WILL ROGERS NHL GAME OF THE DAY
Minnesota vs. Calgary,
03/02/2019 22:00 EDT,
Score: 4 - 2
Money Line: -170 Calgary
The set-up: The Wild come in off a 3-2 win over Winnipeg on the road Tuesday and I believe they’ll suffer a predictable letdown here in this difficult road venue. Calgary enters off a 2-1 road in New Jersey on Wednesday. These teams haven’t played in 2019 yet, but they’ve played twice this season. Both were Flames victories and I think that history is going to repeat itself for a third time here. The Wild have won four in a row and I believe they finally have a letdown here. The Flames are still fighting for top spot in the conference and they won’t take the foot off the gas at home.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well, but Calgary is 6-1 in its last seven home games vs. a team with a winning road record, while Minnesota just 6-16 in its last 22 after allowing two goals or less in its previous game. Lay the price, expect a blowout.
