Flames vs Blues prediction

The Flames are riding a four-game losing streak where the defense has gotten blasted in every game. The Blues have won 6 of their last 8 games, and they're at home, where 21 of their 38 wins have taken place. The Blues are in better form and unlike the Flames, they still have an outside chance of sneaking into the playoff conversation, especially if they can keep racking up the points. The Blues beat the Flames a couple of months ago. The price is reasonable. Give me the Blues.
