Went down looking last night, with our Game of the Week pick on Dallas losing 4-0 to the Predators. Dallas was all over Nashville early but couldn’t beat Rinne and when Nashville scored the first goal they took the momentum and ran with it, adding a powerplay and penalty shot goal putting Dallas pretty much out of reach with Rinne playing well. The Coyotes also beat LA in a convincing win.
3 games tonight and just one play.
2 UNIT = Detroit Red Wings @ Calgary Flames – RED WINGS TO WIN (-104)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.92 units)
The Detroit Red Wings are 12-9-5 on the year, and 3-5-2 on the road. The Flames are 9-11-4 on the season and 6-5-2 at home. Neither team has been playing well lately, with the Red Wings losing two straight to the Blue Jackets and the Flames losers of three straight games. Detroit has gone 3-1-2 over their last 6 games, with points in 5 of 6 (two shootout losses). Calgary has been outscored 13-3 over their last 3 games, and are just 2-4-1 over their last 7 games. Take note that Miikka Kiprusoff, who is expected to start for Calgary, is just 3-5-2 on the season with a 3.43 GAA and .867 SV%. Jimmy Howard is expected for Detroit and he is 10-7-4 with a 2.46 GAA and .914 SV%. Although Calgary won their first meeting of this year the Red Wings are 7-3 in their last 10 meetings overall and 5-1 in their last 6 meetings in Calgary. Detroit has been off since Sunday and I think Mike Babcock will have them ready for this one. I like Detroit at close to even money in Calgary.
