NHL Hockey Betting Odds & Picks: Calgary Flames vs. Los Angeles Kings: February 12th 2009
The Los Angeles Kings enter into this home contest against the Calgary Flames playing their best hockey of the season, as is evident by their current 4 game winning streak, that has seen them win 7 of their L/8 games. The visiting Flames are currently operating at the proverbial opposite end of the performance spectrum, having lost five of their L/6 gamers. Despite of both teams current form, this game sets up well for a hungry Flames to come up with victory against a tired Kings side, that is returning home , after playing 8 of their L/9 games on the road.
The Flames have in the past dominated this series , winning 8 of the L/9 meetings, out scoring the Kings by a 43-26 count . With that said , I’m betting on what must be considered the overall superior side (Calgary ) to have a wake up performance in this spot.
Final notes & Key Trends: Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff 11-3-1 with a 2.52 goals-against average in his last 15 games versus the Kings. Kings are 4-12 in their last 16 vs. Northwest. Kings are 3-7 in their last 10 home games .
