The Devils were sure impressive in the last game, but the Flames defense has also really stepped up. The Flames in the last game were able to secure the 4-1 victory and they are going to lockdown with the defense again here. The Devils are going to really struggle to get the offense going here, and that will be the difference here as the Flames are going to get the job done. Back the Flames on the money line.
