Calgary Flames – Colorado Avalanche Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 21:05

On defense Calgary has 648 hits and they have blocked 544 shots from the opposition, which is 27th in the league. They have 1,349 face-off wins compared to 1,231 losses, meaning their face-off win percentage is 52.3%. Their defensive zone percentage is at 45.2% for the season, which is 28th in the NHL. Their Fenwick percentage of 53% ranks 5th as they have 1,965 attempts while they have given up 1,740 shots on the defensive end. That is 4th in the league. Calgary is 4th in the NHL in Corsi percentage with 53.5% as they've attempted 2,627 shots on net at full strength while they've given up 2,284 shots on net in the same situations. The Flames are 4th in the league in starting possessions in the offensive zone, doing so 54.8% of the time.

The Flames racked up 107 points for a reason and I think the OT home loss will be a bit of a wakeup call that the Avs aren't going to go easily. Calgary was a big favorite in Game 2 but could not finish the job and now are in danger of going behind in the series on the road. But I don't think that happens. Calgary has done well as a favorite this season and I am betting on it to get the job done here.
