The Calgary Flames are coming off an impressive win against the Vegas Golden Knights and now get their fellow country mate, Montreal Canadiens. Historically, when these two teams meet, the Canadiens have gotten the better of the Flames–victorious in five of their last six meetings. Let’s see if the Flames can change that tonight. 
Today’s expected goaltender match-up for our highlighted game:
The Montreal Canadiens’ Cayden Primeau (6-6-2) vs. The Calgary Flames’ Dustin Wolf (2-3-1).

Nazem Kadri Over 3.5 Shots on Goal (-118)

Your $10.00 bet would return $18.50.
Nazem Kadri has cleared this line in three of his last six games, averaging 3.5 shots on 7.3 shot attempts. On home ice this season, Kadri is clearing at a 38% clip, averaging 3.4 shots on 6.1 shot attempts.
Against the Canadiens, Kadri has cleared in three of his last four games, averaging 4.3 shots on 7.3 shot attempts. Over their last 10 games, the Canadiens allow the most shots on goal to centres, averaging 13.1 per game.
On the season, Montreal is the third most penalized team in the entire league, giving up 3.4 power play opportunities against per game. Kadri parks himself right in front of the net on the power play and leads the team in both power play shots and shot attempts.

Cole Caufield Over 3.5 Shots on Goal (-125)

Your $10.00 bet would return $18.00.
Cole Caufield has covered this line in eight of his last ten games, averaging 3.9 shots on 6.5 shot attempts. On the road, he is clearing this line at a 56% clip and in nine of his last 10 games, averaging 4.0 shots on 6.9 shot attempts. 
Caufield has covered this line twice in five career games against the Flames, averaging 3.6 shots per game. One of these games came earlier this season when he had eight shots on 11 attempts. The Flames are in the middle of the pack regarding shots on goal allowed to wingers, averaging 11.0 per game, but Caufield is the Canadiens primary shooter.
The Flames allow the 11th most power play opportunities per game, averaging 3.0. Caufield leads the Canadiens in power play shots and shot attempts this season.

Calgary Flames & Vegas Golden Knights Over 6.5 & Nazem Kadri Point – LOSS – (-$7.00)
