It’s the battle of Alberta tonight on Hockey Night in Canada as the Edmonton Oilers travel down south for a date with your Calgary Flames. So far this season, the Oilers hold a 2-1 record against the Flames — let’s see if the Flames can even up the season series. 
Today’s confirmed goaltender matchup for our highlighted game:
The Calgary Flames’ Jacob Markstrom (23-20-2) vs. the Edmonton Oilers’ Calvin Pickard (11-6-0).

MacKenzie Weegar point (-105)

Your $10.00 bet would return $19.52.
MacKenzie Weegar has eight points on his current five-game point streak. He has a point in 51% of all home games this season, totalling 23 of his 48 points. Against the Oilers, Weegar has three points on three games this season. Edmonton has allowed the 12th most goals against over their last 10 games, averaging 3.2 per game. 

Connor McDavid power play point (-105)

Your $10.00 bet would return $19.52.
This play specifically targets the Flames penalty kill more than Connor McDavid. Calgary has the league’s worst penalty kill over their last 10 games, converting at just a 63% rate. That’s really low, and now they face off against the league’s second-best powerplay, who convert at a 27.1% rate and 29% over their previous 10 games.
McDavid has nine powerplay points in his last 10 games. In the three games the Flames and Oilers have met, it wasn’t until their most recent match that McDavid registered a powerplay point. But he has powerplay points in four of six meetings over the last two seasons.

Last Game Recap

Sean Monahan Point – WON – (+$7.50)
Andrei Kuzmenko Over 1.5 Shots on Goal – WON – (+$10.00)
Andrei Kuzmenko Goal – LOSS – (-$5.00)
Kuzmenko failed to light the lamp, but he still finds an assist and his shots on goal prop — hopefully Flames Nation bettors were able to cash in on that one. Monahan makes us wait until the empty net goal to find his point.
All-Time Record: 67-73 (-$89.64)
