Calgary is 1-6 in their last 7 games on no rest and 1-4 in their last 5 road games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. Montreal is 4-9 in their last 13 games played on 1 days rest and 1-5 in their last 6 Wednesday games while the under is 10-3-2 in their last 15 games against a team with a losing record. The underdog is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made for both sides here as Montreal’s at home and Calgary’s on a back-to-back. With that said, my thoughts on the Montreal Canadiens are well known and haven’t changed over the course of the last few weeks as I think the Habs continue to get all of this undeserved respect. Calgary’s had their ups and downs, but they’re also in need of victories in the midst of the playoff hunt and I just think there’s value with the Flames in this spot.
