Kings vs Flames Betting Prediction

The Flames are going to get the job done here. I was so impressed with what Calgary did in the last game, and I really don’t trust this Kings team. The Kings offense is averaging 3.07 goals, but they are going to struggle to get to that number here. The Flames are going to score at least four goals here and that will be the difference as Calgary is going to get the job done. Back the Flames on the money line to cash.
