Toronto Maple Leafs are accepting the team of Calgary Flames, which are one of the surprises of this month. Flames are doing a great month and they wrote down a lot of wins for the records. But we must say that the same did Toronto Maple Leafs as well.
The main advantage which Maple Leafs are using is that they are almost unbreakable at home. They are playing so stable and solid when they are playing at home that almost no team can win in their home. Calgary are mainly a home team as well, they are strong when they are playing in their own hall, but when they go away they are just losing the game.
We are going to use this home factor as our main reason of thinking that Toronto Maple Leafs will take this game. Moreover, in the past 3 home games the home team achieved 3 straight wins. They surprised Buffalo Sabres 2 days ago at home and now they will try to do it against Calgary again. Calgary are also in a good shape as they won against Montreal Canadiens a day ago. It was easy game for them, despite the initially odds. We are on the opinion that the game will be tough but at the moment more prepared to take it seems to be Toronto Maple Leafs and we will go for them.
Amazing games for Calgary in the past few days at home. They were totally outclassed a strong teams like St. Louis Blues and Winnipeg Jets. They are surely one of the great teams at home. Now they will have also a home game, this time against Colorado Avalanche.
The game will be more difficult than the game against Winnipeg Jets. Calgary may be in a good serie of home wins but Colorado Avalanche are playing good, actually very good in the past few days as well, not only at home, they are playing also good away from home. They did a great win against Vancouver Canucks. We know that Canucks are not the best team in the conference but they are still a team who is playing well.
The game seems to be difficult and equal. We are expecting a tough and closed game, maybe the winner will win with no more than 1 goal difference, it is not excluded to see overtime as well. We will make the pick one idea more sure with putting the final winner after OT. From the head to head games, we can see many wins for Calgary Flames. From the past 5 games at home, last 4 of them finished with wins for Calgary. They definitely are having a great advantage playing at home and we think we should use it.
Los Angeles Kings are in an amazing shape recently. They have won against Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks away with great results: 5-2, 5-0, respectively. They totally smashed both teams, which are leading the Western Conference among with St. Louis Blues.
Now in front of the team from Los Angeles will be the Rangers from New York. New York Rangers are nothing serious right now. They are fifth in their conference as they will surely play in the playoffs at the end of the season. They are mixing the good games with bad ones and at all they are really unstable.
Here we believe that Los Angeles Kings will continue their streak and will take this game easily. New York Rangers can be very dangerous but right now we do not believe that Kings are capable of losing this game at home, moreover when they showed they can play on one very high level against the top teams.
Calgary Flames are accepting in their home the team of Winnipeg Jets. Both teams are among the worst performing teams in the Western Conference along with Edmonton Oilers. It will be definitely a battle, possibly many goals.
Calgary Flames surprised everyone as they won the last round against St. Louis Blues with 7-4. They totally outclassed St. Louis Blues and they score 7 goals. This is something amazing, moreover when you are seeing a team which is among the last 3 teams in the conference.
At the moment both teams are with equal games and equal points. They are completely equalized and we are not excluding to see a draw in the regular time. Of course, this will be the reason to pick the winner including the overtime. The odds are not that good, but they are still fine to chase them. If you want you can try Draw no Bet as well, it is not that bad option.
In the last games, we can see that Calgary Flames are playing pretty well at home. While Winnipeg Jets are one of the weakest teams when they have to play away. Head to head games are showing split advantage, it will be really an interesting game, but we are giving a vote of confidence to Calgary Flames.
A game from the Western Conference between the teams of Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings. Both teams are making incredible season so far and they will definitely keep their places for the playoffs at the end of the regular season.
Chicago Blackhawks are in a serie of 2 losses in a row. Those losses came away from home and it is some kind of normal. They were playing against tough teams like St.Louis Blues and Dallas Stars. Against St.Louis Blues they had a small chance because they lost by penalties.
Los Angeles Kings are a little bit weaker than Chicago Blackhawks. They are 3 points behind them but this is because Chicago lost the past two games while Los Angeles won one of them. It will be tough game, but we are expecting a domination from the Blackhawks. They are the better team right now and despite the bad streak of 2 losses in a row, they must take this game, so they can remain on the top of the league.
Moreover, they are playing really good at home and even from the head to head stats we can see that the last 5 games there are 4 wins for Blackhawks. They are the favourite for us, but we will not risk that much so we will put to win the game including overtime.
