Calgary has been the NHL’s best road team this season, posting an 11-2-2 record away from Scotiabank Saddledome. Leading goal scorer Andrew Mangiapane has played a key role in that success, scoring 15 of his 16 goals on the road. Mangiapane is tied for third in the Rocket Richard race.

The Flames are allowing just two goals against per game, which is tops in the NHL. Starting goalie Jacob Markstrom is having an excellent season with a .939 save percentage and five shutouts. Offensively, the Flames are scoring 3.21 goals per game, which is ninth-best in the NHL.

Vegas’ high-powered offense and leaky defense has led to the over cashing in four of their last five games. It’s also hit in seven of their last eight games against the Pacific Division. Calgary’s elite defense has led to the under hitting in 13 of their 24 games this season.

Flames vs Golden Knights Pick

Can Calgary finally get their first win at T-Mobile Arena? The Flames have won five straight road games and will face a Vegas team that is only 7-5-0 in their home arena.

A key matchup will be Calgary’s fifth-ranked penalty kill facing a VGK power play that has scored three goals in their last two games.

We should be in for a high-scoring battle Sunday when you consider how productive these offenses have been.

Something to note when considering backing the Flames as road underdogs in Sunday’s NHL odds is that Vegas has been Markstrom’s kryptonite. The Flames netminder is 2-6-1 against VGK in his career with a 4.08 GAA.
