Finally, Calgary Flames hockey is back after a two-day hiatus. Today’s opponent is the team with the second-lowest point total on the season, the San Jose Sharks. 
Tonight’s confirmed goalie matchup: the Sharks’ Mackenzie Blackwood (8-17-3) vs. the Flames’ Dustin Wolf (1-2-1).

Calgary Flames moneyline & Andrei Kuzmenko point (-105)

Your $10.00 bet would return $19.52.
The Calgary Flames come into tonight with a 4-1 record over their last five games, while the San Jose Sharks have a 2-2-1 record over that same span. Historically, the Flames have dominated the Sharks, as they’ve won five straight head-to-head meetings. 
Andrei Kuzmenko has points in two of his short four-game tenure with the Flames, totalling two points. There is no team that Kuzmenko performs better against than the Sharks. In seven career games against the Sharks, he has six goals and 11 points. The Sharks allow the most goals against on the season, averaging 3.9 per game.

Nazem Kadri over 3.5 shots on goal (+100)

Your $10.00 bet would return $20.00.
Nazem Kadri has cleared this line in five of his last 10 games, averaging 3.5 shots on 6.2 shot attempts this season. Kadri performs better at home, clearing in 42% of all games in the Scotiabank Saddledome, averaging 3.6 shots on 6.1 shot attempts. 
Against the Sharks, Kadri has cleared in two of his last three games, averaging 4.7 shots on 6.3 shot attempts per game. The Sharks allow the most shots on goal this season, averaging 35.5 per game — these averages jump to 37.8 when looking at their road splits over their last 10 games. 
San Jose allows 3.0 powerplay opportunities per game in the last 10. With data provided by Hockey Viz, we can see where the Sharks allow the most shots at 5-on-5 and on the Penalty Kill and compare them to where Kadri takes the majority of his shots.
The dark red and dark brown indicate the area teams allow the highest amount of shots. The blue and red  circles indicate where the player took their shot and it landed on goal. As you can see, Kadri gets most of his shots off in front of the net — which is also where the Sharks allow most of theirs.
