The under is 5-1 in Flames last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Canucks last 4 overall. The under is 4-0 in Canucks last 4 home games. The Flames are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Calgary Flames are not only playing the better hockey entering this game, but they've won three of the four meetings this year against the Canucks and have dominated in the favorite role. The Vancouver Canucks just can't get out of their own way and a lot of it has to do with a defense that stinks up the joint more times than not. The Flames and the cheap price here seems like one of the better options on Monday night.
