It’s a quick turnaround for the Calgary Flames, as they have a date with the Buffalo Sabres tonight after playing in Vancouver just last night. In their meeting earlier this season, the Calgary Flames won 4-3 — can they repeat that tonight?
Today’s expected goaltender matchup for our highlighted game:
The Buffalo Sabres’ Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (23-18-3) vs The Calgary Flames’ Dustin Wolf (3-4-1).

Calgary Flames team total under 3.5 goals (-180)

Your $18.00 bet would return $28.00.
The Flames are up against one of the league’s hottest goaltenders since the calendar flipped to 2024, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen. Since January 1st, Luukkonen has led the league of starting goalies to play over 1000 minutes, in goals against average (2.15) and save percentage (.923%).
Now, Luukkonen got shelled in his last outing, allowing eight goals to the Edmonton Oilers. Before this outlier, Luukkonen had yet to allow four goals in thirteen straight games, dating back to February 19th. In five of their most recent seven games, Calgary has yet to reach this number. 

Tage Thompson point (-143)

Your $10.00 bet would return $7.00.
Tage Thompson is currently on a four-game point streak and has eight points in his last seven games. On the road this season, Thompson has a point in 64% of all road games. 
Against the Flames, Thompson has points in four straight and both games in the Scotiabank Saddledome over the last two seasons. The Flames are allowing 4.0 goals against over their last 10 games, ranking as the fourth most in the league.
