The Calgary Flames have been on a tear of late. They have won nine out of their last 11 games, including two in a row. They’re looking like they’re in good shape as the playoffs arrive. Oddly enough, their most recent loss was against the Nashville Predators in a shootout – the team they face on Tuesday.

The Predators have since lost their last two games and four out of their last six overall. With playoff seeding on the table for both of these teams, neither will want to walk away with a loss.

Flames vs. Predators NHL Betting Odds

Calgary has gotten stronger down the stretch of this season. They have won six out of their last seven games on the road. They are also 10-4 in their last 14 against teams in the Central Division. Unfortunately, Nashville has proven to be better against the Flames. Calgary has lost four straight in this series and the underdog is 17-4 in the last 21 meetings between them. Calgary is currently listed as the favorite, which doesn’t bode well with that trend.

Meanwhile, the Predators have a record of 5-2 in their last seven games when entering a matchup on just one day of rest. Unfortunately, they are a measly 1-5 in their past six when coming into a contest as a listed underdog.

Calgary Flames

The last time that the Flames had a great regular season (in 2019) they were quickly dismantled in the playoffs by the Colorado Avalanche. There are similarities to this current season that they are having but they don’t intend to just ride their way to the end. This is a group that wants to win as many games as possible down the stretch, be focused and make sure that history doesn’t repeat itself.

The Flames are watching a few of their players have stellar seasons including Andrew Mangiapane with his 35 goals. He and the offense have led the way of late as they’ve scored at least four goals in eight of their last 10. They haven’t scored more than two in a game versus Nashville this season, so that is something they’ll aim to overcome on Tuesday.

Nashville Predators

The Predators have clinched a postseason spot yet. They remain just one point above the Dallas Stars and three points above the ninth-seeded Vegas Golden Knights. Nashville could even get themselves thrown up into the sixth seeded due to the Los Angeles Kings being just two points ahead of them. Bottom line, Nashville has a lot at stake here. Luckily, they have a very high-powered offense. Roman Josi, Matt Duchene and Filip Forsberg all have over 80 registered points on the year. Two other players have over 58 as well right below them.

The Predators will always have guys out there that can threaten a defense and that is how they can take down the Flames in this one.
