The Edmonton Oilers and the Calgary Flames will meet again at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary to play the Game 2 of the playoffs 2nd round in the West. The Flames beat the Oilers in an electric Game 1. The Calgary Flames got a hat trick from Matthew Tkachuk to outlast the Edmonton Oilers 9-6 after a blistering game that saw the most goals in a postseason game in 29 years.
Edmonton have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 23-22 on the road so far this season. They have 53-37 overall record ranking 2nd in the Pacific. Edmonton is 21-7-0 against the Pacific Division. The Oilers are 17-7-2 in games they serve fewer penalty minutes than their opponents.

In their last 10 games the Oilers are 6-4, averaging 4 goals, 6.5 assists, 4.4 penalties and 11.4 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game.
The Flames have won 4 of their last 5 games and are 28-17 on the road this season with a 54-24-11 record overall, ranking 1st in the Pacific. The Flames are 34-17-6 in Western Conference play.

Edmonton are 11-5 SU in their last 16 games.
Edmonton are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Calgary.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Calgary's last 5 games against Edmonton.
Calgary are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.
These teams forgot about defense in game 1 as they scored 15 goals but the Flames looked unstoppable but they don't want to be in goals exchange with the Oilers who are averaging 4 goals per game in their last 10 games. The Flames are the #1 defense in the NHL so expect more control for this game. I'm staying with the home team again to win.
