The Flames are coming off a dramatic loss to Philadelphia on Monday afternoon. They’re a shot volume team that can’t quite take advantage of that shot volume. Meanwhile, the Coyotes are in the NHL’s bottom third, but they’re a young, scrappy team that’s playing loose, fast hockey.
The Coyotes are 4-0-3 since the start of February, while the Flames are 2-3-2.

Primary Bet – Total goals under 5.5 – (+125)

A $1 bet would pay out $2.25. The Flames are a shot volume team, but the Coyotes are starting Karel Vejmelka, who is sneaky good (and who a shot volume opponent seems to fit nicely based on his history as an NHL netminder). The Flames will probably out-shoot the Coyotes handily, but fail to score a ton. Given the situation, a 3-1 or 3-2 game feels like what we’re in for.

Secondary Bet – Elias Lindholm anytime goalscorer – (+175)

A $1 bet pays out $2.75. Lindholm just had a baby (hooray!) but hasn’t yet used his newfound Dad Energy to score a goal. He’s due for one, Dad Energy or not, and this game seems a good time for him to break out.

Tertiary Bet – Matias Maccelli 1+ points – (-110)

A $1 pays out $1.90. As Mike Gould keeps reminding me, Maccelli leads all NHL rookies in assists. In the absence of a Juuso Valimaki Revenge Goal – we couldn’t find posted odds on Valimaki to score or get a point – go with Maccelli as your token opponent bet. He always seems to get a point one way or another.
