Calgary Flames fans have been waiting a long time to see their favorite team win the Stanley Cup. The Flames last won the Cup in 1988-89 and haven’t played in a Cup final series since 2003-04 but there’s a sense that the current group in Calgary is building toward some sort of magnificent outcome.
In forward Johnny Gaudreau the Flames suit up one of the most dynamic point producers in the game today. Gaudreau is surrounded by an impressive supporting cast, including Sean Monahan, Elias Lindholm and Matthew Tkachuk. Due to their propensity to score – Calgary produces goals above the NHL average and also scores on the power play ahead of the league curve – the Flames are one of the NHL’s most consistent over wagers on the total bet. Calgary is equally successful at home or on the road, and there aren’t many teams in the league that you can say that about.
Another key element to the success of the Flames is that in Mark Giordano. T.J. Brodie, Travis Hamonic and Noah Hanifin, their top four defensemen are right there with the league’s most reliable rearguard tandems. And they get the job done at both ends of the rink. Calgary’s blueline crew moves the puck well and produces points at a pace on par with the most dangerous defensive units in the NHL.
