Your Calgary Flames face off against the Chicago Blackhawks, a team they lost to earlier this month, 4-3. Both teams come into tonight’s game on a bit of a losing streak. Calgary has lost four straight, and Chicago has lost three in a row.
The expected goaltending match-up is Jacob Markstrom (13-13-2) against Petr Mrazek (12-18-1).

Calgary Flames moneyline & over 5.5 (+125)

Your $10 bet would return $22.00.
The Flames have historically struggled against the Blackhawks, losing four straight, but tonight, this trend stops. Calgary dropped their lost last game to Columbus, who rank in the bottom five of the league’s standings. Calgary should look to get right after an embarrassing loss last game against the league’s bottom team in the standings, the Chicago Blackhawks. 
There’s no shy of goals when these teams meet, going over the 5.5-game total in eight straight head-to-head match-ups. The Flames have found their scoring touch despite this losing streak, going over this total in three of their last four games. The Blackhawks have only gone over in two of their last four.

Yup, you got that right. We are going right back to his shots on goal prop.
MacKenzie Weegar has cleared in four straight games, averaging four shots on eight shot attempts per game. On home ice this season, he clears at a 61% clip, averaging 3.1 shots on 6.6 shot attempts per game. Against the Blackhawks, Weegar has cleared five of his last six games, averaging 3.5 shots on 5.8 shot attempts per game. Chicago allows the ninth most shots on goal to defenceman this season, averaging 8.6 shots per game.
