Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins continue on the road and will visit the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. These teams met twice last season and the Flames beat the Pens in both games 2-1 at home and 4-0 on the road.

Pittsburgh Penguins

The Penguins have won 4 of their first 6 games this season and are 1-2 on the road. Last season they were 22-10-5 on the road with a 42-22-10 overall ranking third in the Metropolitan division. The Penguins were 12-8-2 against opponents in the Metropolitan. Pittsburgh ranked fourth in the Eastern Conference averaging 5.7 assists per game, led by Kris Letang with 0.8.

Letang led the Penguins with 55 total assists and has 62 points. Sidney Crosby had 11 points over the last 10 games for Pittsburgh.

In their last 10 games the Penguins are 6-4, averaging 4.9 goals, 5.9 assists, 3.1 penalties and seven penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game with a .902 save percentage.

Calgary Flames

The Flames have won 4 of their first 5 games of the season and are 3-1 at home so far ranking 1st in the Pacific. They're coming from a tough game against the Carolina Hurricanes where they came up with the victory 3-2 in overtime with a goal from Tyler Toffoli.

Nazem Kadri has scored 4 goals with 5 assists  and 9 points for the Flames. Rasmus Andersson leads the team with six assists over the past 5 games.

In their last 10 games the Flames are 5-5, averaging 3 goals, 4.9 assists, 6.5 penalties and 17.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Pittsburgh are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

Pittsburgh are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games against Calgary.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Pittsburgh's last 7 games on the road.

Pittsburgh are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Calgary.

Calgary are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Calgary's last 5 games against Pittsburgh.

Calgary are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Penguins have been pretty good so far this season scoring 4.8 goals per game but are 4-8 in the last 12 games vs Calgary. The Flames are having a great start of the season winning 4 of their first 5 games and 3 of their 4 games at home. The Penguins will be playing on back-to-back games while the Flames have 3 days of rest so I expect them to take advantage of that and have an easy win at home. 

PICK: Flames -1.5 (+145)
