The Carolina Hurricanes and Calgary Flames face off on Thursday night in an NHL showdown at Scotiabank Saddledome. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Hurricanes vs Flames prediction.

Hurricanes Playing on Tired Legs

The Hurricanes are going to be playing on tired legs after they faced off against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night. On Monday against the Winnipeg Jets, the Hurricanes only scored one goal and they ended up losing by a goal. The Hurricanes are averaging 3.38 goals while their defense is giving up 3.21 goals per game. The offense is ranked 8th and they are going to need the offense to be good here. Sebastian Aho has scored eight goals and added 14 assists so far this season.

The Flames looked awful in the last game against the Minnesota Wild and they gave up five goals. In the first two periods, they gave up four goals. Mikael Backlund scored a goal but it wasn’t enough. The Flames are averaging 2.92 goals while their defense is giving up 3.36 goals per game. The offense is ranked 21st while the defense is ranked 21st. Elias Lindholm has scored seven goals and added 10 assists so far this season.

Hurricanes vs Flames Betting Prediction

The Flames offense is averaging 2.92 goals per game and they are going to struggle to get the offense going here. The Hurricanes on tired legs are going to really struggle to get the offense going here and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. There will only be 2 or 3 goals scored here, and this game is going to stay under the total. I love this play a lot.
