Hurricanes at Flames 1/22/19 - NHL Picks & Predictions

The Hurricanes are coming into this game here after destroying the Edmonton Oilers in the last game they played. The Hurricanes were able to score 7 goals in the win, but the Hurricanes defense also had some major issues in the game as they struggled to get the defense going as they allowed the Oilers to score a total of 4 goals. That is definitely going to be something the Hurricanes need to work on heading into this game and in the all star break.

The Hurricanes on the season have only been able to get 2.75 goals a game, but the defense is giving up 2.96 goals a game. The Hurricanes are converting at a clip of 17%, but have managed to kill off 79.1%, The Flames are slowly pulling away in the Pacific Division and that is going to be something the Flames should be able to do rather easily here. The Flames are coming into this game here after picking up a win over the Edmonton team by a score of 5-2. So while the Oilers did not get as many goals scored, they were able to come into the game and have a better defensive showing in the game here.

The Flames on the year have managed to get a total of 3.74 goals a game, but have given up 2.82 goals a game. The Flames have ended up getting 24.1% conversion on the power play, but have killed off 78.8%.

These two teams have had an offensive flurry the past couple of games, the difference being the Flames have a defense that can step up where the Hurricanes defense has failed them in the high scoring games. Look for the Flames to come into this game with a strong offensive showing from Gaudreau and company, but Aho will try his best to match the flurry, but fall short. Final Score Prediction, Calgary Flames win on the over 5-3.
