Colorado Avalanche vs. Calgary Flames

Where: Scotiabank Saddledome

When: Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 9:00 pm ET

We have a Western Conference NHL matchup on a Tuesday night to discuss when the Colorado Avalanche meets the Calgary Flames for game two of their three-game season series. Colorado won game one of this series at home by a score of 5-3, and the Flames will want to avenge that early-season loss by beating the Avalanche in this contest.

Avalanche Win Four of Last Five Games

Colorado is firing on all cylinders and has won four of its previous five games and is just three points behind the St Louis Blues for the top spot in the Central Division standings. Home wins over the Nashville Predators, and Columbus Blue Jackets with road victories over Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks have placed the Avalanche in a position to take the lead in the Central. Nathan McKinnon leads Colorado with 29 points and a club-high 13 goals with six power-play goals. Defenseman Cale Maker leads the Avalanche with 17 assists this season.

The Colorado power-play unit has a below-average power-play success rate of 11.6 percent success rate while the penalty-kill unit could use some work with its below-average kill rate of 77.8 percent this season.

The Avalanche will likely look to Anton Bibeau to patrol the cage, and he’s 1-0-0 this season with a 3.27 GAA and 88 percent save percentage. Bibeau stopped 28 of 32 shots in a 5-4 overtime victory in his last start against the Vancouver Canucks.

Flames Four Game Losing Streak

Calgary enters this matchup hoping to end a four-game losing streak after successive losses to the St Louis Blues, Dallas Stars, Arizona Coyotes, and Vegas Golden Knights. The losses to the Coyotes and Golden Knights were both shutout losses on the road, and that seems strange for a side scoring an average of 2.52 goals per game this season. The Flames are sixth in the Pacific Division standings and just six points away from division leader Edmonton. Matthew Tkachuk leads Calgary with 20 points and a team high ten goals. Johnny Gaudreau leads the Flames with 13 assists this season.

The Flames have an average, 17.3 percent power-play success rate with a top-notch penalty kill success rate, successfully stopping 85.5 percent of its penalties this season.

David Rittich is likely crouching in the crease for Calgary, and he’s 9-5-3 this season with two shutouts to his credit. The veteran netminder has a 2.71 GAA and stops 91,4 percent of the pucks shot his way this season. Rittich is on a personal, two-game losing streak and allowed two goals on 23 shots faced in a 3-0 road loss to Arizona.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Colorado is playing great and is hoping to get Grubaeur back in nets sooner rather than later. In the meanwhile, the Avalanche has won four of its last five games and have scored 25 goals over its previous five games and is averaging 3.65 goals per game this season. Calgary can't seem to buy a goal lately and has scored just eight goals over their past five games. That isn't going to win many games, and it won't be enough to beat the Avalanche on Tuesday night, either. I'm going with Colorado in this matchup.

Prediction: Colorado

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Goaltending hasn't been the problem lately for the Flames; it has been the offense. Or I should say lack of offense. Colorado will score enough to win this game, but I expect Rittich to stand tall like he usually does night in and night out for Calgary. Colorado has allowed 16 goals over the last five, and I hope the Flames to score a couple of goals in this matchup. I see this as a 3-2 game and will be playing the UNDER in this contest.
