Canucks vs. Flames Free Pick
The under is 5-2-2 in the last nine meetings between the Canucks and Flames, who square off at 10:00PM ET tonight when the NHL kicks off its opening night.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Flames are -135 money line favorites over the Canucks, who have odds of +115 to pull off the upset. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 5.5 goals.
These teams have gone under two of the last three meetings. Calgary has improved its already strong defense by acquiring Dougie Hamilton from Boston for a trio of draft picks. Vancouver netminder Ryan Miller is the difference here, while Karri Ramo is a backup for Calgary, but started 32 games and is not your normal No. 2.
