In their last 10 games the Flames are 4-2-4, averaging 3.2 goals, 5.6 assists, 4.6 penalties and 11.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.9 goals per game.
The Canucks have won 3 of their last 4 games and are 9-7-2 on the road so far ranking 6th in the Pacific. Vancouver is 16-15-3 overall with a 10-2-0 record against the Pacific Division. The Canucks have a -12 scoring differential, with 118 total goals scored and 130 conceded.

Vancouver are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Calgary are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Calgary's last 6 games against Vancouver.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Calgary's last 9 games at home.
The Canucks have been up and down this season but they have played well lately winning 3 of their last 4 games and scoring almost 5 goals per game on that strecht. On the other hand, the Flames have been struggling offensively but have won 4 of their last 6 games. The last time these faced each other the Canucks beat them in overtime 4-3 but I expect the Flames to take cara if business at home.
