The Free Pick:
The Kings would appear to have the edge on the ice, but they haven’t faired well against the Flames in recent years. The Kings are just 7-23-2 in the last 32 meetings between these two teams and 3-13-2 in the last 18 meetings in Calgary. The home team is also 4-1 in the lat five meetings between these two clubs and the favorite is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.
Our pick is the Flames, who are 4-1 in their last five games against the Pacific, while the Kings are just 1-4 in their last five games (dating back to last year, of course) following a win. They’re also 1-5 in their last six games versus a team with a losing record (albeit, it’s only one loss).
