Ottawa Senators vs. Calgary Flames Predictions

Score Prediction Flames 5 Senators 4

Calgary's not officially out of the playoff race yet thanks to Montreal losing in regulation last night, but three losses in their last four sealed the Flames fate in reality.

While there is always the chance that Calgary holds onto hope and lives up to this chalky price against a bad team, playing their second in as many nights, I'm not interested in laying it. Ottawa's been playing much better hockey of late, but they are still 0-9 SU this year in the second game of a back-to-back as well.

This leads me to back the high side of the total here, as neither side can really be trusted, and the scenario of it being a likely meaningless contest doesn't hurt that idea either. The first five meetings of the year between these two all had at least six goals scored, and this game should revert back to that form.
