The Arizona Coyotes remain at the bottom of the NHL’s standings with 49 points on the season, and Calgary atop Pacific Division at 45-20-9 for 99 points. Calgary’s more than likely to win the Pacific, but who they will face in the playoffs is still to be determined.

The Flames last played on Thursday in a 6-1 defeat against Vegas. Arizona’s coming over from Vancouver where they also suffered a big loss, falling 7-1 to the Canucks Thursday.

Puck drop at the Scotiabank Saddledome goes at 10 p.m. EDT with the home Flames a -500 favourite on the moneyline and the over-under pegged at six on the NHL odds.

Coyotes vs. Flames NHL Betting Odds

The Flames have owned Arizona as of late with wins in eight of their last 10 meetings and a 2-0 record this season. Both games this year ended in 4-2 victories for Calgary. The Coyotes are entering Saturday on a five-game skid too, and are also 0-5 in their last five games in Calgary. The Flames meanwhile have gone on a home slump with a 1-4 record in their last five home outings despite a 22-9-7 home record this season.

When it comes to the total, there’s something about Saturday and high-scoring with Calgary. Eleven of the last 15 Flames games played on a Saturday have gone over the total.

Arizona Coyotes

Five consecutive losses is bad enough, but it’s worse for Arizona considering the combined score in the losses was 29-6. Arizona’s allowed at least five goals in all of the losses, and at least six in their last three outings while scoring more than one goal once. The Coyotes are dead last with 2.45 goals per game this season, and third-worst with 3.7 allowed per night.

Andrew Ladd scored Arizona’s lone goal Thursday and Phil Kessel picked up his team-leading 38th assist. Kessel’s third on the Coyotes with 45 points. Only Clayton Keller (63) and Nick Schmaltz (52) have over 50 on the season as Arizona gets set for their 75th game.

Calgary Flames

Calgary too allowed six goals in a losing effort Thursday, but unlike Arizona the Flames’ loss broke a five-game win streak. Dillon Dube opened the game’s scoring for Calgary, and from there it was all Vegas despite the shots ending 36-25 in favour of the Flames.

Thursday was only the third outing this month for Johnny Gaudreau in which he didn’t record multiple points. Gaudreau has a team and career-high 101 points this season which is tied for fourth in the NHL.

Jacob Markstrom should be between the pipes for Calgary, who is looking for win 35 this year.
