Flames vs. Panthers Prediction

I’m on Calgary here. It’s not often the Panthers lose back-to-back games, but the Flames have owned Florida in this matchup in recent years and that’s been when the Panthers have been among the NHL’s top teams. Calgary’s on fire, no pun intended, and the Panthers have played in a ton of close games as of late. The Flames made some moves at the deadline, but I think there’s enough here for Calgary to steal this one. Give me Calgary.
