Calgary Flames Fantasy Spin
Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 23 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Bruins on Friday night. The Flames possessed a 3-1 lead within the first three and a half minutes of the contest, yet they could not hang on for the victory, allowing Boston to score three unanswered goals. Talbot was not able to hold off the league-leading Bruins despite a reduced shot total. The loss pegs him with a 9-10-1 record, a 2.83 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage headed into next game.
Detroit Red Wings Fantasy Spin
Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 40 shots in Friday's 4-1 road loss against the New York Islanders. Bernier did a nice job for the Red Wings, giving them a chance to win late. The Islanders led just 2-1 with 2:35 left in regulation after Anthony Mantha struck on the power play. The goaltender has emerged as the No. 1 backstop for the Red Wings, and he might be a valuable trade chip for the organization leading up to Monday's deadline.
The Flames are 4-1 in their last five road games and have won six of seven against the Red Wings. The favorite is also 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams.
The Red Wings are 12-47 in their last 59 games overall and are 2-8 in their last 10 games playing on one day of rest.
The over has been great in previous meetings between these two teams, going 5-0-3 in the last eight meetings overall and 4-0-1 in the last five meetings in Detroit. The over is also 18-7-1 in the Flames’ last 26 games overall, is 6-0 in their last six road games and is 5-0 in their last five games playing on only one day of rest. On the other side, the over is 3-1-2 in the Red Wings’ last six games following a loss of three or more goals.
