

Mikko Rantanen assist (-134)

Your $10.00 bet would return $17.50.
Mikko Rantanen has an assist in nine straight games, totalling 12 assists and has a five-game assist streak on the road. Against the Flames, Rantanen has had seven assists in his last seven games, including three this season. 

Last Game Recap

Nazem Kadri Over 2.5 Shots on Goal – WON – (+$7.50)
Martin Necas Over 2.5 Shots on Goal – WON – (+$7.50)
Woohoo! We finally go two for two with these shots on goal props. While this game wasn’t very pretty, Necas registered his three shots in the first period, with Kadri coming through in garbage time. Let’s hope for more of the same tonight!
All-Time Record: 47-58 (-$140.78)
