    Calgary vs Colorado: Struggling Squads Square Off in Denver

    Calgary  vs Colorado: Struggling Squads Square Off in Denver

    Colorado Avalanche: Hard work has not translated to wins

    Even thought they have posted a dismal 3-7-1 record out of the starting gate, Colorado has been competitive as five of their seven losses were decided by just one goal. Possesssing a potent power play early in the year, with five goals on ten chances during their first three contests, the Avalanche have been shooting blanks with just three goals during their last 46 man advantage situations. With young talent like Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, mixed in with the offseason additions of Carl Soderberg and Francois Beauchemin, plus a solid core of skilled veterans, Colorado has the firepower to light up the scoreboard on any given night and the conditions are ripe tonight.

    Calgary Flames: Barely flickering early on during a dismal 2015-16 NHL season start

    A Battle of Alberta win may be a much-needed spark for a Calgary crew that looks like a shell of the playoff team from a year ago. The Flames roll into the US Rocky Mountains following a hard fought 5-4 win over provincial rival Edmonton on Saturday night. Calgary's third win of the season, they are now 3-8-1, came with eight seconds left on the clock in a crazy contest that was heavily influenced by the zebras. Goaltending continues to be a huge problem in the Stampede City as the Flames have allowed a league high 50 goals including four or more in nine of their eleven games. While D-Man T.J. Brodie returning from injury helps - fixing the defense won't happen overnight.

    Colorado vs Calgary Goal Total Call: This contest sets up as a possible slump buster for players on both teams as Karri Ramo (1-3 GGA 4.27) faces Semyon Varlamov (2-5-1 GAA 3.32) in the battle between the pipes. Recently sent down and then recalled from AHL Stockton during a one-week span, Ramo has allowed four goals twice and five goals once during four appearances this season. Valarmov has been brutal as well allowing three or more goals in six of his eight starts. More than four goals have been scored in ten of the past eleven contests between these squads that really don’t care much for one another. Having little faith in the defense of either squad, and expecting a high tempo battle with plenty of scoring chances, we are backing OVER 4.5 total goals with a 500 unit wager on alternate goal total price posted at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook.
