Flames vs Canucks: NHL 2015-16 Puck Betting Season Opens

Flames vs Canucks: NHL 2015-16 Puck Betting Season Opens
Puck betting fans rejoice as the 2015-16 National Hockey League season opens with a four-pack of games tonight. Montreal vs Toronto and New York vs Chicago share the early game spotlight before the Calgary vs Vancouver and San Jose vs Los Angeles contests close out the opening night action. We are focused on Flames vs Canucks contest here as these teams rekindle the fire they built during their NHL Conference Quarterfinals battle last season. Puck drop for this Pacific Division rivalry battle is set for 10:00 PM ET on October 7, 2015, at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta. We like the Flames here.

Rebuilding process is ahead of schedule in the Stampede City

As clearly indicated by their +8700 ML futures price to win the Stanley Cup back in October last year, not much was expected of the Calgary Flames last season. The Flames went from perceived pretenders to contenders as they finished third in the Pacific Division with a 45-30-7 record. Calgary went on a 7-3 run to close out their season prior to taking out the Canucks by a 4-2 margin in the NHL Conference Quarterfinals during the first round of the playoffs. A superior Anaheim Ducks squad ended the Flames surprisingly solid season with a 4-1 series win in the Conference Semifinals. Calgary is one of the best coached teams in the NHL and they have a nice mix of veterans to go along with several rising young guns. If their goaltending holds up – the Flames will post equal, if not better, results during the 2015-16 NHL season. Calgary was 4-4 in preseason action.

Vancouver Canucks: Remake – not a rebuild – continues on Canada’s West coast

Following a shuffling of the deck, in the front office, behind the bench and on the ice, Vancouver was posted as a +3330 ML favorite to win the Stanley Cup last season. Similar to the Flames the Canucks enjoyed a better season than some pundits predicted. Vancouver posted a 48-29-5 record and finished second behind Anaheim in the Pacific Division. After owing the Flames during the two previous seasons, with a 9-1 record, the Canucks lost six times against Calgary last year. These teams are playing for 260th time with the Canucks holding a 125-88-33-13 overall series record. After opening their season with a 4-2 win at the Saddledome last year, the Canucks have lost four straight in Calgary by a 17-9 margin. Vancouver was also 4-4 during their tune-up contests. 

Flames vs Canucks Call: Feeling Calgary has risen above Vancouver on the Stanley Cup contender list, we see the Flames opening their season on a positive note tonight. The Flames players will most certainly reflect on the negativity from their opening night loss on home ice last year – they won’t want a repeat here. We are backing the Stampede City Crew with a 500 unit wager on the money line posted at SportsInteraction. Canadian Born – SIA offers a wealth of NHL puck betting action.
