The Flames looked flat offensively in their first game, scoring only two goals, and will have a hard time getting past Anaheim’s goalies, who have a combined .961 save percentage. The Flames also struggled defensively in their last game, giving up five goals. Even though the Ducks haven’t lit up the scoreboard so far, they won’t have a hard time scoring against the Flames, so go with the Ducks to pick up the win.
Full-Game Total Pick
The Ducks have done well defensively through two games, giving up 1.5 goals per game. The Flames weren’t good offensively last season and seem to have picked up where they left off, so don’t expect them to score a lot of goals against the Ducks in this game. The Flames struggled defensively in their last game, but they will bounce back with a better performance in this game. With the Ducks averaging 2.5 goals per game in two games, don’t expect them to score enough goals to push the score over the total. The Ducks and Flames played under the total in seven of their last 10 meetings.
