The Flames are off a 5-1 loss to the Canucks. That marked their third consecutive game which finished above the total. I’m expecting a lower-scoring affair here though. We do have to “lay some extra juice,” in order to play “under 5.5″ However, I feel that price is still fair. In fact, given the offensive struggles of both these teams, the number could easily have been five. For starters, the Flames have seen the ‘under’ go a lucrative 67-48 the last 100+ times that they were off three or more consecutive games which finished above the total. More recently, note that the Flames have seen the “under” go 3-1-1 in this season’s “non-conference” games (24-14-3 L2+ yrs) and an even better 6-1-1 when coming off a divisional game. The Canes are off a 3-2 loss last game. They’ve now scored three or fewer goals in nine of their last 10 games. Over that 10-game stretch, they’re averaging only two goals. Not surprisingly, the “under” was 6-3-1 in those games. For the season, the Canes are averaging 2.4 goals. That’s actually more than the Flames, who are a managing only 2.3 per game, including a mere 2.1 here at Calgary. With Carolina’s last three visits here (1-0, 3-0 and 4-1) all falling below the total, consider the UNDER. -Ben Burns
