Given how well the Flames are playing, they should have their way with a New York squad playing for the second straight night. The Isles are just 1-6 in their last seven back-to-back situations. It doesn’t help that they haven’t performed well against playoff teams.

Given the late start of this game, the betting line could tick up significantly before puck drop. The Flames are a solid play up to -200, but if the juice gets too heavy, the Calgary regulation line (-112) is worth a look.

Pick: Flames ML (-186)
