Calgary improved to 1-1-0 with a 6-3 home win over the Jets on Saturday. T.J. Brodie led the way with two goals and two assists. Johnny Gaudreau contributed a goal and three assists. Mikael Backlund, Michael Ferland and Kris Versteeg each added one goal. Mike Smith made 25 saves in the victory.

The Ducks lost a 3-2 overtime game at home to the Flyers on Saturday. Cam Fowler and Antointe Vermette contributed the Anaheim goals. Ondrej Kase and Josh Manson each recorded an assist. John Gibson made 34 saves to get the win.

Anaheim swept Calgary in a four-game playoff series last year and won eight of nine meetings on the season. The over-under went 3-4-2.

Bet on Flames vs. Ducks

This is a prime revenge spot after Anaheim had the Flames' number last year. Calgary is on the right track after blasting Winnipeg in its last game and will surely be up for this matchup. Anaheim dropped a very winnable game two nights ago to Philadelphia and we believe Smith and the Flames will send the Ducks to another home loss.
