Penguins vs. Flames Pick

NHL Predictions: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Calgary Flames? 11/2/17

Are the Pittsburgh Penguins capable of going on the road tonight and picking up a win over the Calgary Flames at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Flames are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -130 to win, while the Penguins are getting a money line of +110 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 6 goals. Tonight’s contest takes place from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.

Pittsburgh is coming off a 3-2 win at Edmonton on Tuesday night to snap a two-game losing streak. The Penguins are 8-5-1 overall now and 4-5 on the road. Pittsburgh is posting 2.79 goals per game this year while allowing 3.71 per game. Phil Kessel is leading the team with four goals and 11 assists while Evgeni Malkin has six goals with eight assists. Matt Murray is 8-2-1 in net with a 2.95 GAA and a .908 save percentage.

The Flames are coming off a 2-1 win over the Capitals on Sunday night to end a two-game losing streak as well. Calgary is now 6-6 overall and 2-4 at home. The Flames are putting up just 2.25 goals per game this season while allowing 2.75 per game. Johnny Gaudreau is leading the team with three goals and 12 assists while Sean Monahan has six goals and four assists. Mike Smith is 6-5 in net with a 2.31 GAA and a .931 save percentage.

Bet on Penguins vs. Flames

Calgary has surprisingly won four straight meetings with the Penguins, but I think Pittsburgh gets the victory tonight. The Pens have won five of their last seven meetings in Calgary and the Flames have lost 10 of their last 11 against teams with a winning record. Calgary just doesn’t score enough for my liking and I think the Penguins are going to find the net a few times tonight. The public betting for this game is strongly with the Penguins and I am with them.
