Pick

The Flames are coming off of a win in their last game, but they have really struggled over the last couple of weeks. Nashville has lost two of their last three games and they are 2-4-0 on the road. Calgary has had plenty of issues on defense, as they are allowing 3.64 goals against per game, while Nashville has allowed 11 goals in their last three games. I don’t love how Calgary has looked this season, but I am going to take them to get a second win in a row here.
