The Blues have been great so far this season and have won 6 games in a row scoring an average of 5 goals per game while allowing an average of only 1.8 goals on that strecht. On the other hand, the Flames have been struggling to get a win as they have lost 5 straight games including the loss at home against the Blues. Calgary is a great team but it's hard to go against the Blues at this moment as they're playing great defense. I'm going with the Blues to win at home.
