The Calgary Flames’ offence has come alive in recent games, and that could be bad news for a visiting Dallas Stars team that has struggled to put the puck in the net. The Flames seek their fifth win in six games Wednesday night at Scotiabank Saddledome, a hot streak built largely on an offence that has produced a whopping 23 goals over their past four wins. Dallas, on the other hand, has lost four of five while scoring just four goals in those defeats.

Stars vs Flames Betting Analysis

The Flames are hefty favourites in this one, which should come as no surprise given how the teams are headed in opposite directions. Calgary has reeled off five win in its previous six home games and is a red-hot 4-1 in its past five vs. Western Conference opponents. But the Stars have enjoyed a great deal of success in the head-to-head series, having won five of their previous seven visits to Scotiabank Saddledome.

Totals bettors might be able to take advantage of Wednesday’s number, which sits at 5.5. The Flames have been an offensive force of late, and have moved all the way to eighth overall in goals per game (3.38). And while the Stars have struggled to produce at the offensive end, they still have four or more goals in 11 of their 25 games this season. And the goals have been plentiful in Calgary, with the teams going 8-3-1 O/U in their last 12 meetings there.

Dallas Stars

The Stars come into the game with one of the best goals-against averages in the league (2.68), but that mark will be put to the test Wednesday with goaltender Landon Bow expected to make his first NHL start. Anton Khudobin has started the last five games with regular starter Ben Bishop out due to injury, and turned aside 30 shots in Tuesday’s 1-0 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Bow stopped 14 shots in 31 minutes of relief in his NHL debut Nov. 21.

Calgary Flames

The Flames have been red-hot in November (pardon the pun), and would likely be even more prolific if their opponents were a little more undisciplined. Calgary ranks third in the NHL with a 30-percent power-play conversion rate for the month, but their 30 man-advantage chances in November are second-fewest in the league. The Flames are also the hottest over play at home, having gone 10-1-1 O/U in their last 12 games at Scotiabank Saddledome.
