Calgary Flames vs Los Angeles Kings Prediction: The Flames Will Bring the Heat

What a game tonight in the City of Angels. We have the Kings battling the Flames for first place in the Pacific and playoff positioning. This game is huge if LA  can win since they are literally 1 point behind Calgary, a team who was in first all year and all of a sudden has turned from the Flames to flame out recently. The Flames have lost three in a row and have a chance as we said of blowing leads they have had all year in the division. This game is huge for both teams especially Calgary as this is a four-game road trip they are starting and with bottom feeders Ducks and Sharks next they sweep this trip they win the division.

Calgary Flames vs Los Angeles Kings Prediction

At the beginning of the year, no one picked the Kings to do anything in the conference let alone be one of the top teams fighting for home ice. When you are a top ten defense and the best team in the league giving up only 28.6 shots a game it sure helps the results. But, with 11 games left this team controls its own destiny because they have played like a team and a family.

With the defense playing great it has made the goalies better, especially Jonathan Quick living up to his last name giving up only 2.6 goals a game. "It's really exciting. You sit back, look at what's at stake and it's exciting for a rookie in the league to have this opportunity and go through it with this group," defenseman Sean Durzi said. "I think we're becoming a pretty big family in there, every single win, every single character moment, every blocked shot, every hit you become closer. To go through this run together is something special."

We look at the Flames and wonder what is wrong with this team all of a sudden. They have blown leads in the last three games including one to these same Kings losing in a shootout. This team prides itself on defense and the last game was embarrassing as it was 3-3 with a few minutes left and turned into a 6-4 loss. This team and the coaches have talked about getting back on track and with a chance to win the division and have home ice (except against the Avalanche) this road trip can secure all that.

Let's not forget Calgary is top ten in all defensive categories including second in the league giving up only 2.5 goals a game so when you give up six which they haven't done in a long time and three late in the third they are not a happy bunch of athletes and will bring their A-game tonight. We expect the defense to be tremendous from the Flames and they are a top ten offense as well as they are one of the best teams in the league and were just embarrassed on home ice and lost their last three at home. Sometimes it's good to get away and a change of scenery should be the difference tonight as well as a quick revenge game from March 31.

The spread has gotten a little high so we suggest you split your wager with Calgary as they are -170 but they are only -110 to win in regulation, so by splitting the wager worst you can do is split. If the game goes into overtime or a shootout happens or if a sweep happens and they win in regulation you save some juice. Let's get back on the winning track as we and the Flames both bring the fire tonight.
