Last season, Calgary won the regular season in the West, however, in the first round of the playoffs, the team of Bill Peters lost to Colorado. Thus, in the Canadian club, the revenge-seeking moods are most likely strong. However, the results of the Flames in recent matches cannot set fans up for optimism: in their last four meetings, they managed to score just three goals. And in the previous game, Calgary was defeated by Vegas (0: 6).
Colorado, on the other hand, has won four of their last five matches. The Avalanches managed to more or less establish the game without their leaders: Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen. Both forwards are currently injured. Also in the infirmary are Tyson Jost, Colin Wilson, and Matt Calvert. Based on this, I would not risk betting on guests in the upcoming meeting. Calgary has a sufficient margin of safety to overcome the crisis and win on its site.
