The Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets meet Tuesday in game three of the NHL West Qualifying action at the Rogers Place.
The Calgary Flames look for a bounce back victory to take a 2-1 series lead. The Calgary Flames are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Andrew Mangiapane leads Calgary with one goal, Milan Lucic has two assists and Mikael Backlund has seven shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing two goals per game and are killing 92.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Cam Talbot has allowed four goals on 44 shots faced.
The Winnipeg Jets look for back-to-back wins to take a solid 2-1 series lead. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on 7.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Andrew Copp leads Winnipeg with one goal, Adam Lowry has two assists and Kyle Connor has six shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up five goals on 63 shots faced.
The Flames are 5-0 in their last 5 games as a favorite, 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Jets are 5-12 in their last 17 games as an underdog, 11-4 in their last 15 vs. Pacific and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Flames last 5 overall. The under is 10-4-1 in Jets last 15 overall. The favorite is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Calgary Flames dominated game one and have to feel like they let one slip away in game two after getting more shots on goal and tying things up entering the third period. While they're not happy with the game two result, the Flames have to like where they're at right now and with the way they're playing. The Flames have had a great deal of success both in the favorite role and playing on the end of back to backs. The Jets have shown som shaky defensive play in this series as well.
I'll take the Flames and the cheap price.
