The Calgary Flames continue their lengthy home stand tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. These two teams have exact opposite streaks over their last four games. 
After an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, the Flames have won four straight, averaging 4.5 goals per game. The Maple Leafs have lost four straight, only averaging 2.5 goals per game.

Calgary Flames & Toronto Maple Leafs game total over 6.5 (-125)

These two teams historically scored against one another, covering this total in three of their last four games. Both teams rank in the top 15 in goals for in the last 20 days; Calgary averages 4.0 goals, while Toronto averages 3.3 goals. 
Martin Jones has been a surprising saviour in net for the Maple Leafs this season. Although, he has come back down to earth in his last three games, allowing 3+ goals in all three games. Dan Vladar gets the start for the Flames, who has allowed 3+ in two of his last three games. 

Nazem Kadri point (-138)

Your $10 bet would return $17.27.
Nazem Kadri gets to play the team that drafted him. Since the trade to the Colorado Avalanche in 2019, Kadri has points in five of seven games against the Leafs, totalling eight points.
Besides Blake Coleman, Kadri is the hottest current Flame, as he’s on a seven-game point streak, totalling 10 points. Over his last 16 home games, Kadri registers a point in 13 games, totalling 18 points. 

William Nylander goal (+115)

Your $10 bet would return $21.50.
Willy Styles returns to the city where he was born. Since receiving his new eight-year $92 million contract four games ago, Nylander has yet to register a point. What better place to find that first tally than in your hometown?
Having 12 of his 21 goals come on the road this season, Nylander has found better success away from Scotiabank Arena. Nylander has two goals in two of his last three games against the Flames — oddly enough, tonight’s starting goalie, Dan Vladar, was in the net for both of these games. 
Want a fun, additional bet? Sprinkle $5 on the DRAW (for the game to go to overtime) at +330 odds, would return $21.50. These two teams have gone to the extra frame in four of their last six meetings. 

Last Game Recap

Florida Panthers Money Line and Matthew Tkachuk Point – LOSS – (-10.00)
Matthew Tkachuk over 3.5 Shots on Goal – LOSS – (-10.00)
Matthew Tkachuk finished with four shot attempts but only landed one on net. The Panthers ended their 10-game winning streak against the Red Wings, so it didn’t affect us that he had an assist taken away from him on the Gustav Forsling goal. 
All-Time Record: 13-13 (-$22.72)
