The world likes this game to go UNDER, forgetting what we just saw from the Flames offensively. This is also an elimination game which can cause teams to do things out of desperation, leading to defensive lapses. It looks like that Flames top line is heating up with Sean Monahan joining the party in game three. It wasn't so much that the Flames scored six but the manner in which they did it with Winnipeg allowing numerous high end scoring chances. The jets were lazy at best defensively. Their sloppiness led to 3 Flames PP goals.
The Flames have not been without their flaws. There were better in game three but in the first two match-ups it was Calgary giving the Jets all kinds of power play time. I'm not ready to declare the PK fixed until I see a trend, which is not one game. If there was a label to be put on Calgary this season, it's that you don't ever know what you're going to get.
I think we're in for a fast pace and a plus money OVER win.
