UNDER 6.5 Rangers/Flames
Blog Picks (12-8-1) (2 Wins in a Row)
Let’s break it down. Calgary hasn’t exactly been a scoring juggernaut recently, managing to surpass the three-goal mark just once in their last five games. It’s been a bit of a dry spell for them on the offensive front.
Now, let’s talk about Jacob Markstrom, Calgary’s goaltender. When he’s faced the Rangers in his last seven starts, he’s been an absolute beast with a remarkable 6-0-1 record, a stunning .941 save percentage, and a jaw-dropping 1.71 goals-against average. It’s like he’s got a magic forcefield in front of the net.
On the flip side, New York hasn’t been setting the world on fire in the scoring department either. In four of their five games this season, there have been six or fewer goals scored. And that’s despite a somewhat average start from their goaltender, Igor Shesterkin. But I’ve got a hunch that Shesterkin is going to raise his game tonight.
So, when you’re sizing up this game, it’s not just a hunch or a gut feeling; it’s based on cold, hard stats. Expect a low-scoring battle, and keep an eye on Markstrom’s incredible record against the Rangers. It’s a game that’s shaping up to be a goaltending duel, and you might just see Shesterkin step up to the plate in a big way. Get ready for a tight one!
