Free NHL Pick: Under 5.5

Does this game look like another defensive battle? That could hold true here as the Flames have a decent amount of offensive power, but it can be stymied if the goalie is good and that is what happened in the opening game. Look for the Flames, though, to continue with the better shooting and with more shots the Stars defense will give up a goal or two. Final Score Prediction, Calgary Flames win but play on the under 2-1.
